An old friend recently invited me to look at some of her attic treasures in the hopes that I might sell some of it for her. God only knows why some people hold onto some things like these broken, decayed dolls, but some of us are now glad that they did.
If old dolls creep you out, look no further.
If you are fascinated by the beauty of peeling paint and antique doll construction, read on.
No child would play with these now, so I am amazed that these dolls were kept as if some child might want to.
The dolls were stored, jumbled together, in a cardboard box in the attic, exposed to extreme heat in the summer and extreme freezing in the winter.
Most of their heads are spilt open.
Unfortunately, her head is split open.
Fortunately, her fragile bonnet hides the scar.
Then there's the doll my 14 year old said, "Please, Mom, promise me that you'll lock her away so she won't come and kill me in the middle of the night!"
Old dolls have really gotten a bad reputation.
All of these and more will be available for purchase in my etsy shop.
