a gift from our friend bill from a German doll factory

Over  the holidays we started unloading some of the things we’ve collected since we’ve been together. I’m more of a vintage clothes horse and book freak, but Jeff loves the things that nobody else really wants – broken doll parts, orphaned buttons, scary taxidermy, a bag full of teeth molds. What I find totally endearing is how much our friends embrace the creepiness and indulge us in broken doll parts and scary taxidermy, as well as photos to add to our post-mortem collection. The items I photographed in this post were things we are keeping because we can’t bear to part with them just yet.

I made two young boys’ day buying their creepy old doll at a flea market. Nobody could have been more surprised than them. Her milky eyed head ‘s on the bookshelf 🙂

You’ll have to post photos of her on your blog, I’d love to see her in all her creepy loveliness!

A road trip to hell.
