Antique Eeeks































...I love antique dolls, but man they can be creepy!!! I think watching certain scary movies over the years has turned dolls into untrustworthy toys that have a mind of their own. The faces on some of them.....EGAD.

I adore going into antique shops or thrift stores and looking at all the old toys and dolls...they had so much character and there are so many varieties. I have a small collection of vintage dolls,mostly native and eskimo but a few others as well. I must take photos to show you peeps my lil' collection. I'd love to learn more about the different era's and history of dolls. It's neat to see how they evolved.

Eeek...no wonder horror movies showed them as props for the 'eeecky effect' I guess...

Very much know what you mean! Fascinating to find and view old dolls. There's something about the expressions isn't there? But also, there's the small creepy side to them :)
