Doll stuff.






These pictures were from my mom’s house. She has shelves and shelves of dolls. Been collecting them for years.

We all had gathered there because my sister was up from southern Illinois. It was kind of a late holiday get together. We see each other about 2 or 3 times a year. Just about right. Ha.

The light was almost to low for pictures but on the other hand, it gives them a grainy look, almost like they are a painting, not a photographed object.

There are some pretty ones and some that could terrorize a little kid with their eyes. I always think of the scary doll episodes from the Twilight Zone. And there were a few of them. Shiver....

Anyway, these could make great photo material – I’d like to try some in regular daylight.

And keeping with the doll theme, Doll Parts by Courtney Love, Hole.

It’s on the CD Live Through This. I really like the CD. She’s sings with lots of energy.







i am doll eyes

doll mouth, doll legs

i am doll arms, big veins

dog bait

yeah, they really want you

they really want you, they really do
yeah, they really want you
they really want you, and i do too

i want to be the girl with the most cake

i love it so much it just turns to hate

i fake it so true, i am beyond fake

and someday, you will ache like i ache

someday, you will ache like i ache

i am doll parts

bad skin, doll heart

it's stands for knife

for the rest of my life

yeah, they really want you

they really want you, they really do

yeah, they really want you

they really want you, and i do too

i want to be the girl with the most cake

he only loves those things because he loves

to see them break

i fake it so true i am beyond fake

and someday, you will ache like i ache
someday, you will ache like i ache

someday, you will ache like i ache

someday, you will ache like i ache

someday, you will ache like i ache

my great aunt collected those types of dolls and had a basement full. Some were "life size" and I've actually got one. Before I knew that it was probably quite valuable, we used to dress it up as a football mascot and the poor thing's been through the ringer!

I love that song. Still can't see/access your music player though :(

At first when I clicked on I thought maybe Amy had hijacked your blog!

I hope take and post more pictures of them.

Hi Deb. I can't think what's wrong with the video. Thanks for stopping anyway.

Toccata. Hi. Amy is terrible with the computer. Ha. I plan on taking bunches. Thanks.

No worries...it's on my end I'm sure. I can't see videos on myspace either - something of mine needs upgrading.

Those do look like a painting!

It's really sad watching that vid - she looks so ill these days.

Dolls have always kind of scared me a bit. Maybe it was because of scary tv shows and movies about dolls...or maybe it was just my overactive imagination. Looks like the one in pink is spreading gossip doesn't it?

I love that song Doll Parts
