Creepy Or Cute





I love old crackly chippy dolls and doll heads. I am fully aware that there are just two types of people when it comes to such matters. I fall into the group of people who find dolls and doll heads cool and then there is the other group, 99% of you who find them quite creepy. What do you think, creepy or cute?

Cute!! Though I have to admit that I have no connection whatsoever with oriental stuff (unless those are imitations of Western things). So I really should say: Cute, no-no, cute!

I don't know if I think they are cute so much as I think they are interesting. I am always curious about what people created years ago. Their ideas about what dolls or other items should look like is fascinating to me.

Okay, I have to admit, if I stumbled on one in the hallway at night, laying abandoned in the dark-CREEPY!

I consider them crute! Definitely a cross between creepy and cute. I adore them, but wouldn't want one in my house. Crazy!
Peace,

Their charm has to do with the fact that they are both creepy and cute...A very vintage-type combo, it seems. Love the doll heads. I had a small collection once, then their chipped little heads finally started to freak me out...and I had to hide them somewhere!

Can we vote cute AND a little creepy? I find some creepy things cute, and a couple of those qualify. I'd LOVE to display those in my house!

It's all about the eyes. If the eyes are sweet, they are cute otherwise, a bit creepy. Creepy can be fun though (in a creepy sort of way LOL!)

Hi Linda! I think they are terrific, especially in a group. Some of them are quite beautiful, others are a little macabre. But we sell tons of them, especially from our gallery space. And, you're right, people definitely fall into one of two categories, love 'em or hate 'em! Love your blog. Come say hi next time you're at Grayslake! xo -- Sandy/rhubarb reign

Linda, I absolutely adore your collections, but please make this one stop looking at me. :)

I love creepy dolls, I think they are cute, of course I have my own collection, several that I got from you! I have a legless doll in my group:)

I have a collection of three of these little ladies each wearing a little paper chemise. I think they wish the dressers were a little longer. They look like I feel when I where a too small paper frock while waiting in the doctor's office.

Cute! Cute! Cute! These so remind me of going to my grandmother's house. Lovely.

P.S. Harper says THANK YOU for admiring her new trick! She's all aglow now. :)
