Who says old broken off doll heads are junk?? I do!! And they are the spookiest and best junk ever. Doll heads peering out from glass apothecary jars and added to an old rusty wrought iron chandelier can make an artistic and unique Halloween display.  Boo

Nice display job!

The lady working thought I was crazy, but I sold the "ornaments" and "topper" right away. I collect doll heads and old scary looking dolls. Freaks my poor kids out...but I love it!

Years ago there was a garbage truck in my town covered with doll heads. They hung from everything...bumpers, mirrors, everywhere. It was all very bizarre but cools at the same time. I keep expecting their eyes to open and close for no apparent reason…and mumble in Latin. Nice bunch of heads.

Christina_S writes: Demented in all the right ways ;) Love what you have done here, the chandelier would be the talk of a Halloween party! I also really like what you did with the doll in the locked cage, wonderful. I've collected some creepy dolls from Goodwill over the past month for Halloween... you have inspired me to get them out a bit early :) Posted: 9:07 pm on September 9th
