Those are eerie- I feel like music should accompany the photos-

Vencora said...

lately i've been having to make sure i don't look at your photos before bed, afraid i'll wake up to a gang of dolls awaiting vengence for some unremembered crime committed by humankind.

Joe Cap said...

Creepy, scary stuff!

Georgina Dollface said...

Do you remember the Twilight Zone episode with the talking doll who eventually ended up killing the girl's mother by tripping her on the stairs? That episode scared the bayjeezsus out of me. That's what these photos remind me of. - G

Fabulous! This is increasingly taking a more surreal and the accompanying black and white theme, Pat Well you'll overcome. A greeting from Spain.

Entre Nous said...

Oh I love it. Too busy right now trying to find our creepy Halloween trappings to do a cool spooky post like yours! I'm hoping to find them and catch up with the neighborhood in our decor so that I can do a real ghost story on THE night!

Pat Tillett said...

Entre Nous - I don't have to go to work, so I do have the time! take photos!

Pat Tillett said...

Berit - Thanks! I'm glad you like it...

baygirl - Thanks! even I think they are pretty spooky...

Ree - thaa-anks! I appreciate it.

Betty - Thanks Betty! they are pretty interesting...
