I love your photos! There seems to be something totally hypnotic about them...and Kewpie Dolls have always given me the creeps!
I am so pleased that we met!

Pat Tillett said...

Thanks, they give me the willies also. Most of the dolls are antiques, who gave up their heads for the sake of art...
thanks again!

Antique dolls are my fave collection!
I am now following your lovely blog.

Cool Pictures and a cooooool header! The extra 'o's are to illustrate how cool it is.

Leovi said...

Oh! I was longing for these creatures. I love the blog header you put

Chuck said...

That header shot is badass! Those other pictures are just super-creepy...and with only 5 days to go.

Ms. Anthropy said...

Leave it to you, Pat! Even the creepy photos are awesome.

Pat Tillett said...

Jhon - Thanks! disturbing is good in October...

Appropriately creepy photos!!! And making me excited to get a pumpkin to carve and some ambient halloween lighting. :)

Pat Tillett said...

cheeseboy - Thanks! I appreciate it!

TVA - Speaking of pumpkins, I'm in need of a pie...

Costas - Thanks Costas! It is the season...

Francisca said...

I'm getting a kick out of the comments here, Pat... And I also have to say I noticed the header. You're on a roll of "evocative"...

[The dieffenbachia paintings you admired on my post today are about $500 each... Want them? I can sure arrange it. ;-) I didn't notice if they were sold by the time I left the gallery. A lot was. I liked these, too, but was put off a tad by the ladybugs.]

"We go dancing nightly in the attic
While the moon is rising in the sky
If I'm too rough, tell me
I'm so scared your little head will come off in my hands"
A Cooper

Deliciously, delightfully creepy! I love the middle shot.

Salt said...

Yay! It's almost here!
I am LOVING the new header.

Bossy Betty said...

Pat--You don't scare me. However, your pictures do!!!! Creepy! (Your pictures, not you!)

Jayne said...

Hee! Every time I pop up so do the dolls. Actually that sentence sounds worthy of Halloween in itself!

RawknRobynsGoneBlogWild said...

I'm with Marlene.
Would you please pass the turkey and cranberry sauce?

Jimmy said...

I agree with Ms. A, your photos are awesome even the creepy ones, Great countdown my Friend.
