They're baaaack....

Feeling a bit sympathetic for the decrepitness(is that a word)
of these lil' retired babies, I decided
on a new look, they will be shelf/chair sitters...

You know, like leaning on the corner of a table or night stand...

or on a shelf/mantle...

...or on a chair...

...or the original, with bottom lighted lamp base...
I found a new wiring system that only requires a backside lobotomy...
ewwww...yes, a hole drilled in the back of the head.
The bulb simply clips in the hole allowing for the placement of the
nightlight in many more natural settings.
Yes, I said natural...
Not wanting to destroy these sweet lil' fabric bodies,
I felt this was an alternate solution...
and how versatile is that!
You can shape them in any stance, anywhere!

As soon as all my wiring comes this week,
they will be priced and for sale on The Wild Thing blog...
be afraid!!!

This is too funny. Wait until you see the doll head plate server that TOT talked out of Lisa at the Blog Party. You are going to want to copy it.

LOVE LOVE the two dolls on the right. I never see an old decrepit doll, who has seen better days without thinking of you. Who would ever dream of your creations of them, but YOU?

These dolls remind me of some sci fi movies with killer dolls! In some ways, the shelf dolls look more creepy than the lamp light heads! Great creativity!

YOU ARE SICK, AND I LOVE IT!!!!! These babies are to creepy and strange what with the eyes lighting up. I could see them out in the yard for Halloween, just add old cribs, high chairs, some lace[black or aged] strollers, and have the babies posing in them. Then have some classic baby music playing in the back ground.LOL I think I'm even sicker then you. PS. don't forget the spider webs Thanks for sharing. Decgal
