Doll Decor, Don't Do It!

Yep, you can just go ahead and skip the handkerchief ghosts and plastic spiders this Halloween. Nothing, nothing screams creepy like old dolls scattered about. Lest you need any convincing, read on...

Dolls are right up there with their jack-in-the-box and clown counterparts as far as disturbing childhood items go, but as a lover of antique and junk shops, I'm constantly coming into contact with these creepy little beasts. My gut reaction is to run the other direction, but then I think about all the quirky, character-filled homes that manage to pull off the curiosity shop vibe quite well...maybe the creepy old lovelies have a place after all.

What decor items give you the shivers?
