Our sister-in-law collects dolls that scare the crap out of us. It is funny because, like me, she is scared of germs on public door knobs (Lee won't have to look beyond his own family for research as he writes the Monk books). Yet, these dead dolls displayed around the house don't scare her. Her doll displays had me shaking in my Easy Spirits as I snapped away... really, shaking (the picture isn't even in focus!). I don't know how anyone sleeps in a house with these frightful things (and my house is haunted!).
The man doll reminds me of Sol on Deadwood.
