Patterns Emerging…

If you have come along on the journey from The Vintage Chair, you know that I usually like things that are a bit… off the wall… or ON the wall, as long as it’s weird.  (here and here just to give you an idea…) It’s become a running joke amongst my friends and myself.

Recently I noticed something quite humorous: Friends of ours came to visit and laughed at (and were seriously a little creeped out by) a small porcelain doll head that I had on a window sill.  A few days later as I brought home my shopping bag from Pier 1, I started noticing a pattern…. a doll head on the window sill, a vintage hat stand “head” in the dining room, a vintage glass Native American head cologne bottle, and lo’ and behold… what do you think was in my shopping bag from Pier 1? Yes. Another head… So I decided to embrace my *ahem* quirk…..

Anybody else have any weird collections? (crickets….crickets…..) anyone? Okay then.

Have a happy Tuesday, friends!

Well I have these heads left over from the practice semester in cosmetology school that I use as a hat rack. Though the creepiness factor gets pointed out to me more and more, I may have to get rid of them.

I have a bunch of styrofoam heads and one plaster head for displaying hats and headbands that I make. They're part of the family - but I think they really disturb some of my friends.
Also, I'm glad I'm not the only one with a morbid aesthetic. I am obsessed with old photos of people I don't know, particularly daguerreotypes... Love them.

Can you please go back and get me one of those heads! I've been looking everywhere for it!!! And I quite like your collection of oddities. Now if you start adding other appendages to it, I might start to worry. (Maybe :P)
