“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Haunted dolls - Jade

Are you ready?
The Haunted Halloween Doll Challenge is upon us!

I tell you...the time is just 
slipping by!

This was a lot of fun...

Maybe Frankenstein's monsters
were put together
in a laboratory,
but this little one
was created with love...love and creepiness.

In my version
The bride of Frankenstein falls
madly in love with Frankenstein's monster.

  (Google image)

they head off into the mountains
to a cozy little cottage
away from any nasty pitchfork wielding villagers.

after living in seclusion
for more than a year
they venture into town to show off
the newest addition (Jade) to their
incredible family. 
everyone is so awestruck by this beauty
they forget they ever chased poor old
Frankie around with sticks.
The family is lovingly welcomed.

And they lived happily ever after.

Thank you Kim for hosting this challenge!!

I had this baby doll rolling around outside for about four years.
Bought her at a yard sale..had big plans for it, lol
I never really had a chance to do anything with her,
other than throw her in the washing machine every few months.
The rain and the dogs got to it, 
the body literally fell apart.

I used an old coffee jar for her body...
giant pipe cleaners for her arms and legs...
acrylic paint, hot glue
& magic for the rest of her:)
She's about 14 inches tall.

I had SO much fun
do not be surprised if more of these
girls start showing up on my blog.

Head over to see the rest of the Haunted Halloween Dolls.
It's sure to be a scream.
