One Dream Begins as Another Ends

The dream is over. Someone else has bought that which would haven been mine. I stalked it for weeks on eBay, watching as the price fluctuated from $150 to $200 to $135 and everywhere in between. I waited as it was continuously didn't sell and was relisted, holding out hope for a price somewhere in the range of $20 to $30. (Remember, I'm cheap. Even when I really want something. ESPECIALLY when I only want it so I can scare people all over Pittsburgh.)

Sadly, she has found a home, at the low, low price of $150.



It just wasn't meant to be. OH! the fun that creeptacular doll and I would have had together. I'm sad.

But, I have a new dream! Now I'm stalking a new love. So far, the seller wants far more than I'm willing to pay, but I'm patient. Who wouldn't be willing to wait for this freaky little face? And, who would be willing to pay over $150 for it?



*shudder*

  5. They have to be made by the same person. There can't be two people that create those things that look too much alike.

    And you laugh at me for looking at roadkill. At least it's a natural part of life. Those things AREN'T.

  6. ARGH! {shakes fist in general direction of Pittsburgh}

    I came over here after a little shot of courage (or glass o' chardonnay) and still got the bejeezuz scared outta me. That second one?...so creepy it's making my butt twitch!

  7. @Karen--It is the same seller. I think her crappy cell phone camera adds to the mystique. She has one more right now, but it's not #1 on my list at the moment.

  8. I will give you $10 dollars to never post those pictures again!

  10. Seriously? I'm gonna have nightmares tonight.

    If I haven't already told you I LOVE your header!

  11. I wonder how you browse these dolls and are able to sleep at night. Oh wait - you don't sleep...I forgot. Since the toddler is keeping you up, you'll creep us out with these dolls so we can all be sleepless together? Brilliant! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I like how the new one's name is "Piglet". Seems appropriate. Ugh. Can you imagine walking into that house and having all those creepy dolls staring back at you? Chucky's got nothing on these dolls.

  13. Ooooh, just when I got the homicidal doll nightmares to stop, here they come again! SCARY!

  14. This is scaring me. Who thinks up these things?

    I think we should maybe all kick in $10 each and buy the darn things just to get the pictures of them off the internet.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hahaha! That second one looks a little like Howdy Doody. remember him or am I just old?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh god...not again! I am going to hope and hope that the price doesn't fall. There is no way I would be okay with you bringing that thing anywhere. Especially if it got its own stroller.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Maybe collectively, as blog friends, we can hold an intervention for you. We'll find you a new hobby. One that doesn't involve things that are creepy.

    ReplyDelete
  18. LOL, I'm in with just jamie - I'd love to visit without having a hald heart attack every time. How about etsy? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm in with Jamie on the intervention. I'll bring the wine.

  20. Oh my lands! This has got to stop! I'm starting to flinch when I go to your blog :-)

  21. that looks like the giant from jack in the bean stalk in one of my kids story books. how awful. and someone will buy that? i would not be able to sleep if i knew that was in the house!

    ReplyDelete
  22. That one doesn't look nearly as realistic. More goofy looking. Don't get me wrong - it still has the ugh factor ...

    ReplyDelete
  23. This would be a good second choice:

  24. I just want to know where that doll ended up. I imagine a very strange house with tons of similar "things" on display. I would assume owned by a very strange person who doesn't get out of the house much.

    Just my thoughts. I just can't fathom that someone would buy that thing for a child.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Nightmares.....thanks! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  26. Why must you keep tormenting us?

    ReplyDelete
  27. I agree with Irene . . . I want a peek inside the home your beloved went to. The winning bid wasn't made by N. Bates, was it?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Seriously. What have we ever done to you to deserve these freaky doll pics?!

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Good God, who in the hell in their right mind would buy one of these things for $150...I think someone would have to pay me $200 to take it off their hands. And then I would hide it on my highest closet shelf never to be seen again!

    This gives new meaning to the word creepy!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Eeeekkkk.....

    We must find these people. Who buy them. Seriously.

  31. stop

    the

    madness!!!!

    i was hoping for a good night's sleep tonight. i'm thinking you do this to get me back for laughing at you for toddler night dramas.

    ReplyDelete
  32. That is so funny! creepy but still funny. And much like a car accident...you don't want to look because it might be horrible but at the same time you just have to see.

    I think you should add the picture of the one you lost to your layout, everyone will just love it! And besides it might freak out some new comers to your blog and spike interest.

  33. He looks like one of the 7 Dwarfs! Was there a "Creepy"? I thought of you on Thursday. We went to the Arts Festival. Did you see the Kreepy Doll booth? That really cracked me up!

  36. Okay, Can I just say that these freaky things COMPLETELY cured my baby fever? Oh, and to accidentally click and make the picture bigger? Oh the nightmares.

  37. AACK!! I couldn't let this pass... Had to post my response on my blog to give the full effect. heh heh heh... Hint: It has something to do with this critter's parentage.

  38. Damama sent me. Sometimes I wonder why I listen! I could just about cope with the first one - just! - but not the second. Give me dragons any day!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Well, honey, you can come visit my new little baby anytime you like.

    Ha. Not. I'd love to know who is buying these things. Then again, maybe I'd rather not know. Something tells me it might be like that one X Files episode set in Western/rural PA with the deformed mom who was kept under the bed. These baby dolls could certainly be her offspring.

    *double shudder*

  41. Ohmygawd, ohmygawd, ohmygawd! I didn't think it was possible but that second doll is actually SCARIER than the first!

    ReplyDelete
  42. um, that's horrid. I can't believe you stalked that ugly dead baby! tee hee. I think that's why I love coming here so much though...

  45. We cleaned out osme bags of old toys and stuff before I left for vacation and I found a creepy doll that I totally forgot we had. I hope mr b didn't throw it away while I was gone, because I can't wait to take a photo and put it on a shirt or something for you.

  46. Just when I let my guard down, you sneak another in there. Great, back to the Dr for meds.
