Yet another entry in my “abandoned dolls” series, this time a two-fer:
The arms and legs were for sale, $3 each, at Collage, a Portland crafts store where our upstairs neighbor works (hi, Sonya!). When our neighbor spotted me waxing enthusiastic over the body parts, she pointed out how some of the limbs seemed to be burned, and we started speculating on what sort of twisted ritual the dolls’ previous owners must have been conducting. Then Sonya rushed me around to another counter to show me the German broken “Frozen Charlotte” dolls, which she said someone had dug up and shipped to Portland. I was fascinated that only one of the Frozen Charlottes had a head!
