The movie that scared the absolute pants off me when I was a wee kipper was Day of the Trifids. Plants that strategically spat poison into the eyes of unsuspecting human folk causing them to wander about in a blind, stupefied zombie state. Aaargh!!!! This particular movie hid under the guise of ABC television making ones' parents think it would be appropriate viewing...Ha!!!
And then there was Poltergeist. Oh my! I almost can't write about it without looking over my shoulder. "They're he-re!!!" This one caused me to set up a midnight camp on Mum and Dad's floor for a good week.....I was 14!
Well my creative space this week is channelling a little bit of trifid action. I have my first order for some of my Mademoiselle dolls. Not just one or two eerie ladies ....no, no...I have 20 of the loves haunting me and watching me with their eyeless faces. I'm up to the hand stitching phase and can't wait to give these "zombie" dolls some much needed warmth and character....and legs!
They are packed up in a box at night so they can't roam the house and terrify me on my early morning trip to the loo. I know they don't have legs yet but still.......cue creaking box lid noise....Please have a gander over here for other yummy spaces.
