First up is a lovely little find I made awhile back at one of our favorite local antique stores, The Barn.
This is not one piece for sale; they are two random items that someone thought would look better coupled together. The mannequin head sports a very nice, long mustache/beard combination, which you can just make out behind the edge of the "Teddy Bears Ride Free" box. Now, I am not sure what the exact message here is, what with putting a mustached head into a box that proclaims there are "free rides" available... Interesting.
Next up is a beauty of a doll, found on etsy. This giant Chalkware Kewpie doll has been restored to its former painted,
clothed, hair-done glory, minus the eyes, which apparently are original to the doll.

Okay... So here she is, in all her, um, glory. What's up with the weird rash on her hands, tummy, knees and toes? Looking in the background, all those kewpies seem to have red knees. It's a little odd, I'm just saying...
Here's another head for you...
