7Gypsies is now carrying reproduction cabinet card frames. You know, the kind of cardboard framing that you find around antique photos. I got a couple in the mail just to try them out, and here's my favorite result. The outside is designed to look like a fairly run of the mill family photo:


But when you open it up, you notice that this "family" has some unusual members, including some slightly creepy baby dolls, and a baby-headed adult!


I put the figures in the foreground on tabs, so there's a pop up effect.


In this family, large creepy baby heads are a priority. Cheesy


Kind of odd, but it was fun to do.

So awesome rackycoo! Why are dolls one of the scariest things in the world?  (especially the one right behind the baby doing the splits- eek!) This family is even creepier than the Addams family  Smiley

I think it's their vacant stare that sets them apart...

Even current dolls... I can't leave a toy section without having the rest of my day slightly ruined! (especially mechanical, crying or wetting dolls, that's just not right!)
