Abandoned house and a creepy doll inside [Poland]

It was a dusky December afternoon. The sun was getting closer to the horizon painting everything with dark shades and that day’s trip to South-eastern Poland was going to the end. However, a small abandoned house on the hill near the road made us stop and have a look inside. Quite cosy at first sight and bright from the outside, mainly because of its white walls, it had a completely different, gloomy atmosphere behind its decaying doors.

What a lovely set of photos; nice work! But I didn't think the doll made it creepy at all - rather, charming and wistful. What a pretty little home that must have been once; I hope they were happy there.

Thank you. Good that it doesn't make you scary :) For me decaying toys always look creepy - dust and damage the time does for them turn them into something scary. And imagination works in a bit different way in abandoned places :)

It reminds me of a poem from my childhood:

I ONCE had a sweet little doll, dears,
The prettiest doll in the world;
Her cheeks were so red and so white, dears,
And her hair was so charmingly curled.
But I lost my poor little doll, dears,
As I played in the heath one day;
And I cried for her more than a week, dears,
But I never could find where she lay.

I found my poor little doll, dears,
As I played in the heath one day:
Folks say she is terribly changed, dears,
For her paint is all washed away,
And her arm trodden off by the cows, dears,
And her hair not the least bit curled:
Yet, for old sake’s sake, she is still, dears,
The prettiest doll in the world.

By Charles Kingsley (1819–1875)

The doll is a lot less creepy than I expected lol. Her smile is a little unsettling, though. It's HER house now! You're gonna see her peeking in your window at night now

Lovely photos as always. Love the snowy setting. I also love the way you ended with a surprise doll picture. XD

If only you knew that now when I'm reading your comment it's half past midnight here :D

Thank you for the kind words. Glad to hear you like my photos. Just don't say that the last picture made you scary :D

I think that altar beside the table is creepier!

The inhabitants of such village houses are often old people and usually they are very religious, so that explains why there was the altar there, but I know what you mean, finding it in the place like this maybe really creepy.
