The doll could be saved but would need a lot of work.
Might depend on how. If the body was a total wash you could always find/make a replacement. I'd do some research to see if she's worth a lot as is or in cleaned up condition, but if she's a no-name random porcelain doll then I'm sure just finding new legs and adding her head and arms to another body of your choice wouldn't be that hard. <3
oh my god that first thing. i can't/
I'd buy that doll for my Mom. She'd love her.
The first painting....
That is the most perfect behind-the-bathroom-door painting I've ever seen!
oh, you are EVIL!!! (i like that.)
That painting. What is this I don't even
What decor would that painting ever hope of working in? I'd be completely in awe of a designer that could design around it. I think there should be a show on HGTV that incorporates Thrifthorror finds!
Oh, that poor doll makes me so sad. She's so beautiful and broken and her hand on her thigh, resting like she's still the lady of the manor...
Honestly, I think you have the making of a great show there. Something like "Ready, Steady, Cook" for interior designers - contestants would have to bring the three most horrible thriftstore finds and then the designers would have to make up a room around those.

Re: the painting...
I think he's supposed to be bending his knees but the artist didn't use shadow and light correctly to convey that, so it looks like his lower legs are misproportioned.
When I saw the amazing picture I thought of it as some Sawesque torture device. The ultimate stop hitting yourself device.
The lock piece is actually a special mechanism that is attempting to retract all the chains. Each of his feet and arms are constantly being pulled towards the center, which would make him strike himself in the wiener.
The chain around his neck is trying to retract so his head would be near his crotch and anyone seeing him would assume he was trying to perform self fellatio, this would be very embarrassing so he is attempting to keep his head up.
Of course all of this is chained to the ground so the onlookers can get a good view.
This device is meant to teach this proud strong man the meaning of humility and cure him of his homophobia. Only by manipulating a lock with his face near his own wiener will he be free. He will realize that he did not suddenly turn gay, and just because a wiener may be near your face at some point, does not make you a bad person.
Unless of course he wants to punch/kick his junk into oblivion.
"which would make him strike himself in the wiener."
I'm still laughing.
Dolls with broken body parts, I've always felt bad about throwing them out. If a person had no legs, they would get a wheelchair...
I always wanted to get dolls like that wheelchairs when I was little and not throw them out. Put that doll in a beautiful dress, and too bad doll wheelchairs aren't more readily available!
I don't even know what to say.
A+ commentary though. XD
When I was scrolling down the page, I swear the doll's eyes moved.
Looks like a particular "artist" has trouble with feet because they've spent years practising how to draw SUPER-RIPPED ABS.
I *think* the idea behind the painting has got to be something like, "The key to the black slave's freedom is his mind."
It is, perhaps, not the best illustration of the concept.
I want that painting. period. And oh yes i could decorate around that with EASE!
slave to the cock, clearly. i kind of want it...
It looks like he woke up with his dick in some kind of safe/chastity belt thing and is trying to figure out what to make of this.
I... Just can't get over that someone painted that. D: For it to exist, someone, somewhere, had to really think it should.
