It's a Shorpy life

I pointed out Polka-Dot Tot to my wife, indicating that October 1958 is when she was born, and she told me to forget about that and to notice, instead, that the pattern on the little-person rocking chair is identical to the pattern on our big-person rocking chair.

Scarred for life

He or She for having to wear that outfit, and me seeing it.

Goosebumps

I don't know, there's something about a miniature Pagliacci wearing a Wonder Bread pattern and a Phantom of the Opera mask that chills me to the bone.

Slice of Life

I can't help but think of Wonder Bread!

Just Plain Cute

Ready for Trick or Treat. I can see Mom in the mirror, who probably took the picture next to the piano.
