Home security system, the early years

A burglar breaks into the house, Within moments he's overcome by a migraine or vertigo, thanks to the wallpaper's merciless pattern. He collapses, but the patterned rug is the last straw. When the police arrive, the burglar's only too happy to surrender and be bundled into a nice, restful Black Maria.

China Doll!

Do her eyes close when she lies down?

Cute and terrifying

I know Marion is real. Of course she is. But she has the uncanny going because she looks like a life sized doll.

That Wallpaper

Is most likely hiding someone. Even the frame of the old-lady portrait is almost not there.

I can just see it

What a find! I'll bet wee Marion had a smile as pretty as that carefully pressed frock she's wearing.
