My Sister Rules! Subtitle: The Coolest Thing I Ever Got For Free!

My sister's family is in the process of renovating an old farm house that belonged to her husband's Aunt Jack. Aunt Jack left behind a great many things. A. Great. Many. Things.
My sister contacted me after uncovering treasures in the attic, and told me that she had a "surprise" for me. ANYTHING from an old farm house attic sounded like something that I would INDEED be interested in, but I had NOOOOOOO inkling of the gloriousness of the treasure that awaited...

Unfortunately, the linen and wool bodies were so moldy and disintegrating that they couldn't be saved. Some of the limbs were pretty eaten up as well. The heads though, OH, THE HEADS!!! I will be working at preserving what's left of them for display purposes.
Thank you, Aunt Jack. I will take good care of them.
