Mesmer got to be the first of my Blythes to travel. We had a terrible disaster with some reactive plastic from a vintage Sindy dining chair that stained the backs of her legs. It was heart-breaking... we discovered it when I got her down to see James' arrival and so the day was bittersweet with a perfect new dolly and an injury to one of my beloved girls. I took a picture, but can't bear to post it yet. Too sad. However - it frees me up to let Mesmer wear black stockings and tights now, as she has been craving for a while - I read how they could stain and I was afraid... but now they hide the red plastic chair stain and who cares if they stain more... and she is now rooting for an eventual change to a super-bendy Pure Neemo body.
Long story short - to make it up to her, she insisted on being picked to come with me on my trip to my family reunion in Kentucky. It rained most of the time we were there - which was a bit disappointing because I brought her Vintage Skipper swimsuit and we were planning to try to sneak off for a poolside photoshoot... but I did take this fun picture of her looking wistfully out the window at the rain.
There was still rain once we got to Cincinatti - even severe thunderstorm warnings!
