Bunny and Zena (top and second from top) joined me today for a trip to the American Visionary Art Museum, Mr. Rain's Fun House , and the Sideshow gift shop, all inside the museum in Baltimore on Key Highway at Federal Hill for a day out and mini meet with Maggie (momoko_girl_1 on Flickr), the customizer of Bunny Velvet.
Maggie brought four beautiful girls, including Floss (looking ornery in pink), Twig (looking fresh from the prairie), Imma, looking just darling, and Georgia Peach, looking fabulous as always. She filled me in on every moment of Blythecon, from the swag bags to the shopping to meeting Gina Garan, and she brought me some goodies (saved for another post).
We had a great time. Went nuts in the Sideshow gift shop; even found some Blythe pins and mirrors. Had a fabulous lunch! Mr. Rain's is great. I had the butter lettuce apple and pear salad with chicken, and some pretzel bites with mustard for our "bread." Maggie had a seafood chef salad that looked divine. Dessert was flourless chocolate cake and carrot cake. We didn't want to leave. Check them out here!
Maggie's photography inspires me, too, but her girls' hair, fashions and makeup really get to me. Maggie's just got 'it' when it comes to doll collecting. I'm so glad to have a real-life Blythe friend here in Balto. And thanks to a resurgence of Blythe spirit, I stayed up until 3:30 a.m. staring at Blythe pics and fashions on Ebay, Etsy and TIB.
