|Gone, still here, gone, gone (Jasmine at various stages of development)|
Three of my four Jasmine dolls by Waltraud Hanl have found new homes. Jasmine at 1-1/2, pictured above, third from left, departed yesterday. She is now on her way to Guadeloupe* in the French Caribbean and is estimated to arrive by July 25th.

Jasmine was purchased in 2005 from one of the vendors at the 18th International Black Doll Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She was one of two dolls purchased while in Philadelphia that weekend as souvenirs. I hesitated to sell her for this reason, but I need space. Some of my larger dolls will be adopted out for this reason. I will have the above photos and other memories of Jasmine's presence here. I hope she is well loved in her new home in the Caribbean.
Three down, one more to go.
