Babushkas: Living in Colour

January 24, 2011

I received a little treat in my mailbox last week. My friend Celina in Poland sent me these sweet little handmade babushkas (aka Matryoshka, russian nesting dolls). Slowly but surely, Celina is building up my collection of colourful miniature babushkas (thank you!).

    I would love to collect them but I’m trying to de-clutter, so that means no collections pour moi.

    But I could definitely use that babushka ring! I had no idea that babushkas are everywhere right now- somehow I must have been blind to their world domination :). I love them- they are such happy little figurines- a perfect start to Monday!
