With love from Russia

Did I show this little gift to you? This is a gift from Divya Nair, my ex-colleague and the ‘soon-to-be-the-next-prime-minister” of India. A nesting doll from Russia. They are known as matryoshka dolls. Mine is a set of 5.

The word matryoshka (матрёшка) came from the Russian female first name Matryona. They are also known as babushka dolls which in Russian means grandmother!

  1. I’ve been to Russia twice and have brought back several of these. One of them has all the Russian / Societ leaders nested inside from Peter the Great to Boris Yeltsin. The others are the usual female versions. I love them all!
    I have an award for you. It’s here: http://postcardsfromwildwood.wordpress.com/2010/10/29/life-is-good/
    If you want to participate in awards just put it in your sidebar, and pass it on when you’re ready. If you don’t, no worries. I enjoy giving them (and receiving them, of course!) but not everyone does, and I make no demands. I chose you for this one because of the energy you bring to your life to celebrate the days.
    Have a lovely weekend,
    Janice.

    • Hi Janice,
      Thank You so much for passing the award. I shall certainly put it in my side bar.

      About the dolls, lucky you! I saw some of them in the internet and found some really great ones.
