Things I Love...Matryoshkas

I have long loved matryoshkas (or babushkas as they are often called in Australia), a love which I seem to have passed on to the two cheeky monkeys.  It started when I was a small child, fascinated by the doll within a doll within a doll format of the traditional matryoshka or Russina nesting dolls.  And since joining the online creative world, I have discovered many adorable variations of the matryoshka design, inclucing these sweet embroidery hoop art from Sew Faithful.  Do you love matryoshka dolls or designs?  And if you do, how were you introduced to these cute dolls?


  1. Deb! Thanks for sharing your passion for the matryoshkas. There is something about them that draws you in to their cute little world. I know a store that sells all kinds of sets, and am always amazed at the detail and unique assortment. I can't say I own any though-just one set that are actually nesting Santa Claus dolls :)

  2. I had the nesting dolls when I was a child. I wish I still had them. They were so much fun and beautiful.

    I LOVE sewfaithful's shop. She does beautiful work.



I love finding out what my readers think, so thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
