When I was small I remember going with my Mother to visit my Great Aunt Gert. There are two things from her house which I will always remember. The first is that she had a fish tank with sea horses swimming around inside. This was very magical to me then because sea horses were supposed to live far out in the ocean, and here were some right in her livingroom! Amazing!
The second thing I will always remember is her set of Russian Nesting Dolls, also called Matryoshka Dolls. I'm not sure exactly what attracted me to these dolls, but I recall sitting at my aunt's kitchen table and playing with them while everyone around me talked. I would take them all out and set them up from largest to smallest, put them all inside one another again, and start over. I probably did this for hours.
Ever since then I have been in love Matryoshka Dolls. I'm still not sure if it's because of the fact that there are many dolls all hidden inside the largest, the beautiful colors, or the happy little faces smiling at me, (most likely all three reasons!) but I just can't get enough of them. And lucky for me these dolls have become a trend. There are tons of items out there featuring these happy little dolls.
So this week my chosen theme is all about Matryoshka Dolls! Just take a look at the colorful, fun things you can find with these dolls! As usual all of the items are found on Etsy, but this week each one is handmade. All the photos have a number, and a direct link to each Etsy shop is listed below the collage if you'd like to pay them a visit!
Do you have a favorite item from this collection?
I really love them all, and couldn't choose just one!
Happy Friday :)
