Did you know they’re not actually babushka dolls? I didn’t ’til I looked on Wikipedia, but still, my whole life appears to be lie now… ;P
Here they are, basking in the midmorning sun, happy to be out of the house for once. 🙂
Their vacuous eyes are a leeeetle creepy, and the smallest one just looks plain mad. 🙂

Maybe my idea isn’t as unique as I thought it was… 😛 Great work though, they look amazing!
Haha, thanks!! 😉
They’re called matryoshka dolls. I have several from when I lived in Russia one summer in college. I think the word means “little girl” or “little woman”. “Babuschka” is Russian for “grandmother”, so I suppose a matryoshka could also be a babuschka, but not always 🙂
Okay, cool! So much better hearing it from a real person rather than Wikipedia…now I know its true! (Assuming your info is correct, haha. 😛 )
I took Russian for years in school, I did, in fact know this. Beautiful picture!
I like this!!
Yay, I’m so glad. 🙂
very nice 😉
That small one does look peeved. But this is a wonderful shot, her grumpiness notwithstanding. 🙂
Well, gee, thanks! 😉
They are still cute though 🙂 Katie B @ Minerva Collection – UK Handbags & Jewellery
