5 March: Russian Matryoshka Dolls

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. 🙂

  1. 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 🙂
