Have you ever had a souvenir that you just Love? In 1994 I took a trip to Finland to visit my sister and her husband, a Finish native. Since we took the long trek there we decided to make a stop in Russia at the same time. While in St. Petersburg we picked up a souvenir or two. Mine was this adorable little Babushka or set of Russian nesting dolls (also referred to as Matryoshka dolls).
I remember seeing hundreds of designs, but this one really resonated with me. It is a small set, with only five dolls. And it has a traditional wood shape.
The bright fun colors that I was drawn to back then works perfect with my basement decor today. Don’t you love it when things come together like that?
The clean simple paint is almost Swiss Chalet style. I haven’t seen another like it.
I love my little babushka!
