My Babushka Dolls

I've always wanted to have my own Babushka Dolls or more commonly known as Nesting Dolls. Another Russian term for it is "matryoshka". I personally prefer to call them Babushka Dolls.

They say Babushka Dolls are considered to be a symbol of motherhood and fertility. A mother doll with numerous dolls-children perfectly expresses the oldest symbol of human culture.

Authentic Babushka Dolls from Russia are quite expensive. Jules saw a nice version of it in a tiangge (thrift store) and bought it for me. I love it. He said he will buy me another one with a different design next time.

Thank you very much Jules. I appreciate it.
