When I was little, I was fascinated with a Matryoshka set my late aunt had that was a gift from her Russian pen pal. How I loved those Russian nesting dolls! The tiniest doll was the size of a peanut! They amused me for hours and I would stack and unstack them, wishing secretly that someday my aunt would bequeath them to me. She didn't! Sadly, no one knows until today where the dolls are. My aunt was single and didn't have any children.
Those are so cute!! My husband visited Baku and brought back authentic Russian nesting dolls for our girls. They were a favorite for a long, long time!ReplyDelete
Isn't it funny what you treasure from your childhood? So sad that she didn't know to leave them to you. :(ReplyDelete
oh i love those! so prettyReplyDelete
Those are so cute! I too wonder what happened to your aunt's nesting dolls; I always enjoyed the ones we had :)ReplyDelete
Your edible Matryoshka are just beautiful, Veronica. I have some that my mum gave to me when I was three and I've always treasured them. Unfortunately, I let my baby girl play with them when she was too young and now the smallest two are broken, but I plan to superglue tem back to their former glory very soon :) How cook that your aunt had a pen pal in Russia!ReplyDelete

Aww, I'm sorry you didn't get the dolls. My husband recently had a dream we were visiting Russia. :)ReplyDelete
I have a set of the dolls myself. I love them, and these cookies. They are so cute!ReplyDelete

To visit Russia would be a grand experience.
