Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside a Dolls' Nest

Inside?  Matryoshka nesting dolls are my inspiration for this Weekly Challenge (I am excited — I just might have more than one post again!)

“The first Russian nested doll set was carved in 1890 by Vasily Zvyozdochkin from a design by Sergey Malyutin.” The art of making these Russian souvenir dolls has been around for over a century. They are hand-painted in such wonderful colors … that I have decided to also include it as a post for the multi-colored travel photo challenge.

My set was given to me by my friend Sylvia from one of her trips to Russia. My “girls” sit with me at my new home. Love you, girls!
