mad for matryoshkas...

We are loving the recent revival for all things folk inspired, especially the matryoshka or babushka dolls, which has been reminding JJ and I of our childhoods (yep, both '70's children!) Mum (susieq) had a set of what we used to call Russian Dolls, and they were always a novelty to take apart. Following the trend, we decided to make some art featuring these gorgeous dolls, which we can't show you due to a camera cable that has decided to suddenly be difficult.


We also made these cute matryoshka tags in our vintage style, and these little decorations for some markets that we are taking part in leading up to Christmas.

For some absolutely gorgeous matryoshka soft dolls that would make  a little (or big) girl very happy, visit the lovely Ravenhill's Etsy shop and blog. We love her work.
