I heart Babushkas!

Since I remember myself I love Nesting dolls. As a little girl I used to play with them at my grandparents and other older relatives homes. They where always there, in different colors and sizes. I loved their texture, I loved their smell, they kept me busy for hours then and they keep me busy now. Today, I love them for being modest and shy, they represent for me my childhood, my roots, my family, far away places, a culture that I have never really knew and the love for crafting and the value of handmade items.

Happily, my daughter and my friend's daughter carry our Babushka's love on and collecting these wooden critters with love.
