A Russian Invasion!!

I am obsessed with foreign and handmade dolls these days. I have been staring and staring at different templates to make a rag doll for AJ but haven't mustered up the courage to have a go at any of them yet. For now I am content to paint Kokeshi dolls and mini dolls for my girls, but I think my next challenge is going to be Matryoshka dolls- Russian Nesting Dolls! These dolls seem to be a popular theme right now on Etsy so I am going to share some of my favorite works. (Just click on a pic to go to the seller!!








And if you don't want to buy some finished dolls, you can paint your own at Romp!!

They certainly do seem to be the thing of the moment. They are adorable so easy to see why! Great picks! Thanks for including my hair slides/bobby pins. Lou.

Yeah, I heard on one of the "shop live" events (during the holidays) That they are going to be the new owl! So funny.
