Babushkas or Matryoshkas

Babushkas or Matryoshkas are also known as Russian nesting dolls, and they are sets of wooden dolls of decreasing size placed one inside the other.

I bought this set in Ukraine during a trip five years ago, and I liked the fact that they were in neutral colors instead of the very vibrant ones, so these ones would match my decor.

Thanks so much for your wonderful comments and FAVs. I really appreciate them.
Wow...love the lineup every last one..beautifully captured!

Love this shot and knew it was yours right away. Have you posted them before or just maybe looks like something you may have. Love this shot, the reflections and the way you lined them up, Ana. FAV

@darsphotos Thanks a lot, Darlene. Yes, you have good memory... I did something with them at the very beginning of my project, three years ago. I love them. Today it was a hectic day with doctors, and I didn't have much time outside, so I ended up looking for something inside the house after dinner.

@anazad511 It is funny what I remember and what i forget. They just remind me of you or of your traveling. I hope all is going ok for Jeff and know how hectic it can be. Thoughts and prayers remain for him to heal fast even though I do not mention it every day.

@darsphotos Thanks Darlene for your good wishes. I also don't want to mention it everyday, so people don't get tired. The doctor removed the staples of the incision; plus the regular treatment, and tomorrow he has a new MRI and X-rays. We bought a new bed and a new recliner to fit his needs, so at least something exciting in our lives.

Gorgeous POV and love how this draws you in!

@anazad511 I understand though you are living it every day along with Jeff. I bet he feels a lot better without the staples in, have had those a few times myself. I hope the MRI and x-rays come out with much improvement. I am glad you are making him comfortable at home too. We bought an electric bed a few years ago as I have issues breathing since I had a Pulmonary Embolism in 2006 and it helps my neck as well from an old neck injury. We bought a sectional sofa several years ago and I have a rocking chair that we bought then for me. It is very comfortable. Take care.

Incredible picture. Congratulations on making the Trending Page. Well deserved.

Lovely composition and curved reflections. I am smiling because I ended up looking around the house for something, too - although not for the same reasons. It sounds hectic and stressful, but hoping that Jeff continues to mend.

Super dof! Beautiful dolls.

Beautiful arrangement and choice of DOF! I've only seen the wildly colorful ones painted on wood ( I have a set). These are nicer and more unusual.

These are lovely. Love these little nesting dolls. We bought a couple in Petropavlovsk several years ago and another two, a bit different style, when back in Russia last year.
