Matroshka / Russian Nested Dolls

Today's theme is... matryoshka dolls!! Is anyone of you Here Comes the Sun readers from Russia? Oh, hello there! I would really love to visit your country someday, I think Russian art is sooo beautiful and inspiring!

Chanel video created for Neiman Marcus. Isn't it adorable?

M-Cups matryoshkas measurement cups by Carl Mistch, Fred Studio. If I buy them I would probably just use them as a decoration rather than in the kitchen!

Some of Irina Troitskaya's matryoshkas collection. Brilliant!

    I had a set of vintage matryoshka dolls growing up and every once in a while I think of them and wonder where they've disappeared to. Additionally, I discovered an artist recently that has put her art on matryoshka dolls. I think they're so cute! Check them out here!
