I am a Russian Doll

I purchased these for me my daughter as a Xmas present.  When I was testing them out earlier (ok I was playing with them) I thought they were very symbolic of my 1970's diet.  I had these as a child, my name is Natasha (good solid Russian name) and I do kind of resemble the doll at the back - give or take the neck scarf. The blusher is a bit heavier than I would normally go for - she does look a bit like Aunt Sally out of Worzel Gummidge (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Worzel_Gummidge). I am hoping I will be more like the doll on the right in a month or so. I think I may need to be hospitalised if I ever look like the doll at the front.

  3. I’m sure your daughter appreciates the sweet gesture, especially if this gesture is a unique and beautiful set of nesting dolls. Matryoshka dolls or nesting dolls have been around for more than one century. But it never fails to captivate kids and adults alike even today.
