So without further adieu here is my 11th trinket.
2010 – Russia – Babushka
This Russian nesting doll, babushka or matryoshka doll was bought in a small street market near the Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood. It is hand painted and the reason I love it is every place painted on the doll is a place we visited. It was one of those trinkets I spotted but initially balked at the cost. However I kept coming back to it. I decided to splurge and it still gives me enjoyment and happy memories every time I see it. No regrets!

Beautiful Matryoshka dolls, Leanne. Sadly, nowadays, they are all mass produced in China, then sent across to Russia to be sold.
Yes I have a set of those too. But these ones are my favourite.

These are beautiful Leanne – worth every Ruble!
Leanne, our younger daughter loves these and we’ve gotten her a number of them over the years as Christmas gifts. None, however, were from a place we visited.
There is something fascinating about them. I a have a small el cheapo set of a Japanese doll in kimono.
