Top 2 Tuesday: Things You Collect


Top 2 Things You Collect


1. Matryoshka "Russian" dolls: A matryoshka doll, or babushka doll is a Russian nesting doll which is a set of dolls of decreasing sizes placed one inside the other. I've loved these little dolls since I was a child. I only have about six of them, but I'd like to collect more. I've been fortunate enough to get some of them while traveling overseas, but I've never actually gotten one from Russia.

2. Hallmark Keepsake Eskimos: Every year, I have to have the little Eskimo Hallmark ornament for my Christmas tree. These have always been my favorite ornaments and I always order one. I have a mini-white tree and I'm trying to get enough of these to fill up the entire tree and then it'd be my Eskimo Christmas tree. :)

What do you collect? Visit The Undomestic Momma and tell us!

Oh my gosh! I've always wanted to start collecting those dolls. At this point though, I'm afraid I'm one collection away from being on hoarders.

The Eskimos are cute! I've never heard of those dolls before, but they're a cute idea. If I ever go to Russia, I'll grab a set for you. :)

My sister collects Russian dolls as well! Any time a family member is travelling, they always try to find one for her so she has several from all over the world.
