Russian doll challenge
After doing my take on the Russian dolls I set you a challenge to have ago thanx for those that had the time to take part.
I receved this little snippet of information from a friend he just thought I should know....
Hi Chrissy just a small point.. I see the Babushka cards..
Babushka in Russian is "old woman" and is a little derogatory in its use. I think that you are referring to the Russian nesting dolls.. the Russian word is Matryoshka The word "Babooshka" doll appeared for a while because the word "matryona" is associated with a very large and fat Russian woman. Babooshka doll is rather a slang term for the nested doll and is not correct... wanting to put the record straight, with my new Russian connections, possibly you could tell the blog.... .... :-))))) There you have just told them yourself. LOL Thanks for the lesson :))
The 1st Russian doll ATC 'From Russia With Love'.... was sent by Sharron and she has a huge collection showing on her blog.
the music one is mine it just reminds me of someone special and so added my pic to it as well.
The two above are Terrie's you will always know Terries work by her use of stitching and staples, thanx so much Terrie, is the Top one a stamp? Guess who just had to have ago....yes, Dottie herself... I wonder if that message is for someone by the name of Sam!!
ok thats the first lot please just scroll down for some more.for some reason if you click onto the music one it will take you to sharrons blog...how clever am I?
