Madelon's Russian Nesting Doll Souvenir

Madelon went to  the National Gallery of Art in DC to see an exhibit on the Ballet Russe, its costumes and art last summer. With the up coming Olympics in a few weeks Madelon shares her fun find!

The gift shop sold this matryoshka doll as a keychain.

With the Olympics taking place in Sochi Russia coming up I noticed that some of the souvenir pins show nesting dolls.
 Nesting dolls each tell a story. You can find out more about Russian Nesting Dolls by clicking here.

  1. Great post! I was not aware of the nesting doll pin. I will try to get one. I purchased the Sochi nesting doll set from the Bay.
