Modern Nesting Dolls :: Nushka

My fascination with nesting dolls started when I was a kid, after my brother spent a month in Russia and brought home a small suitcase-worth of intricately painted sets.  They instantly became cherished items and I've had a soft spot for matryoshka dolls of all types ever since.

These hand-painted nesting dolls from Australian designer Melissa Gardner offer a unique, modern twist that I simply adore!  From the super minimal white and wood Kiska Doll to the playful, mermaid-inspired Mjla set, I love each and every one.  (Another fave?  The gold and turquoise Jelena Doll, which happens to be the name of an old friend of mine. Yay!)  Check out more of Melissa's hand-crafted nesting dolls in her online shop Nushka!

Psst: Love a good nesting doll, too?  You won't want to miss these colorful, geometric dolls either!

[Thanks to Sarah for sending these my way! Oh, but you know me too well.]


Geometric Nesting Dolls :: Rebecca Kemp

These are, quite possibly, the coolest nesting dolls I've ever laid eyes on... they may even be the coolest nesting dolls in the history of nesting dolls...

I think it's safe to say that Rebecca Kemp just made my year.

Gilded Alphabet Set :: Cabin 7

Holy hot cakes of gold gilded awesomeness!!  I love this set of alphabet blocks from Cabin 7 so, SO much.  If you feel like dropping $260 on a set for me, go right on ahead... though I might attempt a DIY version somewhere down the line.  Hmm... the cogs are turning, people.  Watch out!
