russian nesting dolls
I love these! I'd never owned any until a few months ago - I'd hankered after them for years, and it turned out my office is two minutes from a little store that sells nothing but these cute little things. They range in price from $35 to $400 for a set. I'm a bit obsessed, I now own three sets. The store is called Matryoshka, the Russian name for the dolls - it's derived from an affectionate name meaning 'fat old lady'! It's in the shopping centre in Darling Harbour in Sydney, just at the end of the Pyrmont Bridge.
