This photo taken by my late Mum in London during our 2007 holiday sprang immediately to mind when I saw the subject. I think I can count 31 in the photo, though there could have been more. Matryoshkas were a favourite of Mum’s. She had cushion covers, made patchwork wall hangings, had matryoshka measuring cups, fridge magnets and many other things apart from the dolls themselves. If she’d had the space and the money I’m sure she would have bought this set. I also have many sets including dogs and Santas. My favourite is one that Mum bought me. The largest one is so small that you’d never believe there were another 9 inside it.
