Books and Babushkas

I love books. I especially love filling my shelves with great, inspiring creative books like this latest stack borrowed from the library. Some are new to me, and some are titles that I keep checking out, over and over again. Are you looking for some creative inspiration? Have a look at the titles in this collection. You won't be disappointed.

I had to show you my multi-national collection of babushka dolls (it started with the ones Suzie sent me from Germany). Here they are with the newest members from the Netherlands (thanks Nicolette!). My little doll family look very happy together.
Creative, inspiring books and sweet babushka dolls make me happy. Hope you're having a happy and creative day!

  8. What a group of cuties!! You've found a good library! Mine doesn't have nearly that good of a selection, and certainly not all at once!

  9. I LOVE these Russian dolls, and have always wanted to make them like you have here. About 20 years ago I took a thick muslin fabric, drew out a large Babushka doll outline, and then I embroidered the most special design and embroidered it in many colors. I gave this doll I stuffed to my cousin's daughter for a gift after my uncle died, and I have always wanted to make another one. I am again inspired by your dolls.
