Ridiculous Russian Doll Situation

Postby indigo_jones » Wed Jul 18, 2007 10:07 pm

One of the indie seller blogs I read had a whole post devoted to Russian dolls today! I like to think that at least one of these creative people was inspired by "the ridiculous Russian doll situation" comment. ;) I need to sell some more of my own stuff so I can afford both the Russian doll t-shirt and one (or more) WTF! shirts.

Speaking of ridiculous Russian dolls. Or not, actually. We have these frogs which behave the same way that we probably got from the National Geographic store or something like that. My little cousin loves them, even if he hasn't quite mastered the ability to put them together the right way (I think that's probably when he'll decide they aren't all that interesting).

They so remind me of when I was little and was probably just as fascinated by them.

I bought some a Russian doll set in Russia last year. I was in the little shop, looking at a set that was actually behind glass. When I tried to open them, they were stuck!! The little woman behind the counter took it back, and then cracked it like an egg on the counter. Which didn't work. She ended up putting all of her body weight on it and rolling it back and forth like peeling a hard-boiled egg. Apparently, this is a common occurence from the paint, but it shocked the hell out of me!

I still bought them though.

That story made me laugh too. :lol: My piano teacher had a few sets of russian dolls in his office when I was younger, and I wasn't really supposed to play with them but I did anyways. I don't know why they amused me so much but, simple minds-simple pleasures. :wink:
