From Russia With Love

My aunt brought home a few souvenirs for me from a recent trip to Russia. The items included a traditional handcrafted watch with amber on the strap, a nice Matryoshka doll and a rosary bracelet (not from Russia but from Lourdes, France).
I have been fascinated with Matryoshka dolls ever since we got one from her when we were kids. I really hope to get the really big one when I visit Russia someday :)


  1. Hi!
    I love to see that amber watch! Is it a vintage watch or just a new handmade?

  2. hello lunaticg! this is a newly made watch but there are a lot of antique versions (nice but so expensive!) thanks for dropping by.

  3. what a precious watch! and the matryoshka doll is just adorable. really says "from russia with love!"
