Sorry I have been missing from the posting frenzy lately! I am enjoying some time with my husband (R) before he goes back to Russia (in less then two weeks). I thought I would share some of the treasures he brought back from his first trip.
Could any Hockey fan not buy a handpainted matryoshka of their favourite team? Not likely! I'm surprised he only came back with one set...
The handmade flower is from Maslaneetsa - an annual festival to welcome Spring. It fared pretty well on the 30 hour journey home.
The yarn is from a small shop in Zeleznogorsk. R tells quite the tale of long dark hallways travelled to find me yarn.
R also came home speaking words from a new language and is teaching us a little every day.
