Well, actually I think maybe Babushkas are the new deer or the new birds, but you get my meaning. Woodland creatures could be on their way out. Wooden dolls, in! Babushka this, babushka that. I'm seeing these these traditional Russian nesting dolls everywhere! Even fashion mavens are learning to tie their very own babushka! I think it might be someones idea of peasant-chic and a modern take on the 'get back to handmade' that has become so popular.
