As a teen I got the opportunity to go to Russia (now the Ukraine) as part of a missions trip. That is where I bought this lovely lady. She's a bit faded and worn and someone lost her littlest doll, but I am so glad I have her.
Since that trip, the world has discovered matryoshkas and you can find them pretty much anywhere, but I still have it in my head that I can only get a "real" one if I go back to Russia. (I don't see that happening any time soon.) In the meantime, I am happy to have this little matryoshka on my tree to remind me of my childhood as well as my trip to the Ukraine.
