Anyhoodle, my mother gave me a set of these dolls for Christmas. I was just like the proverbial kid who gets the most amazing toy and plays with the box instead. What can I say--I was probably a deprived child. No, I wasn't. I'm just a nerd. Our tree is still up and I wanted to play with blurry backgrounds and I didn't want to wait until the weekend for sunlight to take these photos because it's supposed to snow anyway so the light wouldn't have been that great so that's why they're kind of low-lit, but I like how they look with the colored orbs in the background anyway. Got that?
So not only are they nesting dolls, they're nesting dolls who are yarn-crafting. Come. On. Adorable!!!
As if that's not enough...I returned to work on Monday from my long vacation. My friend tells me she has a surprise to give me at lunch. I go downstairs and she's telling me that I'll never guess what it is. She was right--I thought she found some novelty fabric or candy or something, but nope. Turns out SHE went to the Village with her husband and bought me a set, too!
And is there anything cuter than a penguin? Other than my dog, of course...and my nephew.
It's like my own weirdo version of The Brady Bunch:
And if the kids get out of hand you just...take off your head and put them all inside. Easy clean-up!
Now I can officially say I collect these. Because I bought this one on my mountain trip in the summer:
These definitely do NOT have the craftsmanship of the others but they're still cute.
I fight with myself to not stock up on these (I'm trying to decrease my stash):
