Matryoshka Mondays!

Posted on July 27th, 2009 by annakjarzab

Because apparently I’m now one of those crazy ladies with a creepy obssession, I came up with this really rather unnecessary idea to do Matryoshka Mondays which are basically posts put up on Monday (which I’m sure you gathered) with some sort of matryoshka item of interest (probably just to me)–from my growing collection, or just something I found on the Internet. Eventually, once I get my life sorted, these will probably involve a book giveaway, because I have a LOT of books and a teeny, tiny New York apartment with very little room in it. But that will have to wait. Today, it’s just this:

I found this print on Etsy, in the AutumnAndEve shop. It’s adorable, and only $14.99, but come on, I cannot just pounce on every single matryoshka related item on God’s green goodness. Save some water for the fish, as they say. So I refrained…for now. I did just buy a matryoshka print after all. I couldn’t resist, I thought it was too too funny:

In other news, I finally got home last night around 1:30 AM, after being delayed for almost two hours in Oakland (this is what I get for bragging that all my flights had been on time or early this entire year) and being put into a holding pattern at JFK because of the weather. Apparently there were huge thunderstorms or somesuch? I did see lightning from the plane, which is of course terrifying. But all was well, I landed safe and sound, the taxi line was long but not ridiculously so, and I gobbled up some mac and cheese and fell dead asleep.

Maggie’s wedding was awesome–very laid back and sweet–and I’ll be sure to post pictures soon, but until then…enjoy the matryoshki.

1) The storms last night were INSANE. I thought our windows would break.

2) You are getting a surprise on Monday that will totally make next week’s Matryoshka post a snap.

Who loves ya, baby?
