matryoshka tape

Like my beloved Hello Kitty, I fear that this theme might be becoming a little cliche, but I do so love matryoshka. We recently got a hand-painted wooden set from a Russian dealer at the fair, which we're saving for a Christmas present for someone--but what on earth was I thinking? I should have gotten a set for me, too!

What I did get recently for myself recently, however, is this fun set of deco tape as well as rubber stamps with nesting doll themes since the seller was doing a moving sale. So cute, and such a bargain! I can't wait to use them.

I'm not really a stamp collector, but I also really love the stamps from Japan that were on the package. Someone offered to send me the Wallace and Gromit Christmas stamps when they come out in the UK in November, which makes me really happy...between those and the Simpsons stamps and the Calvin and Hobbes stamps here in the U.S., my mailbox will be a lot of fun in the coming months.


  1. I'm jealous, that deco tape is awesome!

    I'm going to stock up on Wallace and Gromit stamps - so much more interesting than the normal ones for swapping.

  2. Love the Snoopy stamps! :)

  3. Aren't they fun? :) I actually bought them from Swap-Botter @marimekko at a pretty steep discount. She may have some left if you're interested...shipping from Japan only took 1 week to get to California!

  4. I purchased the deco tape set from Swap-bot user Marimekko. Her user profile is here:

    I think she's in the middle of moving, but you can try to set up a SB account and message her through that to see if she still has other sets available. Lots of Etsy sellers with matryoshka, of course, but these were a particularly good bargain!
