For Christmas, I got K a book called Travels in Siberia by Ian Frazier. I am a big fan of giving--and receiving--books as gifts--and because I am a voracious reader but I never know what I will be in the mood for when I finish one book and visit my bookshelf to select the next one, I like to have multiple unread options to choose from. Anyway, I got him the book and I feel like I've been channeling Siberian style lately--probably due to the vast wasteland of a landscape that is Vermont in the wintertime.

I've always loved the idea and artistry of Matryoshka dolls (see the original set above), so I am delighted that they have passed into the realm of the trendy (as so many other forms of folk art before them). I found this necklace for some ridiculously insignificant amount at Forever 21 this weekend and had to have it. I also purchased a black faux-fur hat much like this one, but when I found the grey version at H&M I returned the black right away (especially since this one fits my large head much more comfortably). I think I look a bit like a nesting doll in this getup, and it is as if the miniature Matryoshka around my neck is the nugget inside my outer layers.
