I am here again… St Petersburg- probably my favourite city in the world. Beautiful, spacious, with a lot of canals, gorgeous architecture, museums, and luckily for me- fantastic weather!

This is my second stay in St Petersburg and both times the weather amazed me. After endless months of cold in England, Russia (not?) surprisingly welcomes me with warmth once more.

I have been kindly invited by Lidia Snul of BJtales to join one of the biggest doll exhibitions there are in the centre of St Petersburg. I have enjoyed it greatly, met other doll artists, collectors and doll enthusiasts. Wonderful experience.

The exhibition is open until the 3rd of June, so those working during the week can visit and enjoy this great event over the weekend.

I will post more photos soon but here a few for now, taken with my phone.
