Russian Tea

Cammerari Doodle

I’d like to believe this is a cute Russian soldier. When I was a wee lass, my grandmother would buy little Disney figurines for each new child that was born. She went through all of the seven dwarves with my older siblings. I’m the ninth child so she ran out of Disney figurine ideas and I ended up with this tiny Russian soldier with a heart on it’s sleeve. I’m not Russian but maybe I was in a past life or something. Anyway, I wish I knew what happened to it. So, this doodle sort of reminds me of what it looked like.

Speaking of all things Russian, I ventured out of Brooklyn yesterday to a place far, far away in the land of Manhattan. I went to the Russian Tea Room. See below…

My proof I was there. :)

No, that’s not tea (it came later, complete with sour cherries¬†to sweeten the tea). And no,¬†I did not create a doodle¬†on their napkin¬†so I really shouldn’t post this. They had cloth napkins. Fancy schmancy stuff! ¬†It’s not like it didn’t cross my mind though. However, since this IS a blog about doodling in Brooklyn. I managed to find one of their printed napkins and brought it back to Brooklyn for a future doodling date in the near future. Yes, you heard me. I actually looked for their napkins to bring home so I might have the PRIVILEGE of doodling on them. My commitment to napkin doodling knows no bounds. Russian Tea Room napkin coming soon!

I’m going to end this blog posting with a Happy Father’s Day! Here’s a tribute to all the cool dads out there. Click¬†HERE to see how¬†one dad that actually doodles all over his son’s lunch bags.¬† Keep doodling and share them with the world!

XOXO

  1. Everybody needs a hobby, a distraction that adds enjoyment to everyday life. Mine comes from photography. You may never see me without a camera, a real camera with changeable lenses, not a cellphone or tablet phone.

      1. Not if you know what to look for. My Fuji X-E 1 with an 18-55mm F/2.8-4 lens cost me $1300 when I bought it. Now it’s $700. They are literally giving you the body free with the purchase of a great lens.

      2. Someone told me to try to get a full framed camera. I was thinking of buying one used but I’m going to see what my professor says first. I’m so glad they are starting to go down in price though.

      3. If you’re thinking of getting a full framed camera it’s going to cost you a lot more than the cropped APS-C sensor camera. I owned a full frame Nikon D800 with the body alone costing $3000 and a 24-70mm F/2.8 lens selling for $1900. That’s $5000 by the time you put filters on the lens. The cropped sensor takes great photos at under $1000 with the equivalent 18-55mm lens. I can easily enlarge to 30″ x 20″ with my 16.1MP sensor. The D800 was a 36MP sensor. Good luck with whatever you choose.
