"Enchanting"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This wonderful heart is just breathtaking, for any time of year. I sent it to MYSELF, as I am a widow and felt sure my husband would want me to have it. ;-) Im so glad I did! It is hanging on my office wall, and I cant stop looking at it. The craftsmanship is superb. One small comment: it is smaller than I had anticipated, but thats fine. It is delicate, beautifully made, and perfect.

Since becoming a customer at Novica, I have become a fan of the charming Guatemalan Worry Dolls. So imagine how happy I was to discover that they are being crafted into wreaths by artisan Elias Garc?a. I immediately ordered this one and it hangs beside our front door to commemorate St. Valentines Day in February and love anytime. The bright, cheerful colors and the solemn little faces on this piece assure that I wont have a worry in the world this year!

"Cheerful"

Nothing prepared me for how bright and cheerful this is in person. Dear to note: the dolls all cross hands. It is light enough to be hung up with a pin or hang off a lamp knob. Thank you ??

"Beautiful Tradition"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I use this for display on the wall or as the base of a centerpiece. SO MANY COMPLIMENTS! My grandmother began my collection of Worry Dolls when I was a very young girl. At that time, the artisans sold their wares at church festivals. There were even some dancing performances by some of those who came to the church to sell their handmade !. Our church sponsored some of the missions, and we eagerly awaited their visits. .
