"Quitapenas Happiness"

I love my new wreath. I participated in a volunteer effort in Guatemala several years ago and have a soft spot for people in this beautiful but troubled country. This wreath brings back so many good memories of the wonderful people there that I met.

I gave one to my boss and he hung it in the office. The colorful dolls make people smile. We are currently raising money for our Red Nose Day charity, so the little red noses are so perfect.

"My favorite gift for both family and friends"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I LOVE Worry Dolls! They are part of my history with my grandmother. Her church supported some of the missions where the Worry Dolls were made. Occasionally, there would be a Fiesta with dancing from Native Countries and a Special Market. She was able to buy Worry Dolls then. The message of Give your worries to God, He will be up all night anyway! is inherent in the message of the Worry Dolls: This wreath looks beautiful anywhere!

My granddaughter loved this heart wreath. I gave it to her during the pandemic at Valentines Day. It was wrapped beautifully and came with an extra worry doll on the bow on the package. This piece is exquisite and now adorns the wall in my granddaughters bedroom year round.
