Worry doll wreath
This wreath is beautiful and so well-made. I bought it to replace a wreath I had bought on a trip to Guatemala many years ago. The heart shape is adorable and the worry dolls are so cute. I love what they symbolize. Every time I look at this wreath, I smile. No worries!
I love the theme and they are beautifully constructed. I am in the process of sending them to my most favorite people! Highly recommend. They are worth framing! Thanks Novica!
Excellent and adorable!
I love these worry dolls. There were an excellent value and I am giving (some of them) as gifts to my closest friends during this horrendous virus pandemic. Definitely recommend them. They are quality and beautiful!
