Amazing little folks
Never heard of worry dolls until my granddaughter told me about them. She wanted them for Christmas. I was amazed at the detail. She loves them. I just hope she doesn t have that many worries that she uses them all up! Beautiful craftsmanship
She is a lovely lady of many moods
I have had my Miss Bali for several years and it looks like she may have changed a Mine is beautiful and mysterious and by repositioning her I can get a whole new look. I applaud her maker for artistry and ingenuity!! Thank you for my friend.
