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.

"Beautiful Addition to my Decor"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love the idea of handing over my worries to a worry doll, so it is ideal to hand many worries over to many dolls. The piece is very well made, colorful and arrived safely packaged. I really like the detail, colors and fun this adds to my room..

"A Timely Reminder"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Covid-19 required us to make changes in our lives and one change was more uncertainty about the future. As we travel through this world it is easy to get caught up in the uncertainty and worry about the future, so I thought this heart worry doll wreath would help us remember that worries are not life giving. If we give up our worries and concentrate on the hope that lies within us we can traverse our journey with gratitude and anticipation. We love the heart shape of this wreath and the worry dolls remind us that worry is not our focus in life, it is blessing and giving life to others.

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.
