"Enchanting"

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.

"Heart Shape Makes it Perfect for Valentines Day"

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!

"The perfect gift!"

a long time ago a beautiful little girl was part of my life. Evey night when I tucked her in, Id put her worry dolls under her pillow. Although she is not a daily part of my life anymore, I knew when i saw this I had to get it. I was so happy she loved it. Thank you for this beautiful piece that allowed me to connect again with someone who meant so much to me.

"Granddaughter Took it to College"

This was a gift for my granddaughter about a year ago. She adored it and hung it on her wall above her bed. This year she went away to college and took this wreath with her! She said it made her feel loved. It now hangs on the door to her dorm room, and is a way to make friends for her since all the girls on her floor want to ask about it and comment how much they love it. It has become a way for her to show the kind of sweet person she is.

"This worry doll wreath will cheer me up!"

This worry doll wreath is very well made. And when I received it, it was very carefully wrapped so it was in great condition. I have some physical problems so the wreath will cheer me up whenever I look at it! Thankyou Elias!
