I am passing on a tradition that began with my grandmother. She began a collection of Worry Dolls for me, with the advice that I let the dolls carry all of my worries. I am passing on the dolls and the advice to my own granddaughters. This beautiful piece is a source of strength as well as joy. Barbara McLoone

"Beautiful Tradition"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I use this for display on the wall or as the base of a centerpiece. SO MANY COMPLIMENTS! My grandmother began my collection of Worry Dolls when I was a very young girl. At that time, the artisans sold their wares at church festivals. There were even some dancing performances by some of those who came to the church to sell their handmade !. Our church sponsored some of the missions, and we eagerly awaited their visits. .

My friend bought me worry dolls a few years ago so when I saw this adorable wreath I knew exactly who to get it for. She loved it and has hung it in her newly painted home. Beautifully and meticulously crafted. The ribbon base is done so well.
