Guatemalan Worry Dolls

According to legend, Guatemalan children tell one worry to each doll, then they go to bed at night and place dolls under their pillow. In the morning the dolls have taken their worries away.

    My Great Grandma gave me these! I loved all-things-miniature, so they were a favourite.

    I’ve had a little box of them on my nightstand for years and years, but I’ve never actually told them my worries. I need to try it…maybe I’ll get some sleep! : )
