Need a Worry doll???

My older daughter got from her Grand-Grand mother something sooooo sweet and lovely.... And I love the purpose of it... And what are these Guatemalan Worry Dolls all about???
In the traditional lore of the Maya Indians of Guatemala: ''If you have worries, share them with your worry dolls. When you go to bed tell a worry to each doll, and then sleep with the dolls underneath your pillow. When you wake in the morning the dolls will have spirited your worries away.'' Isn't that sweet?!? And they are so so tiny and hand made... We love other traditions and cultures so I think that's perfect for my daughters!(But it's not for the children under 3 years!)

Tiny dolls and deep sleep,
