Ghana in Our Home

I thought it was important to have some items from Ghana in our home. Here are the items I bought in Ghana to display.
Beautiful hand-made beads.
These dolls all are carrying a baby on their back. Women in Ghana sell things on the streets and usually carry their goods on their head.
This doll also has a baby on her back. Each of my girls have one wearing a different color of dress.
Cloth nativity set.
This nativity is carved out of a common wood in Ghana, although I don't remember the name of the wood.

A special thanks to Kathy who helped me in my shopping! She did such a great job. I especially LOVE the beads she picked out for me to make bracelets with!!!
