This is the dreamcatcher that Karen bought at the market the other day. As soon as she saw it she just had to have it.
She let me do my thing and take pictures of it.
I really liked the feathers on it.
You get so many textures and colours in them.
I don't know much about dreamcatchers so I decided to google it to see what I could find out.
One of the nicest things I found out was that they were made in ancient time by the Ojibwa people.
The grandparents made them out of twigs, sinews and feathers for newborn children and hung over their cradles so that they could have peaceful and beautiful dreams. Bad dreams cannot find their way through the web and are trapped there until the sun comes up and evaporates them like morning dew.
Isn't that just a lovely description.
There is no wonder they are so popular.
I might just have to buy one for myself - mind you I don't know how happy Danny would be with it hanging in the room!!!
