dream catcher

My mini obsession lately has been different kinds of dream catchers. Just love the idea:

Dream catchers are one of the most fascinating traditions of Native Americans. The traditional dream catcher was intended to protect the sleeping individual from negative dreams, while letting positive dreams through. The positive dreams would slip through the hole in the center of the dream catcher, and glide down the feathers to the sleeping person below. The negative dreams would get caught up in the web, and expire when the first rays of the sun struck them.

Recently, I’ve come across some stunning dream catchers made with soaked and twisted branches. I wish I could find a large, hand-made one to hang over my bed.
