Dream catchers, when hung close to where you sleep, are great for keeping the bad dreams away and the good dreams close. These dream catchers are handcrafted with willow tree branches from the backyard where I live, and feathers from my barnyard friends. They are full of prayers, and are one of a kind. As birds molt a couple of times a year, most of the feathers you see come from birds who are still alive and well. Plus, the pictures you see (unless otherwise indicated) are of the actual birds who have gifted you their feathers!
