My Dream Catcher








I love putting projects like this together
It is like a relaxing puzzle.
Finding just the right little charm or vintage token to add to all these lace pieces and doilies is just how to spend a peaceful afternoon while the child of the house dreams away.

Adding pockets to catch the love letters in and using all my edgings from my grain sacks.
The grain sack selvedge dangles long and holds little items like vintage silver bells and buckles
beads with pearls and clips to hang other things on to it.
Old zippers that go no where but add a dream of it opening something beautiful.
Vintage keys and cabinet cards all on a vintage book cover from the 1800's that has amazing numbers and script embossed on the cover and the binding

This is going to my shop so if you are in love head over to grab it.
