I retired in 2005 after dealing blackjack and roulette in Las Vegas casinos for almost 20 years. I have one daughter and one grand-daughter who introduced me to altered art after my retirement. I was born in Iowa and grew up on a farm. I began the Memoirs of a Wildrose blog in the form of letters to my daughter to share information with her about family heirlooms and family history, plus remembrances of today, yesterday and yesteryear ! "Book of Douglas" blog is the story of my late husband, his life as I knew him, and our journey through life together. Ginny's Art blog was created to provide myself a record of my artsy creations.
Hilery made these Dream Catchers for her Grandpa and me "many moons" ago. They have hung on each side of our bed from the day we received them. Along with them, hang our little "totem bags".
The black Dream Catcher, of course, is Grandpa's, the off white one is mine. Indian lore tells that Dream Catchers will scare away all bad dreams. It seems when I sleep on your Dad's "side" of the bed, he will visit me quite often in my dreams.
