Shabby Cottage Corner

This blank corner wall has been bugging me for a while now. I wasn't sure what I was going to put there to bring the level up to be close to the other side. It made Katie depressed too.

A few months ago I was playing around and ended up making kind of a free form Dream Catcher using a hanger as the base. I went outside and found a neat stick that I added diagonally.

Torn fabrics, yarn and ribbons coordinate in the same pastels.
Yeh, since we aren't receiving any rain I think I'm getting Spring Fever ;)

A few feathers from my sister's chickens were added here and 
there to add to the movement too.

I brought in my old vintage Screen Door from the farm and sandwiched part of it between the entertainment center and the wall.

I then hung the Dream Catcher on it.
The length stops right above my Grandmothers old bell I have under the cloche I made by turning a glass upside down and adding a marble to the top for the handle.  You can see an old photo I have of  a relatives farm that used to be here in the town I live in.

I hadn't realized how good it went with 
my Stained Glass Floor Lamp.

I like the way it turned out and can't wait until it warms up so I can open the window next to it and see it blow in the breeze.
Cost $0, I had or repurposed what I had.Yippee!

Yes, that is part of our Christmas Tree on the left of the photo.....it is finally down and put away!
