Everything inspiring

Casper, my dog loves camera :)

It has been really cold since morning. I did not do much today except spening some time in the garden with Casper, my dog. Sun was shining, though not very brightly as it was a little cloudy.

They were the colourful dreamcatchers hanging  at one of the many shops run by foreigners in the night market. I bought one with blue and pink feathers as it appeared more quainty to my eyes than others displayed in the shop.  Dreamcatchers were initially conceptualised by Native American people to filter good dreams from bad ones. These are made from leather, twine, feathers and a loop.  Here's the picture of my dreamcatcher.
