The Five Fat Chicks Tota are handmade with patches of different fabric, beads, sequins, multicolored threads and a small goat bell. It owes its inspiration to the sound of goats as they graze in the villages of North India. The hens can be hung on a wall or over a door frame and are believed to bring good luck and prosperity. They can even hang from the Christmas tree during the holiday season!
Size: 20″ in length and the individual birds are 3.5″ wide.
A fashionable twist on an age-old tradition, the Moon Phase Dream Catcher will bring sweetness & light anytime!
Dream Catchers are often referred to as “Sacred Hoops.” They can be traced back to the Ojibwe Native American tribe where they were originally used as talismans to protect sleepers from bad dreams by holding the bad dreams in their web until morning. The strands that hang below take the good dreams and gently carry them down to the peaceful sleeper.

Hang these short length paper prayer flags anywhere. Made with sustainably harvested Himalayan lokta paper, a tree free eco paper fiber that grows in the higher hill areas of Nepal using 2,000-year-old techniques.
Prayer Flags are used to promote peace, compassion and wisdom. The wind blows the prayers though the universe and rains carry the prayers away to the earth.
The five colors of the flags represent the harmony of five elements in balance; blue=sky and space, white=air and wind, red=fire, green=water and yellow=earth.
Size: 2.5"sq flag x 13"l string
