My Grandmother, always gave us acorns on Halloween with a sweet treat, I still have 2 of the acorns she gave me in my jewelry box, I bet they are close to 40 years old. One of my fondest memories on Halloween was the smell of burning leaves and the sound of the wind chimes at her house. At Christmas, someone in the family always gives someone a unique set of wind chimes.

Sully16, do you think that you may plant grandmother's acorns one day? 

Planting trees are wonderful gifts to the planet!  The abundance will multiply over and over again!

The planted seed / acorn grows another tree and that tree produces thousands of new

seeds / acorns for more trees and the cycle starts again.  Abundance!!! Sun Smiley

      Here is another idea, Sully16.  How about placing a plaque honoring

      your grandmother's memory on the tree that you may plant?

       

      Well not like these, of course.  You will know what to inscribe on the plaque!

       

      Later, I can see you putting a couple of chairs or a bench under that wonderful tree! It could become a quiet place to sit and meditate or work on your lottery numbers! Your grandmother's inspiration will be strong under that special tree! Sun SmileyBlue Angel

              18. Chimney Sweeps  806  146

              A Chimney Sweep is a sign of good luck, wealth and happiness.
              The Chimney Sweep is said to be "the ultimate bringer of good luck".
              One legend from old England says that one day King George was riding his horse in a royal procession, when a dog suddenly ran from the crowd, barking and nipping at the King's horse. The horse reared, and to the horror of the crowd, almost threw the King! A lone figure, dressed in rags and filthy, stepped into the road, caught the horse's halter and calmed the animal; a chimney sweep had saved the King!



              19. Buddha  419

              A Buddha charm or statue is thought of as being lucky, especially if you rub the Buddha's belly.

               


              20. Kachinas  290

              The Pueblo, Hopi and Zuni nations of the American Southwest, place great faith in the luck-bringing properties of these dolls.

              Kachinas represent native spirits and each is dressed in elaborate costume. Although regularly used in tribal ceremonies, these dolls, are also used as playthings by children and displayed in homes as well as in sacred places. It is believed that by making the spirit represented by the doll a member of the family group, luck will come to that family in the form of good harvests and protection from natural disasters.

                      Lucky Objects      Tokens of Luck

                       

                       
                       
                       
                      22. Dream Catchers  also Dreamcatchers  754
                      Dreamcatchers, from Native American culture, are considered good luck, because they catch the negative images from dreams. 

                       

                       
                      23. Red Chinese Lanterns  193  212
                      These Lanterns are a symbol of luck in the Chinese culture.

                       

                      24. Horseshoe  656
                      A Horseshoe symbolizes good luck, power of evil, good fortune and fertility.

                      Horseshoes have associations with the strength and dependability of the horse, and, in an upright position, it is also symbolic of the moon. Pointing downwards, it is symbolic of the womb. To the Greeks, it symbolized the crescent moon which was regarded as a symbol of fertility.

                      The Horseshoe protects one's house and land, to keep strangers away, when hung up on the wall of a home or above a doorway. The "U" shape will hold good luck inside forever. This tradition may stem from the 10th century Saint Dunstan. He trapped the devil using a Horseshoe and from that point on the devil would never enter a Christian home adorned with a Horseshoe over the door.

                      Some legends say, that a Horseshoe "'Pointing Up" will gather your Luck, whereas "Pointing Down" it will shower you with Luck.

                       

                      25. Coins  330
                      "See a penny pick it up and all day long you'll have good luck.
                      Leave it there and you'll despair."

                      Some even take the idea of luck to the other side of the coin, and believe that if the coin is face down that it's best to leave it on the ground. Luckiest of all, are Coins that are bent or have holes in them, especially if they turn up as change after making a purchase. The luck of such Coins is enhanced if they are carried in a left-hand pocket or worn around the neck.

                      Coins can bring luck in many ways.
                      - You will have good luck if you keep a jar of pennies in the kitchen.
                      - The first Coin you receive each day should be placed in an otherwise empty pocket and it will attract more.
                      - A Coin in a new jacket, handbag, or wallet will bring good luck.
                      - If you get pennies as change on a Monday, you will have good luck all week long.
                      - Many people consider it lucky to carry a Coin with their birth date.
                      - Some say that a Coin minted in a leap year will bring good fortune.

                      Coins also have a place in Feng Shui, as luck bringers.

                       

                      26. A Pot of Gold  110  123  727
                      A Pot of Gold is what you will find at the end of a Rainbow, making it doubly lucky.

                            27.  Nautical Star  139   141
                            The Nautical Star, or North Star, is seen as providing guidance, and it is a good luck symbol for sailors.

                            The Star of Bethlehem guided the three wise men; in the Old Testament, the starry sky symbolized the numerous children of Abraham, and gave direction to the promised land.

                             
                             
                            28. The Evil Eye  400
                            Unlike other sources of good-luck, where good fortune resides in the possession of the object itself, the power of the Evil Eye Amulet resides in its capacity to ward off the misfortune cast by the Evil Eye.

                             


                            29. The Number Seven  250   7
                            The number Seven is considered lucky by many different cultures and religions.

                            In Christianity-
                            Seven represents self-sacrifice and higher virtue. It appears repeatedly in Scripture in such things as the seven lamps of the temple, seven wise and seven foolish virgins, and Christ's feeding of the multitude with five loaves and two fishes. The early church taught that belief in God brings seven gifts: wisdom, understanding, honor, glory, blessings, strength, and godliness.

                            It is believed that the seventh son of a seventh son has the power of healing and that the seventh daughter of a seventh daughter has the gift of interpreting dreams.

                            In the mythology of Japan, there are also Seven Gods of Fortune.
