I collect Dream Catchers
I also like windchimes,

I love Dream Catchers too, and wind chimes..  Don't have any DC's now, but I love the sound of chimes. Especially the little glass ones we used to get in the Chinese store.

I heard if you have wind chimes near your door way it brings in wealth.  I am not sure if it is a wealth of happiness, peace, love, or all of the above.  I have one of horses in my front yard, one set of chimes above my pond and one on the back porch by the yard.  I love to hear them chime even when I am trying to sleep.
We have dream catchers in all the bedrooms too since DH is Native American and we believe in what they do.

I have a set of windchimes outside my bedroom window. They only chime with a north wind. I love to wake up and hear them because that means the heat of summer is coming to a close, though we've had a very mild summer this year with all the rain. Last year at this time we had already had over 10 days over 100!

I want a mild summer.  Actually at the beginning of our monsoon season (rainy season) we have had cold fronts.  Temps have been under 100s for a few days in a row.
Wind chimes are like aquariums, they can be very relaxing.  Aquariums are relaxing to watch, and windchimes are relaxing to hear.  Maybe we need to set up aquariums with wind chimes above them. huh?

I don't collect anything in particular now because my kids tend to take things over.  When I was younger, I had a lot of different things I collected:  teddy bears, masks (like from Mardi Gras types), Beanie Babies...Now not anything in particular.

I have windchimes outside too, front and back, I love to hear them as I go to sleep on a cool night with a breeze blowing.

As far as windchimes by the front door bringing wealth, the only wealth I have, is the love of some very wonderful beautiful furbabies Heart woof.....huh....wonder would I trade that for wealth?

Nope..love them furbabies way too much, Roll Eyes even more than money  cheeky

I am not Native American, but I love things made by them, and I do believe too, that is why I named DC that, he was my biggest life long dream!!  luvsmile

That is so cool.  I love DC's name. My sister who has no Native Amer. in her either makes dream catchers.  She actually made ours.  She also draws excellent chalk drawings of Native Amer. women and elder men.  I am the only one to marry an Indian.  My kids are the only ones in the family to be our blood and Indian blood.  Unfortunately DH was not raised by his culture, but the history of his ancestors is super interesting to me. 
I also believe in the luck of horse shoes above your door way.  My mom always believed that, we have always had horseshoes in our house and we do now.  In my house we have horse shoes, dream catchers, and crosses.  We have a combination of beliefs in here.  That is the way I like it.  Not one way, but many.
