    tiny, the bells look cute. Is it to be put in windows or hanged by the ceiling ? or maybe it will be dangling by the wind ? :) sorry for asking so much, i’ve never seen anything like that before.

    Oh, as the travel guider’s saying, all your ideas are all right. :)

    you just need put them at a good place in your home, or you can simplely hang it over your bag. It will bring good luck to you!
