      I love this! I have the fish and I like the symbolism, but I especially love that this adds some color to my home office. It's one of the first things I see when I enter and it makes me smile. I will probably be buying the other animals as well. I would recommend this and think these would be a great gift.

      Comments about : Prosperity String:

      These cheerful "properity" strings can be used for decoration almost anywhere, either in a permanent place or brought out for parties. They can also be used to tie a gift--make two gifts!--or as a garland. They may almost be too cheerful for some people ;~). That they are made from old sari material is such a delightful manner of upcycling.

      I purchased one for a gift, and one for myself!

      I bought the chicken one first and then ordered the turtle and fish. I like them all but the fish are bigger individually so like the chicken and turtle the best. good for gift or for children's room. I have mine by front door.
