Rearview Mirror Ornaments

You can tell a lot about a person by what’s hanging from their rearview mirror.

I’ve seen fuzzy dice, baby shoes and those pine tree shaped air fresheners.

A turquoise blue dream catcher made by Navajo women hangs from mine, even though I don’t sleep in my car. Maybe I’m trying to hold onto my dreams.

For those of you who don’t know, a dream catcher is supposed to be hung near your bed to catch bad dreams before they disturb your sleep. I don’t have nightmares so maybe it’s working even though it’s in the garage.

I used to have a little piglet (from Winnie the Pooh) hanging with an umbrella on my mirror. My daughter was a fan of the little pink guy and I thought he was pretty cute too.

My daughter now has a jade Chinese zodiac of a dog with beads and other pretties in her car.


Some cars have crystals that catch the light. These seem a bit dangerous to me because it could blind someone and cause an accident.

There are mirrors sporting Mardi Gras bead necklaces and feathery boas. I’m guessing those are sexy cars.

I’ve seen handcuffs. Not sure if they are part of law enforcement or into BDSM.

Prayer beads and crosses are helping keep some drivers safe or at least they must think so. I saw in a catalog angels that serve this same purpose; couldn’t hurt.

Not sure when decorating our car’s mirror first happened but I’m going to guess when women started driving. If a lady owns something she’s going to dress it up and make it pretty, we can’t help it we have this nesting thing inside us that has to fix up whatever we own or use.

What’s hanging from your rearview mirror?

I forgot the graduation tassels. Yes, I've seen that too, DIY.

Mentalist, I did mention that one. They have a dual purpose, making things smell better and that cute little tree.

Twilight you are smart not to have anything. Some of them get in the way.

Pagelift, I love the dice. Those are the first ones I remember ever seeing. My uncle had a set hanging from his 57 Chevy.

I hate driving a car with anything hanging from the rearview.

When I was a kid, I had a huge pair of fuzzy dice hanging from the rearview and blocking my view. Because of that, I failed to see a kid in the crosswalk, and would have run him over had my passenger not shouted a warning.

Now my cars are bauble-free.

Some are too big and obstruct our view. Those are a bad idea. I can see around my dream catcher without any problem.

I'm just paranoid.

My wife has a small cross hanging from the rearview, but like your dream catcher, it's too small to actually block anything.

(But I still don't like it.)

Fun Hub, BTW!

You sound like my husband. He doesn't like any fluff in his car either.

Thanks.
