    Yes, a dream catcher. I've always had one in my car for when my kids were little and would fall asleep in the car. They slept easier thinking there was a catcher there to keep out any bad dreams. They're older now and rarely nap in the car, but it's become a family joke, so I keep it up there.

    No, I don't have anything hanging from my rear view mirror. I think it would bother me.

    I have a Swarovski heart pendant hanging from mine. So sparkly. :) My mother-in-law tells me that in VA, you aren't allowed to hang stuff from your rear view mirror. Or maybe she just meant sparkly things, like crystals.

    It's not really hanging, more like sitting on top, so I'm not sure if it counts. I have a little tiny stuffed tiger. Every vehicle needs a mascot. :)

    I have a little angel on a cloud. It was one of the last ornaments my nana gave me for Christmas. I call her my Nana Angel.

    Also a necklace that says 'Bailey'.

    I have a Swarovski tear drop pendant on mine.
    We have that law in Illinois. It's rarely used. Not too long ago there was an article in the paper about it.

    With Illinois being a broke ass state, I'm surprised they haven't used this as a revenue booster.

    My daughter has one over her bed, but it doesn't seem to help.

    I have a smaller mirror under the rear view, to see children in the back seats.

This is my 4th car so the heart has been in all of them.

    A stupid "new car scent" tree. After reading these posts.. now I want something better. Years ago my husband had these crystal balls in his car hanging from his rear view mirror when I met him.. I sure wish I knew where to find those again. I loved them.

    No. It's a hazard. And I find it really annoying.
    "And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
    Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."

    I'm a sucker for sparkly, shiny objects! It actually is against the law in some states to hang anything from the rear-view mirror--sparkly or not!

    Ahh, but nothing beats "new car scent!" But, if you want some sparkly crystal balls...Google them! I've had my string of beads for years, and I made it myself so I could get the colors I wanted.

    I used to have my tassel from my high school graduation hanging from the rearview, but I took it down after my friend got pulled over for the same. Now I just have one of those little paper flowers - you know, the little red ones sold by veterans? - tied around the base. That's too small for the cops to notice.

    This might be true for me, if I had ever given this idea any serious thought. Which I haven't.

    Do you find it annoying on Other-People's-Cars? Or only your own?

    I think the people who hang sparkly crystal things from their mirrors might be hazardous to other people. I've gotten hit in the eye from a stray crystal reflection occasionally.

    I hope you leave the window cracked for them in the summer heat. : )

    You aren't allowed to have anything hanging from your rearview mirror in PA (and I was pulled over for doing so many years ago). But I have always had something hanging from my mirror. Right now there is a silver chain about 6" long with shiny red and clear glass beads and a red glass heart at the bottom. My mom gave it to me and it's supposed to be lucky.

    --I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, started going grey in late 2005.
    --My hair is 3B with some 3A, texture-medium/fine, porosity-normal except for the ends which are porous, elasticity-normal.
    --My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, oils, honey, vinegar.

    We get 360 days a year with sunshine, so I find other people's sparkly danglies highly annoying and hazardous. I feel unsafe riding with anyone who has something large dangling, because it's blocking their view where they're supposed to be able to see.

    Small things don't bother me. I have a llama-hair llama which extends about a half inch below the bottom of the mirror on the back side of it (in my car). I was voted "most likely to breed llamas" in my high school year book, so a friend gave it to me as a joke. Nothing in my truck.


    (FYI: My friend who works at Ford claims "new car scent" is actually glue!)

    Yeah.. I do love that scent..love the car smelling fresh while driving! And thanks for the tip on the crystal balls. I make crafts myself.. I never even thought to make something for the rear view mirror..DUH!

    Certainly on my own, sometimes on someone else's car depending on what they have there. Sparkly crystal things would definitely annoy me.
