Setting up Home: Superstitions

When you move into a new home, do you have any superstitious tokens or practices to bring good luck during your time there? I spotted a horseshoe hung over the window in the basement of my new home and it got me thinking about this.

When the owners of this shed (pictured above) at Permit the Frog finished fixing it up, their last step was to hang a horseshoe over the door.

When I moved into my first apartment, my sister gave me a small fabric figure that was to hang over the front door to bring good fortune to those who enter. I used it for years through a few different apartments.

What superstitions do you follow to bring a good vibe into the place where you live?
