Pagoda with Buddha bell
This is The Eastern gift bell that I've got from my love in 2009

big bells are decorated with The Chinese god of wealth Tsai Shen Yeh 
Tsai Shen Yeh is a Chinese god of wealth which is often also called Lu Shing or The Star God of Wealth. This God can be seen in many Chinese and oriental houses and buildings, most of the times near their entrances helping them attract wealth and prosperity to those places as well as acting as a protection to their environments and the income which comes to them. Due to its quality of being a god of wealth, Tsai Shen Yeh can be a great help if you wish to have a better income or attract prosperity into your life. This way, you can improve your money income by placing it at your house or business entrance as well as at strategic spots such as the prosperity bagua map area. If you are wishing to become more prosperous in a specific life area, you can place a Tsai Shen Yeh at the spot which corresponds to such area according to the bagua map and its indications. This way, you can enhance that specific life area through the symbolism of prosperity which this item has. Such symbolism is not limited to money related matters, but to well being in all life aspects. If you want to enhance the wealth in general within your house and for all those who inhabit it, you can do so by placing a Tsai Shen Yeh near the entrance and towards the main door. This way, Tsai Shen Yeh would help you attracting wealth symbolizing the way it would enter through your main door. Sometimes, Tsai Shen Yeh is depicted holding a sword and sitting on a tiger's back. Whenever it is represented this way, it is called Ruyi and symbolizes protection and fight against evil besides the wealth and prosperity symbolism which Tsai Shen Yeh involves. If you acquire this item instead the regular Tsai Shen Yeh, you can also place it near your house entrance at a spot where he can watch the main door and look after your house by fighting any bad forces which might wish to enter.

Small Bell Kwan-Yin
Letitia is the name of my sister an I named it in she's memory.
This is the first bell I started my collection with as a gift from her.
On the bell you can see The Divine Goddess Kwan Yin
Legends of the Mahayana School of Buddhism recount that Kwan Yin was 'born' from a ray of white light which The Amitabha Buddha emitted from his right eye while he was deep in spiritual ecstasy.

Kwan Yin is regarded as an emanation of The Amitabha Buddha and as anembodiment of compassion, the quality which Amitabha himself embodies in the highest sense.

Many figures of Kwan Yin can be identified by the presence of a small image of Amitabha in her crown. It is believed that as the merciful Kwan Yin expresses Amitabha's compassion in a more direct and personal way and prayers to her are answered more quickly.

The paintings of Kwan Yin depict her in many forms, each one revealing a unique aspect of her merciful presence. As the sublime Goddess of Mercy whose beauty, grace and compassion have come to represent the ideal of womanhood in the East, she is frequently portrayed as a slender woman in flowing white robes who carries in her left hand a white lotus, symbol of purity. Ornaments may adorn her form, symbolizing her attainment as a bodhisattva, or she may be pictured without them as a sign of her great virtue.

Kwan Yin's presence is widespread through her images as the "bestower of children" which are found in homes and temples. She is one of the most beautiful of all the goddesses. She is often depicted seated upon a lotus or carrying a lotus.

Kwan Yin is also known as patron bodhisattva of P'u-t'o Shan, mistress of the Southern Sea and patroness of fishermen. As such she is shown crossing the sea seated or standing on a lotus or with her feet on the head of a dragon.

Symbols characteristically associated with Kwan Yin are a willow branch, with which she sprinkles the divine nectar of life; a precious vase symbolizing the nectar of compassion and wisdom, the hallmarks of a bodhisattva; a dove, representing fecundity; a book or scroll of prayers which she holds in her hand, representing the dharma (teaching) of the Buddha or the sutra (Buddhist text) which Miao Shan is said to have constantly recited; and a rosary adorning her neck with which she calls upon the Buddhas for succor.
