W is for Windchime

I am linking this to....... Alphabe-Thursday


I like wind chimes. But i like wind chimes that are not so.... normal. I have wind chimes outside, and i also have them hanging in my sewing room. Just in case it gets windy you know.
As luck would have it, the most musical one is hanging where the furnace air hits it when it comes on. Way cool.
But, thats not the one i'm showing you here.
The photo is of the one wind chime that glows in the morning sun. It doesn't really have that nice of a sound. More of a clink clank than a tinkle or a bong, but it glows. And i really really love that. We need all the glowing beauty we can get, don't you agree?

  3. I love the crystals in your header! What a beautiful idea for a window. I live way out in the country and don't have curtains so I can enjoy the view, but I may try hanging some crystals to brighten up my windows.....

  5. I love wind shimes too. YOu have some really pretty ones! I especially love the one made from old silverware. I have two outside on the deck, and it is so soothing to hear them as they sing in the wind.

  6. Good morning Linda,

    that's a funny idea, with the wind chimes. I love them too, yours is very unique. Your creativity is great present for you.

    Here can you hear a very lovely one, if you are curious, put in google the four words: wind chime shanti Pyrenees, than open the page of etoiles cristallines you will see it after the search on the first page. Just at the first page of them below you can click on six differentlistenings and you can hear the wind chimes. They are tuned and very special. My favorite is Golden harvest. Enjoy it for your new day!

  8. I have a similar set of wind chimes made out knives, forks, and spoons. Mine hang above the kitchen sink and don't get much breeze there, but when they do they clank just like your set.
