A To Z - W is for Windchimes!

Sorry the last post and this one are kind of lame.  I didn't have the time to put in as much effort as I normally do since I was getting ready for my surprise anniversary weekend away with my hubby.  This post is scheduled to post today by the way.

So for W I wanted to share my windchimes!  I LOVE windchimes.  I wish I had a whole collection of them, but sadly they are kind of expensive so I only have a few.  The other unfortunate thing is most of them are still packed away in storage and my nice big one is broken.... rats!  Anyway I'll show you a couple that I do have hung and a couple of my mom's instead.  Sorry the pictures aren't great.  The rain stopped, but it was still dim so they came out blurry.  I was also in a hurry so not my finest work hehe.


First up is my wooden one.  Wood ones make such a unique sound!!  I have it under the porch since I don't think it would weather well.


Next is my dragonfly one.  This one has such a pretty sound!  It doesn't catch much wind under the porch (again I don't think this one would weather well), but I like to run my finger across it like a harp and listen to it.  :)


Here is one of my mom's that I love!  It's a birdhouse and the thing hanging under it that bumps the chimes is a little yellow bird.  How cute!  You can also see the decorative fencing around her new raised veggie bed that I posted about yesterday.  Also the big black fence that surrounds her yard is one my dad and I built years ago when I was a kid.  I could have posted about it for today since we Welded it, but oh well.  I didn't think of it until just now.


Another one of mom's.  I love the design at the top.  Sorry I cut the bottom off, but it's such a big one that if I tried to get the whole thing you wouldn't have been able to see the top very well.


And last is my horse bell.  I know it's not a windchime, but it makes noise too and I love it so I had to share. I have it hanging outside my front door.  Don't let it's small size (a bit bigger than my hand) fool you, it is LOUD!

Well that's all for today!  Sorry it's so short and that the pictures are blurry.  See you next week!

  1. I LOVE wind chimes, but I've noticed they are not common here in Switzerland. I am under the impression they are a non spoken "no no". They would get in the way of the silence of this country. :(

  4. Thank you everyone!

    schar, I've heard of the noise rules in other countries, but I never thought about wind chimes! That would make me so sad. I love listening to them when the wind is blowing. :) I got a new one on my trip this weekend that I'll share a picture of soon (after A to Z finishes). :D It's beautiful!
