Finally posting pics, Sorry it took so long Kittymom13.  This weekend totally got away from me.

Close up

I wish my Nana was still around to see this one. She was in a kitchen band and she would have been very jealous.  It reminds me of the instruments she used to make, and it sounds like it too.  I wish we could upload sound files so you could all hear it!

Thanks again Kittymom, I love it!

Wow!  There are a lot of really beautiful chimes in here!!  I feel like I made the red headed step child of chimes  Cry  But I did receive an amazing set from my partner!!

She did a great job of stalking me, because I love moon and star stuff.  I am amazed by all the detailed wire work, and the beads are beautiful.  I can't thank you enough  kmichele_craftyfae!!!

I am so glad you liked your chime! It was so much fun to dig through my stash picking out all the pieces for it.

I finally got around to snapping a picture of my chime from lukenlarry! I really love the sound it creates. And it was such a huge hit with the rest of my family as well. It fits right in with the rest of our mishmash of wind chimes my mom collects. And my cat, Galahad, likes to sit under the chime watching the heart spin in the wind.



Thanks for being such an awesome partner!!

I received from Realityinvazion, but didn't get a chance to take photos before it got dark. Sad  I will definitely get some good ones tomorrow to post this awesome wind chime!!!

I received my wind chime from CuriousCoffee, and I LOVE IT!

I'm amazed by the amount of matching bottle-caps she was able to save up.


There are metal rods and altered forks that hit the bottle to make noise.



And the whole thing is orange and sunflower themed just like she knew I wanted.



I left my house and didn't even notice the package on my front porch until I was in my car, but I opened it right away, and it never even made it into my house! I hung it on my front porch, and it's been rainy, so it's making lots of noise in the breeze. The temperature is nice though, so I can hear it through all my open windows... It arrived on a good weekend.  Grin

Here are the photos of my wind chime from Realityinvazion!  She did a wonderful job, and I definitely loved the old vinyl and soda bottles!  Super simple and cute!
