I got a crazy idea from browsing pictures on line that I could slump 4 small bottles with a high fire loop in each to create tings for a wind chime.  Sure enough it worked!  I scrounged up a cool stick from a park here in Seattle.  Viola!  Wind chimes.  They sound kind of groovy!

I have four miniature Coca-Cola glasses that I am thinking I will try next.  Stay tuned!
