I"m loving the ideas that everyone has come up with for this swap!  There are some great additions to outside, porches and the one I got from roniwink today is Super-Splendiferous(I LovE it!):
Loads of pics in order to share the crafty goodness:
Sorry for the sideways pic-

Empty birdcage and a couple of butterflies-

You cannot believe the wiring and beadwork-A little birdsnest!

I do apologize for hoarding space...but I am truly amazed by the skill used to make this pretty windchime! 
Thank YOU roniwink! =]  And I liked the Veggietales cards on the box and the Mary Englebright card...this IS like Christmas!

Received my wind chime today.  I can't post pics until tomorrow.  I love it, very creative.  I have wanted a wind chime for a while, but definitely did not want a store bought one.  It's prefect.  I am so impressed with everyon's creativity.  I love using recycled materials because it makes you think more creatively.  I also love an excuse to collect things that I find at yard sales and thrift stores.  I have a very awsome Richard Nixon decorative plate that is screaming for me to make a tiered treat dish out of it.  I had been holding that bird cage for almost a year after I initially found it.  So cute, but the right project never presented itself until this one.  I had so much fun!  Bravo again to everyone, great stuff!!!!

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!!

Close up:

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!!!

TheManicCrafter made a stunning windchime for me!

It is HUGE and will look so great hanging from my back yard pine tree, near the hammock.
It was difficult to take a good pic of it due to the long size, but here is a view from the bottom

and a close up of the twisted forks that she painted gold and are soo cool

The variety of materials in this piece is amazing. The top part looks like a base for a candle or something.  i love it. The forks impress me - my injured wrist and thumb will do no such thing as create forks like this.
I love the butterflies, and the tiny chime at the bottom.  It is just an all around nice thing to have.  thank you so much, TheManicCrafter.
ps if you have more appropriate pics, I'd love for you to post 'em!
