Wind Chime Love....

Oh, I just love the gentle, melodic sound of wind chimes. We have three of them around our home that have a deep wonderful sound. Yesterday, we had beautiful weather with the wind gently blowing. I had the windows open and listened to the wind chime sound all day long. This one is on our back deck and I believe was the first one we purchased.
This next one is right by the front door. It is a bit smaller than the other two but still has that deep pretty tone to it.
This last one is also in the front, at the corner of the house. My parents gave this one to us for Christmas. See the clear orbs in it? They are solar powered lights so at night they light up. It is beautiful and also has a beautiful sound.
Hope you all are having a great Monday. It is Spring Break here and I hope the weather is beautiful all week long. We aren't going anywhere, just hanging out and relaxing. I am also taking care of five cats across the street (at their home). Hope that goes well. I'll try to get a picture of all of them later this week.

I've never even heard of a solar powered wind chime that lights up at night. How special!

Marilyn said...

I love your wind chimes. I also love the sounds they make. We took one down because of the high winds and need to get it back up. I know you love having that garage cleaned out. How nice to find someone in need to take your things. I know they loved getting them. Good luck with the kitties and have a great spring break.

Marilyn said...

P.S. LOL That wind chime your parents gave you is wonderful with the solar orbs. I bet it is beautiful at night. It is beautiful in the day light too!!

Lisa Ann said...

I love them to but it's so windy here they would be gone in a hurry. The one with the solar lights is really neat.

I love wind chimes but if I had one the wind wouldn't be blowing it~my kids would be doing it ALL DAY!

Hi Darlene...I have a wind chime similar to the first one you showed...I really like the one your parents gave you for Christmas. My grandson is here for a few days during his spring break so I am one happy old woman! ;-) Bo

I love the sound of wind chimes.

I hope you have a relaxing week and 5 kitties, how fun!!!

I love wind chimes too - especially those big fat church bell sounding ones.
Have a great Monday.

I'm glad your weather is good for spring break! We've had nothing but rain! Can't wait for summer. I like wind chimes too. They're relaxing.

Kitty Scraps said...

Good Morning Miz Darlene,
We have wind chimes too, love them! Last summer The Girl hung up bamboo ones, totally different sound, not sure if I'm in love with those as much as the musical ones *smiles*

Five kitties?!?! Wowser, that's a lot to keep track off! Good luck with that! *smiles* We just added another addition to our happy little home, a 2year old Pekingese named Dallas. He has Indy on the run which leaves Indy very little time to attack Miss Sissy, the animal drama never ends here! *smiles*

Enjoy your spring break!

I have one that looks almost exactly like your first one. I love the deep sound it makes, and I can't wait until warmer weather gets this way so I can open the window while I'm sitting at the computer and listen to its beautiful music. Of course, the way I've been feeling it could have felt like paradise outside and I wouldn't have cared! : )

Stacey said...

Happy Spring Break Darlene!! Us too. :)

Love your wind chimes. I love to hear them...only when the winds not blowing too hard.

Denise K. said...

I LOVE windchimes but have never owned one...how sad is that? You have motivated me to head out today and buy a beautiful set for myself!!! Enjoy your spring break and your time with your daughter! Good luck with the kitties too! Happy Monday! Smiles, Denise :-)

Joanna said...

I love wind chimes just don't have any here because of some of the strong winds that we have. Although I should hang at least one. Maybe I will this year!

Have a great spring break!

mysteryhistorymom said...

I do love wind chimes! It seems like nothing should ever go wrong when they are "singing".:) What a neat idea to have solar powered chimes! Lori

April said...

I love your chimes with the solar orbs. I'd like to have one of those myself! I'm the same way...I become almost mesmerized by the pretty melodies of wind chimes.

Michelle said...

Love the wind chimes...I bet it sounds like Spring in the air around your place!

Have a nice Spring Break!!!

Shannon said...

I love wind chimes. That solar powered one is so pretty! It sounds really neat too.

Nola @ the Alamo said...

I love chimes, too. Those are the first ones I've ever seen with solar powered lights, do you know where it came from? My beloved hates the sound, but I think chimes are so relaxing!

So pretty! I hope you have a lot more of that lovely weather. It's supposed to be in the 70's here for the next couple of days. YAY!

Miss Laura Lu/RMS4291960 said...

Lorrie said...

Darlene I love windchimes too! I've never seen a solar-powered one--very cool! We had such warm weather a week ago and the last few days it's been raining and in the 30s-40s. I am so ready for Spring. Enjoy your break week with Lexi.

Daphine said...

Love your wind chimes. We used to have several hanging outside too in our last home. Since we move almost two years ago, they are still sitting out in the garage. Thanks for reminding me to hang them up soon!

Happy Monday and enjoy Spring Break. My girls are out too!

Ramona said...

Good Morning Darlene ~ Such a great post! I love your chimes...and Happy Belated Birthday to your sweet daughter Lexi. Our youngest daughter just turned 12 on Feb. 28...love them Pisces!!!

Have a great week,
Ramona

Hi Darlene
Your wind chimes are lovely. I have never seen a solar powered light up windchime. It must look amazing at the front of your house.
Good luck with the cats!
Lindsay

Good luck with kitty sitting :)

Hope you're having a great week!

Rambling Girl said...

I have several wind chimes also and love hearing mine. I will have to share mine one day also.

Oh thanks Darlene for leaving me a message about going to Target..I will keep my fingers crossed!

Judi said...

Darlene
I love wind chimes too. Some of them have the most beautiful sounds and yours look to be of that type. It makes having a little breeze so welcoming. Isn't that interesting to have one solar lit too. Fancy..... :o)
Hope you have a lovely day
Judi

Joy said...

I love wind chimes too! My husband, however, is not a fan so I have to sneak them in around the yard where ever I can.
Darlene, Thank you so very much for always leaving sweet notes for me to read. I really do appreciate them!

Beth at Aunties said...

I haven't ever heard solar powered wind chimes. I bet they not only sound beautiful but look great at night.
Happy belated Birthday to your special miracle, Lexie! She is a beautiful gift!!!! :-)

nikkicrumpet said...

I love the sound of windchimes...they are so peaceful. And just let the cats our and let them roam...they love that! hehehe

Controlling My Chaos said...

I love windchimes. Peanut Head and I have the same set that we got for our wedding almost 19 years ago.

Laurel @ Ducks in a Row said...

One that glows at night - that's too cool!

Jessica said...

My dad has made some wind chimes and people have fell in love with them. Those that you have look neat!

I think this is my first time to your blog, it seems you always have a positive outlook of life and that is refreshing...the small things are appreciated as much as the larger things!

Feel free to stop by my blog and say hello as well! :)

Farm Chick Paula said...

Oh I love my chimes too, Darlene... I have my Corinthian Bells on the front porch and my bamboo ones on the back next to the bedroom window. I just love hearing them!

Ginger said...

Hi Darlene:
I love wind chimes too. They are so relaxing to listen to.

Aleta said...

Thanks for sharing the wind chime pictures! Greg made some chimes for his Mom's birthday and I was amazed at how beautiful they sound!

Neabear said...

Your windchimes are so pretty. I have small ones. Maybe someday we will ge the big ones with the deep sound. Hope you had a good St Patrick's Day. Spring break comes and goes without me noticing it these days. With both kids grown up and out of the house and me no longer working a school job, those kinds of days are no longer a part of my life. Maybe someday my granddaughter can visit during spring break. That would be cool.

Jessica said...

I adore wind chimes! I like to think it's a way for angels to communicate. I make my own chimes out of thrown away electric fence and old glass. You dont get that deep ring like the metal chimes, but more of a tinkle. I just love them. Its a good thing I dont have close neighbors...lol
