Lighthouses in the wind! For lighthouse lovers, what could be more charming than watching as a breeze plays with a little lighthouse on their porch, patio, or in their garden?
Wind Spinners do just what their name says. They spin or whirl in the wind, and are often made of a reflective material so that reflecting light 'dances' with their movement.
Wind chimes, of course, make a tinkling sound in the breeze, which some people find quite comforting.
Some of these nautical yard decorations are just fanciful representations, while others have been inspired by real beacons. Some of those that have that classic red and white striped lighthouse look may have been inspired by the recently restored Assateague Light, on the island of the same name. I've included a little information about it for you, why it's now two miles farther from the shore than it used to be , and when you can tour it.
The lighthouse chimes and spinners showcased here are natural components for a nautical decor or a coastal decor. Whether you choose a lighthouse wind spinner, or a set of lighthouse windchimes, you'll have a nice outdoor decoration that will enhance your enjoyment of your special space
Seeing a lighthouse as you sail, motor, or cruise along seems to always give you a feeling of comfort and safety.
CruiseReady, Thank you for lighthouse-themed wind-chimes and wind-spinners. Decorating porch fronts and yard trees with them may be seen as a way of remembering lighthouse-keepers and thanking them and their structures so that we may travel in safety and with the assurance of help in case of trouble along the coasts.
Thank you! Lighthouse really are fascinating.
I didn't know windchimes were that old in the Western world. Nice piece. I enjoyed your comments on lighthouses as well.
Thank you, blackspanielgallery
