I love everything about wind chimes. A wind chime, also know as a wind catcher, is a decoration that you can hang outside or near an open window. Or you could hang it from a tree in your flower garden. A wind chime is a construction of rods, metal, glass or tubes that are suspended from tree or the top of a window.
Wind Chimes are the perfect decoration for your home or garden. Not only are they pretty, but a Wind Chime is so pleasing to the ears.
The sound of a Wind Chime....Soothing music
As the wind blows the objects gently hit each other causing the wind chime to make the most beautiful sounds. For me, the sound of a wind chime is just like music. Really it is music for the soul. I think the sound of a wind chime is very soothing and healing to the body and mind. It makes the entire atmosphere relaxed. A wind chime can turn any location into heaven.

Although most people use a wind chime as a decoration, in the past people used wind chimes as a way to predict the weather. By having a wind chime people could quickly tell if the wind was picking up and which direction the wind is coming from. This would let people know if a storm was on it's way. Farmers would use a wind chime hanging outside to help them to predict a change in the weather.
There are many different kind of windchimes. There are butterfly windchimes, bamboo windchimes and I've even seen a unique windchimes. I once saw a home made wind chime made of kitchen cooking utensals.
