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.

Woodstock Wind Chime
These woodstock wind chimes have the most beautiful harmonious sound. If you enjoy the sounds of the outdoors (birds singing and leaves blowing in the wind) then you will love the addition of the alto wind chimes. They actually sound like they are playing a melody and they gently blow in the wind. Woodstock has a huge selection of wind chimes that come in many different attractive and unique designs. But they also come in different sounds including Soprano? and Baritone?.

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.
Here is a selection of some of my favorite wind chimes as well as some unique wind chimes.
