Wind chimes and a PGA victory!

Just when I think I’ve seen everything a wind chime can do, something quirky and new comes along!

As you may know, Keegan Bradley, a 25-year-old rookie golfer who hails from Vermont, just won the 93rd PGA tournament last Sunday. Congrats to him! And to celebrate his golf wins, his mother (don’t you just love proud moms!) “runs up and down the street like a crazy woman with wind chimes.” How delightful! (If you want to read more, check it out here.

And it is true. Chimes are so versatile. People think of wind chimes as simply hanging from a hook in the front yard. Yet, here are some unusual ways that customers have told me that they use and hang wind chimes:
- feng shui for the inside of home
- house blessing for new home
- memorial at the graveside of a relative or friend
- wind catcher in tractor-trailer
- calming force for mentally challenged family member
- harmonize with melodies of Mother Earth (no kidding – one customer is very into connecting with the Earth)
- AND NOW – victorious celebration of son’s PGA win!

I love to hear how customers use wind chimes! Even better, I’d love to hear how YOU use and/or hang your chimes. Send me stories and pictures – I’m busy creating a section on the site that features stories and pictures just like yours.
