Wind chimes in winter

Carolyn | Thursday, January 24, 2013 in Chime info, News | Comments (0)

snowychime2Perfect poem for this snowy day here at BuyChimes…

“In winter’s cold and sparkling snow,
The garden in my mind does grow.
I look outside to blinding white,
And see my tulips blooming bright.
And over there a sweet carnation,
Softly scents my imagination…”
-Cheryl Magic-Lady, Winter Garden

To be sure, spring is just a few months away! But for now, this Corinthian Bells 36-inch wind chime looks great nestled under a cap of snow.

Happy for all seasons,

Corinthian Bells wind chimes: a gift of love

Carolyn | Wednesday, January 16, 2013 in Chime info, Gift info | Comments (0)

Did you know… All Corinthian Bells wind chimes come with a little black “hang tag” located right above the wind sail at the bottom of the chime. This tag is a little booklet filled with helpful information. It tell you what chime you’ve purchased (probably the best info, right?!), the scale to which it is hand-tuned, warranty information and descriptive language about Corinthian Bells chimes. So it’s all really helpful – and customers usually keep the tag handy for future reference.

But the best part: on the back of this tag, under the UPC label, you’ll find this:“So faith, hope and love abide, these three, but the greatest of these is love. I Corinthians 13.” This is the reason Corinthian Bells chimes are named what they are. And this is the reason they make a delightful gift for someone you love.

Call us at 877-293-6395 if we can help you pick out the perfect Corinthian chime!

How to Protect your Wind Chime in Winter

Carolyn | Saturday, November 17, 2012 in Chime info, News | Comments (0)

During Hurricane Sandy, a number of customers called regarding what to do to protect their wind chimes. While all the chimes that we sell are made for year-round, outdoor use, certainly common sense should prevail when gale-force winds, whether with rain or snow, are predicted.

It is recommended that you take your chime down in high winds – and the same holds true for severe snow storms. Customers in the Northeast, Upper MidWest and Pacific Northwest often comment that they put their chime in the garage or shed during the winter months, simply to prolong its beauty for the summer months. Good idea!

Here in Virginia, we have a temperate climate, so most wind chimes are absolutely fine to be outside hanging year-round. Mine sure are! And it’s lovely to see the snow create beautiful, artistic patterns on the top crown and tubes – only to quickly melt away, usually within a day.

What do you do with your chimes in winter? We’d love to hear!

“My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard.

We’ve been so busy launching the new website that we overlooked the March Featured Chime… But don’t worry, sweet Shenandoah Melodies chime, we have NOT forgotten you!

SM1305_smallThe Shenandoah Melodies 1305 (or 34-inch) wind chime is a not-too-big, not-too-small accent piece for your garden. Similar to the Corinthian Bells 36-inch chime (made by the same folks), it is hand-tuned to the key of E, a pleasing key to most ears.

As one of the Shenandoah chimes best-sellers, the 1305 makes a wonderful gift for anyone! Think Mother’s Day, end-of-year gifts for teachers, house-warming, etc. And the best part, it can be engraved! The flat wind sail makes a perfect surface for your laser engraved message.
