It's time..time to chime!! :) Are you as ready for spring and spring breezes as I am? Are you looking forward to hearing the soft, tinkling sounds of windchimes? I AM!! So join me as we do our fourth annual swap of windchimes!

I will take names of participants until February 10th and I'll send out names on the 11th. This is a secret buddy swap, so no one tell whose name you're sending to :)

The windchimes will need to be sent by February 25th..please try to keep to that date and no later..

If you'd like to tell us your favorite type of chimes, please feel free..BUT there is no obligation on your buddy's part to get that particular type :) That's part of the fun, to get something new and different..who knows..you might find a NEW favorite by doing so!

My rules are simple:
1. Buy or make your buddy a windchime (let's keep it to no more than $20 plus shipping)
2. Post a picture when you receive your chime..we love seeing all the varieties of what everyone receives
3. Have fun :)

That's it... now who needs a new set of windchimes besides me??

We cross-posted :) I was just updating the received ones and I went back to find Cindy's buddy LOL..

Wow, I can't believe we got these out and received so quick.. Just our wonderful Canada lady is waiting on hers, which we know is always a bit of a slow time due to the border :)



I know we have a couple of folks who haven't been able to post pictures of their chimes yet. I hope you can get those on here soon... we want to see them lol.. ^_^

these photo's do not do the windchimes justice...you just wait until they are outside and I take photo's..hopefully tomorrow the wind will have died down and snow off to someone else's neck of the woods..

but for now..

first photo is a solar birdfeeder..lots of deep ohhhh's on that one...

What beautiful chimes you received Betty! I agree- I've never been disappointed with the chimes (or other things, for that matter) that I've received.

That's it.. we have reached the end of this swap! Great job everyone :) For the folks who haven't posted pics yet, please feel free to add yours, even though I"m going to close this thread out. We do love seeing what everyone receives!

Thanks to all of you for a very enjoyable swap.. can't wait for the next one :)

Finally got pics of my gifts from Susie. Let's hope they post.

A lovely wind chime, a personalized planter, a mason jar with a lady-bug collection that I believe can be used as a pin cushion as well, a packet of flower seeds, and fancy pins to use on my quilting, which will come in handy when binding.

Today was hot here, in the mid 80's, and it was humid. While I was potting Caladium bulbs that had been in storage since last Fall, a nice breeze blew and tinkled the windchimes under our Cherry Tree where I have chimes so many of you have given me. I thought to myself you all were singing to me.

You're so welcome, Kathy. Enjoy!

Music to your ears..love the Cherry tree!

I actually hung mine just off the deck until the gardens are cleaning then will find a permanent home for it, likely in the secret garden!

Got to love these swaps.
