As if I haven’t been obsessed enough with all things outdoors as permanent warm weather approaches, I had to go and find these beautiful capiz shell wind chimes at Celery Street. Typically, I’m not a fan of wind chimes. Some people find the sound of chimes blowing in the wind to be soothing, but I tend to think of chimes as the equivalent of ugly, noisy, gaudy, 80s-style earrings for your home. But these? Nothing short of beautiful.
I have always loved capiz shells and their high-end, sophisticated look. But I admit I never would have thought to take them outside. I am a firm believer in making outdoor spaces an extension of the indoors and paying just as much attention to the details there. It’s easy to buy patio furniture, but it’s a lot harder to make your patio look like an outdoor room. Details like these wind chimes will help you do that.
They are available in a dizzying array of sizes and shapes and shades of white, blue and green — perfect spring and summer colors. And if you need a further incentive to accessorize your outdoor space, first-time customers get 10% off their first order from CeleryStreet.com. The discount is applied automatically when you check out.
Why It’s Green:
- Made of natural capiz shells
- Fair Trade
UPDATE: I used one of these in my daughter’s room. Want to see how it turned out? Click here!
