Wind Chimes: The Nostalgic Sound of Your Grandma's Front Porch

There are a few things you're bound to hear the second you wake up in the south. Chirping birds, trucks that are speeding down the street, and of course, wind chimes. Wind chimes make lovely outdoor decor for patios. What makes them interesting isn't entirely based on their looks, but the noises they make.

Outdoor wind chimes make peaceful, soothing sounds on windy days. I always think of my grandma's house when I hear metal wind chimes. They don't all sound the same, so shop for bamboo wind chimes, glass wind chimes, and more. Find one that makes a beautiful song you'll love.

The Origin of Wind Chimes

The famous outdoor home-decor is dated back to South East Asia around 3000 B.C. It's been said that the chimes symbolize luck and peace.
