Do You Have Wind Chimes?

Smith & Hawken at ShopStyle

Some people love the sound of wind chimes, while other people can't stand extra noise around the home. Do you decorate your porch or garden area with chimes?

My husband loves them so I got him one of the huge bell tone ones.. they make me nuts. I have bamboo ones outside my bedroom window and they're nice but the big clangy ones have to come down during windstorms. His parents have like 8 sets. My mother in law made one out of shells and it's nice.

I really love them. The wind is blowing here now and my windows are open so I can hear them. My husband tends to go out and tie them up, because they are loud and he says they bother him. When I notice that I go untie them because I love the sound. (Oh no one leaves very close to me, so that is not a problem.)

People who have them, did you ask your neighbors before you put them up, assuming you live in close proximity to others? I really hate my neighbors' and I think what bothers me even more is that they never bothered to ask if their neighbors would mind and just instead inflicted them on us.

They bug me generally, but maybe I'd like the wooden ones.

No but I hate the ones the woman below me has. In the summer on a windy night they keep me up when my window is open. Ughhhhhhhhhhhh.

I love my windchimes, which hang out on my balcony. I took them down once during a big windstorm and forgot to hang them back up - I ended up tossing and turning all night, since I was so used to hearing them.

My mom has some and they annoyed me until we got new double paned windows. Now I can barely hear them and they aren't so bad. I'm surprised our neighbors haven't complained yet.

I remember my neighbors keeping me up at night when I was younger so I will never get one because I like my neighbors and don't want to piss them off.

No, and I want to break my neighbor's.

Yes, and we love them. We have them on the front porch and also around our deck that's on the side of our home. They relax me.

They came with my apartment.

I don't have wind chimes because I can hear my neighbour's (who lives 2 acres away) and they drive me insane. I never thought about bamboo ones, so thanks ElleJay.

I have bamboo windchimes and I love them! They aren't annoying like the clangy metal ones.

my hubs hates 'em, but I find their melancholy tones very pleasant and soothing. I'm putting them up next time he works late.

When I think of wind chimes i always think of the movie "The Hand that Rocks the Cradle"

I would like them but they are against condo rules.

I have this great wooden wind chime I got at a market in London and when I first moved to the area where I live now, I didn't have a porch/balcony, so I left it at my parents. Now that I have a balcony, I may have to go back and steal it from them.

Nope.. They don't bother me, I just never found the need for them.

Yes, I love them! I have them actually outside on our balcony. I was worried people might get irritated by them, but no one has said anything yet, and none of our neighboors really go outside anyway.

No, I find them annoying.

I love wind chimes, my hubby does not, he finds them irritating. I would love to have windchimes in my yard.
