Come on, come on, come on, come on and take it! Take another little piece of my (junkers) heart windchime. Its made using a Janis Joplin album and pieces of junk treasures.
I included keys, spicket knob, funky wrench, spindle, vintage jewelry, buttons, #9 (I wont need it later, Id never turn any Beatles album into a windchime), spoon, spring, doorknob, a hinge, and the Scrabble tile letters H,E,A,R,T.   
Stevie Wonders Songs in the Key of Life album became Keys in the Song of Life Windchime. 
Future windchime.  I know the answers are Blowing in the Wind, but what objects will be blowing in the wind?

When the record challenge was issued, I passed the news on to my family and asked for their thoughts on what musician I might be.  The only concensus reached was John Denver.  So, clearly they didn't understand the premise since it was pretty obvious the answer should be Janis Joplin.  Her voice! Her soul! Her passion! Her screaming!

And then Candy challenged us for windchimes projects.  So much junk inspiration, so little time -- so I decided to get two for the price of one, I'd use albums to make windchimes.  And maybe I'm not the Janis Joplin of the music world, but I could be of the junking world. The junk soul!  The junk passion! And sometimes the junk screaming! So naturally I had to make a "Piece of my Heart" windchime using pieces that are close to a junker's heart -- keys, vintage jewelry, silverware, etc.

My second one was a no-brainer.  I came across Stevie Wonder's Songs in the Keys of Life -- come on, did I have a choice?  I was trying for a third one since I had a cowbell, but I couldn't find any drumsticks or Blue Oyster Cult (MORE COWBELL!).  But as I was shopping, I did find a Bob Dylan record that I quickly snatched up.  That will be my next one.  I'm just not sure which objects to use.  Does anyone have some ideas?  ....  I guess the answer to that one is ...well...

Take care,

Thanks.

The wind chimes came out great too. I really like the one with the keys.
