I think our front and back doors would hit the silver if I tried to hang something on the light fixtures. Maybe I'll do one of these babies on our outside light. Mmmm, what do you think the neighbors will think on a windy day??? Keep up the good work. :o) Posted: 12:41 pm on March 30th

monakent writes: I adore this project. I have seen windchimes done with vintage silverware (which sold like crazy at a booth next to me years ago at an art fair), but THIS, this is even better!!! KUDOS to you for doing this on your own, after seeing it in a magazine. Not that I am planning on doing the same (although it IS tempting), but how did you make this work? I can't figure out what you did.... gailmarie, bfa Posted: 7:28 am on March 30th

fellowjunker writes: Very cool!!!! This would be so nice on a porch as well as the silverware would tinkle in the wind. Great idea, so glad you shared.
