door chimes...

one of my favorite things around our home are the door chimes we have. i love the simple and clear sound they make as the doors open and close. we have one on the front door, one on the back door and one on the garage door. and no matter where we are in the house, we know the sound of each chime and which door is being opened. it is comforting somehow. sort of magical in a way. here is a picture of the one that hangs on our garage door - a favorite, for sure. one that i have had for many, many years...



yours in the sweet sound of chimes,

It looks lovely, I can imagine that it makes just as lovely of a sound. Ha, I was just today thinking of attaching a bell to our front door for the cat to ring when she wants to go outside!

mama randa - that's so funny! we had greyhounds before we had maya and they always used the back door chimes to let us know they needed to go outside. :)

jenn - i bought these particular door chimes years and years ago from our local waldorf school. i have no idea who the manufacturer is. but i think nova natural sells similar ones?

i have one of those (on order actually..i need to check on that!) but its natural wood instead, they don't offer the colorful ones anymore. its made by kinderkram.
