Ever since childhood, I’ve been a musical person. At the age of seven, I started taking piano lessons. When I was a teenager, I began singing solos at community events. Not surprisingly, I adore wind chimes. Every time the wind blows, these beautiful music makers spring into action. Their soothing, melodious, and high pitched sound calms and refreshes me. I am amazed at the amount of eclectic wind chimes available for sale at various retailers. One can enjoy the music of pig, cat, or even seashell themed wind chimes. If you know someone who enjoys natural harmonies, wind chimes make a perfect gift. On this blog, you will discover how to buy the right set of wind chimes for your loved one. Enjoy!
If you enjoy buying birdhouses and birdbaths for your feathered friends, you are probably already aware of the beauty and appeal these items can add to your backyard. Fortunately, you don't have to limit their use to the outdoors only. Used indoors, they can help you create a delightful garden-inspired decorating theme all around the house.
In the bathroom
Shop for a unique birdhouse that looks like an old-fashioned outhouse to use in a charming wall grouping in your bathroom. Attach a picture hanger to the back of the birdhouse and hang on the wall. Use a swag of greenery intertwined with miniature flowers above the birdhouse. Complete your wall grouping by adding a candle sconce on each side of the birdhouse.
In the kitchen
Flowers and birdhouses make a dramatic impact when used together to create a garden-themed kitchen. Shop for unique birdhouses in the shape of a country store, ice cream parlor, etc. Place the birdhouse on a shelf. Complete the look by adding a few metal kitchen utensils and a small swag of sunflowers or daisies.
You can also opt to use miniature watering cans, flower pots, or garden tools instead of kitchen utensils.
If you want a unique way to grow your own herb garden inside, purchase a birdbath and fill with potting soil. Plant several different kinds of herbs and use small wooden stakes to mark the names of the herbs. Place the birdbath near a patio door or sunny window for a charming garden-inspired addition to your kitchen.
In the living room
Look for wooden birdhouses with side doors that open for cleaning. Place battery operated candles inside several birdhouses. Use the birdhouses in place of candle lanterns in your living room. You can also use them in place of traditional candle sconces if desired.
For a truly unique look that will brighten up even the darkest corner of the room, place a birdbath in a corner of the living room. Arrange several pillar candles of varying heights in the birdbath. Wrap a strand of dried flowers and lighted garland around the pole of the birdbath for a perfect touch of ambiance.
In the entryway
Greet your visitors with a lovely garden-themed entryway to welcome them into your home. Purchase about a dozen miniature birdhouses in different unique designs to make a wall grouping. Experiment with different ways to arrange the houses. Space them out to avoid an overly crowded look.
Place a birdbath in a corner of the entryway and fill with silk flowers. Make sure you use both small and large stemmed flowers to achieve the best look. Tuck a few mini birdhouse decorative picks among the flowers for a nice finishing touch.
Bringing birdhouses and birdbaths indoors is a great way to add a touch of beauty and charm to every room of your home. Garden-inspired decorating is warm and inviting. Not only will your friends and loved ones feel welcome in your home, you will enjoy being surrounded by items that remind you of the great outdoors.
