ladybug windchime

IMG_7904

Meet the ladybug windchime, carved from a coconut and (no longer unidentified wood) bamboo *thanks, Titania*, picked up in Athens, carefully brought home as hand luggage, lovingly hanged on the veranda, prettily chiming away.

Until I decided I had to take it down in order to get a decent photo in good light of it's cuteness. Then happened one of those most-accidents-happen-at-home things - no stupid details will be revealed other than that there were one sore ankle, angry rose shrubs and thorns, some blood and sore bumps in head involved - and suddenly chime was in many more pieces than intended.

The gluing of pieces back together again went reasonably well, the reconstruction of the whole chime did not. It hangs on the veranda again, but it just doesn't look nor chime like it did. Such a pity due to one ridiculously clumsy owner of one once upon a time very cute ladybug wind chime. I'm so sorry, little coconut bug, please forgive me.

This is a very pretty ladybug chime. I think the chimes are carved from Bamboo. Sometimes accidents happen and it is very annoying when it is our own doing!
