Chime Time

After purchasing three bolts yesterday, I was able to attach this bell to a corner of our back porch.  We brought the bell back from North Carolina.  Our brother and sister-in-law had purchased it years ago in northwest Indiana but didn't think it fit with their lawn decor.  We were happy to bring it home!  It has a beautifully deep (and loud) ring tone!  Looks like I need to clean one of the porch posts....


  1. It's gorgeous! Now Rebecca can ring the bell when dinner's ready! Love Di ♥

  2. I love old things too. I love to see old antiques restored and/or refinished and used. My brother has a bell almost like that. He and always chide back and forth about it because it came from my Grandparents farm and I want it but he won't give it up. I have a couple of things he likes and we are always kidding back and forth about making trades. It is soooooooooo fun! Enjoy!
