A change of month and a change in the wind have all but assured me that—though Friday was actually quite beautiful and warm—I will probably not see too many more above-50˚F days. This past weekend's frigid temps and this morning's frost remind me of a bit of a verse from "April Come She Will," by Simon & Garfunkel: "The autumn winds blow chilly and cold."
Perhaps these winds have led me to the Aura Chimes at Ladies & Gentlemen Studio. The wind chimes feature a mix of materials: brass bells, wooden shapes, leather, and metal tubes all fabricated by Ladies & Gentlemen and paired with unique ceramic pieces crafted by Nicholas Nyland, a Seattle-based artist. Each wind chime is handmade so no two will be exactly alike.
The chimes are for use indoors or outdoors under cover and there are three versions, but the single ring style comes in two sizes. They are striking little works of art, even when they're not tinkling with faint metallic vibrations.

Let's all admit we have at least one IKEA piece in our house, whether it's the staple POANG chair or a BESTA, KARLSTAD, or HEMNES. And I know how the Elizabeth, NJ IKEA store can be on a Saturday, but putting that aside, do you think you can tell the difference between the often mysteriously-named IKEA products and the names of death metal music groups?
Click the image above to test your knowledge of flat-packed fabulousness versus blood-soaked metal bands. Thankfully, no allen wrench required.
I got 16 correct out of 20, can you beat me?
