The Art of A Rain Chain

"Art" 
is probably not the first word that comes to mind for most people when it rains. 
If you have ever seen a Rain Chain 
then maybe you'll understand why I think of it this way. 


copper, metal, patina,


design, texture, beauty...


peaceful, 


mesmerizing...



If you've read my blog for some time, you might remember, this "desert girl" is fascinated with 
rain chains. :-)
I'm still traveling...Seattle...it's raining...
I'm sharing my Rain Chain Art this week at Lisa Gordon's 

I have been reading and enjoying your comments.
When I'm back home, I will have more time to visit and get caught up with you. 
Hope your week is off to a great start!

Stunning photos! I want one of those as well!! Not sure where hubby would let me put one since we try to keep the moisture WAY AWAY from the foundation of the house.

Rain chains. Hmmmmm. This is new...I like!

Thank you Miss Becca for visiting me today and your encouraging and sweet comments as always. And even while you are away in Seattle (lucky you). I have always wanted to see Seattle. My husband has been there on business, but I have not been. Some day!

Have a wonderful time away!

I wish that I had one of these yesterday because it was pouring rain here. They are beautiful.

Dianne said...

These are so beautiful! And Yes, they are art!

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

So you are having a wonderful time, and yes the rain has held off a little in honour of your visit.

Round here, in the Wet Coast, we think of rain chain, as days, and days, of constant rain. The novelty is worn thin here.....LOL.

I have never seen such beautiful rain chains before! Maybe I should get one - then I wouldn't suffer so much during the next rainy summer! ;-)

Clare said...

Oh the water sound did get me as I was listening to a podcast and thought the person being interviewed was very rude to be making tea - lol. These aArt rain chains are so beautiful - what a lovely idea.

Jaymi said...

these are such beautiful, unique shots. I love the first one!

Katy Noelle said...

Hi, Becca!

I've had such a lovely little visit! Your kitten is ADORABLE (I'm sure you're completely surprised by this news! =D) The 'story' of the kitten meeting your two other cats is so cute!

I just want to tell you that your autumn colors - the colors of all of your crafts and photos - they're so beautiful! I love color so much and it's been very refreshing. A feast for the eyes!

Hope your trip is everything that you need and want it to be and more!

I would love to try one in my garden, they look so neat. Lovely shots Becca. I hope you have a wonderful week, my dear friend.

Pamela said...

I love these rain chains Becca!!!
Your new profile photo is just gorgeous!!!
It has not rained that much here which is quite unusual for November.
We move in less than 2weeks and I am working way too much!!!
When is your birthday??? I hope I didn't miss it!!!

I love that owl on your last post!

Gillian Olson said...

I love these rain chains, I haven't seen a lot here which is odd because it rains a lot here (especially this time of the year).

Tracy said...

This art, oh yes, it is... rain in itself is art, I think. :o) I love rain chains. I've been wanting one, but have not seen them here. I wonder how that would be bringing one of those through customs at the airport nowadays... LOL... Hope you're having a great time away, Becca ((HUGS))

Mila said...

Es precioso me gustan todos y sobre todo el sonido del agua y la lluvia,me relaja mucho,en parte tambien soy como una niña pequeña que le encanta la lluvia y su sonido,estos dias aqui en Barceloa ( españa ) esta lloviendo sin parar y me encanta ese sonido.

Fun! I'll bet Lucy was glad to have you back home. Those rain chains must have come in handy today! And there was frost on our n'bor's roof this morning. BRRRRR!

I LOVE the colors of these rain chains. So very pretty! Hope your trip is going/has gone well. ??? :) Happy weekend wishes, Tammy

justine said...

I've never seen these before, I love them! the water looks amazing on them and beautifully photographed.

Terrie said...

Some great images! AND, the sound is much more pleasing than the music some sites force on us - besides, I live in Seattle, so these sounds are all to familiar! Thanks for the visit.

Catherine said...

Very nice and decorative.

Becky Shander said...

I haven't heard of rain chains before...thanks for the tip. And I hope you're enjoying your travels.

Catherine said...

These rain chains are so cool! I want one! Hmmmmm......I wonder if they make snow chains......

xo Catherine

Linda said...

These are fascinating Becca...and beautiful too. I would love one!
(Or two ;-)

I love the idea of the rain chain rather than a downspout from the gutters.
