Wordless Wednesday


  1. * *THIS IS CALLED A RAINSTICK--it's made from dried, dead cactus [most always --sometimes bamboo is used] with small pebbles inserted in the hollow area and sealed. Turning it up and down, the sound emitted from it sounds like gentle rainfall. Legend has it when in use during certain ceremonies, the spirits of rain are called upon. Origin is believed to be from Chile in South America

  2. yes, we have one of those too. My kids love to hear the sound of "falling rain" happy WW.

  3. I saw one of these once. I love the sound they make!

  4. Oh wow! :)
