Terracotta love at home

Simple ways in which we could bring terracotta art into our homes.Terracotta items definitely bring a cheer and a way different from the usual.A keen sense of aesthetics will help you incorporate these items in your daily life.

Some of those that brought warmth to our home...
Plumerias floating in a terracotta uruli brought smile on everyones face and fragrance in the air.,
Terracotta hanging lamp and small uruli ,a horse and a lantern with some dry arrangement ,home down south
Pink Bougainvilleas and pink watermelon juice,a time to put your feet high and indulge in reading
who doesnt love drinking chai from a desi cup?
some horses and a dry arrangement on a centre table,home down south
Can you all see the ganeshjis hiding under the leaves,they are there right down..
terracotta tiles on the courtyard,at home
a collection of shells and flowers in the corner of a room,float some flowers along the shells...

some cranes in the garden,painted ones ..and the tall jug,home down south
chimes on the grills,home down south

The warmth of the clay items and the burnt smell of the baked items have been definitely passed over to your homes from mine.I hope you all will start incorporating these small items in your decor and nurture the art..Simple things and great decor ...
