  1. I've never used terra cotta pots as decoration (or much for planting either since I have a brown thumb). Wouldn't they crack and break as windchimes though?

  2. I would love to paint pots. Love the idea of using them as lamps.! Superb!

  3. I'm a BIG fan of terra cotta, your examples are great. I've used them for a succulent garden on our terrace. It's been so dry here in the south that succulents are about the only thing I can keep alive right now. thanks for sharing!

  4. So many ideas. I love the coasters. That would be a really simple project and can be customized so many ways.

  5. Those are some great ideas! This reminds me to be more creative with my deck garden next spring...

  6. Wow, what a great round up! I can't even begin to pick a favorite.

  7. Love the saucer coasters! What a great way to catch all those Summer drips from the heat melting your ice.

  8. What cute ideas. I love the clay pot, wind chimes.

  9. Love the cake stand! Terracotta pots just never go out of style, they just find new lives. x Julie
