Terracotta splendor ...

The perks of being in India around this time of the year are many. Apart from the hulla gulla of all the festivals and fun , there is another  reward ...the surprises that lay in abundance along the side walks and streets of India .One such find especially during Diwali are the Terracotta or baked earth goodies !!
I am very much fascinated by terracotta and the orange earthy color it carries....it instantly transfers any  spot in our home into a visually attractive place.The earthy color mixed with  few greens can bring the nature inside into our living space .
Sharing with you all today are few of those goodies that I picked while on an evening drive in Delhi :-)

These can be hung on the patio or the entrace.I chose to put the at the entrance..



Looks gorgeous at night with all the other usual lights turned off.a candle or as I have done ..I've put a string light.


Added some more colors on them myself :)


What do you say ?:-) Don't they all look cute.There were so many more , But I restricted myself from any more purchase ...I often end up acting like a kid on a candy shop :))
Thankyou all for the warm Diwali wishes .
More hugs coming through :)
