I just love Terra-Cotta. I even painted my first apartment in a Terra-Cotta color. The apartment manager was not too happy, but I was.....:) Since Terra-Cotta containers and saucers are so affordable and, for that matter, must of us have a few pieces hanging around the garage, reuse them as the perfect table setting and/or as a cake stand. What about as a bird bath? A dish garden? The end result is that you re-purposed your Terra Cotta into something fashionable and as an accessory inside or outside.
