We all want to put our fingerprint on our home and when we add a personal touch, like she does, it changes our whole surroundings. I can relate to doing things like this because I have done a lot of these and they change the whole look of my patio…for the better!
I’m all about everything bright and colorful, and, although I have beautiful plants there’s nothing better than making the pots they are planted in pop with color. I believe in keeping everything interesting (and colorful).
It’s amazing what you can do with a clay pot and they can literally be an extension of us and what we love. I painted a bright red pot with all types of colorful flowers on them, then I painted a pot white and painted a colorful design on it that has a Mexican Folk Art look. I love Mexican art, by the way. I’ve got pots with leopard print, a large black on with poppies painted on it and if you look real close you can see a bee on one of the flowers. I have lots of plants so I’m still coming up with new and different designs for my clay pots.
It’s so much fun to express ourselves through art! It gives me a great feeling of accomplishment, and if you haven’t done this, you will understand what I’m talking about when you do.
