Polka Dotta Terracotta

Since cleaning the craft nook
(corner of the sun porch)
I now what to incorporate those pretty teals and reds through out the rest of the room. 

For so long I have been a country/colonial girl
Always opting for those dark blues, browns and reds
I don't know where this new color palate comes from.
I know exactly where my taste for a new color palate comes from....
I have been inspired by so many Blogs to reach and step outside of my box.
As for now
I want funky
I want Polka Dots!

This is just a basic terracotta pot/ artificial plant
 that I purchased at Michael's a while ago.

I wanted to jazz it up a bit...

Polka Dotta Terracotta

I got these gorgeous fabrics to  make pillowcases and covers for the day bed. 

I still have plenty of prettying up to do
 I promise to show you the whole room once I am through.

Have a great Tuesday!
