When I moved to Austin some 3 1/2 years or so ago ... some things had to change. The reason ... moving into a smaller house. The result ... less space for the knick-knacks and such. 4 people in a small house is a recipe for clutter just with the day to day things of living. Simply put ... girl, get rid of some stuff. I did, but my need for the kitschy clutter just wouldn't die. Thus was born, the Front Porch of Kitsch ... the place where all things non relevant to living, but necessary, end up. First, I ripped all the plants out of the front planter and installed homemade mushrooms and such. Then came another mushroom, some painted driftwood, and the loveliest of lovely pink flowers. I got this super rad planter ... and tricked it out. Then added lots of fun mini-planters. And finished off the last "inch" of the porch with this fake palm that was my grandmothers. It was always next to her rocker in her living room ... now it's right next to my glider.
