I am thinking this may be a recurring post - there's so many kooky porches. I remember when we were looking at different neighborhoods to buy a house, I told my mom I knew I wanted to live somewhere in the city where you could put mannequins, beads, art, Christmas lights up year round, etc. on your porch and your neighbors wouldn't think you're nuts! Needless to say, I am very happy with our choice! Although unfortunately we don't have a porch!
