After I left the festivities, I went by a friend's house to check out his yard & take some pictures. I can't tell you how many times I drive by just to look at his yard -- I'm sure the neighbors think I'm a stalker. It's just an amazing yard. Check out the front porch. He has hung plates & a shelf with terra cotta pots on it and twig furniture.
This is one of several succulent wreath that he wintered over. They are so amazing. I purchased everything to make one so if I get it done, I'll take a picture & post it.
Here's another shot of the front porch. Everything is so unexpected but looks so homey.
