Windowbox Centerpiece

I've been slowly cleaning out the stashes of "stuff" that I've had piled in my garage for the last couple of years. Each week I'll take a few things over to Relics to add to my booth space. But even though I've looked at this particular item each week, I just haven't been able to load it in the car and let it go.

I've been wanting to do something different with the table top in the Dining Room for a while now, but just didn't know what that would be. I love my large French Wire basket, but was wanting something summery and chippy white...hmmmmm...
I knew just what to try.

This is an old handmade window box that I found quite a few years ago,
haven't used it, but couldn't let it go.
Anyone else out there with this same dysfunction?

It's kinda clunky and big, but for now I needed a change.
This helps bring a little "cottage-y" feel to this space.
(as I'm looking at this I see I need to invest in some new faux ivy)

Love the scalloped bottom.

This is the "backside", but still charming and chippy!

A nosy little someone, has to come and inspect anything new or different.

She will pose for the camera, but won't look me in the eye.
That way if I tell her to get down, she can pretend she didn't hear me.

...sorta like a kid...

If you haven't checked out Monday Marketplace,
just scroll down to the next post, I am keeping it open all week.
This is for Etsy Shop and Online Boutique links.
Take a minute and browse thru, there are some wonderful items listed.

Yesterday, I changed out one of my Blogher ads
and my whole blog fell apart.
So I apologize if you were trying to link up in the midst of the chaos.
I think I'm running OK now...

I'll be partying here this week.
