Chippy Vintage Window Box Centerpiece

A few weeks ago, when we were in "unpack more boxes" mode, versus our current "let's get the camper ready" mode, I was able to find my old windowbox that I used for so long in my previous Dining Room.

I love this thing... it's old, chippy, and full of vintage charm. I had used it for several years at the old house, changing it out for each season. Here it is empty. I usually line it with grapevine wreaths or brown grocery bags wadded up, to give the flowers something to hold on to.

Here it is filled with a variety of faux Hydrangeas, back where it belongs.

Above pic with no accent twigs, but I added them in here.
I'm not sure if they are too much.
I kind of like the extra "dimension" they give.

I especially love the soft greens and pinks of the Hydrangeas with the runner I have on the table now; it's such a sweet Springy Toile.

Here's how I've used this windowbox in the past.
I think this one from the Fall, a few years ago is my absolute favorite.

Late Summer with Sunflowers

Summer with White Geraniums 

And even earlier with hydrangeas and a few nests.

Then Christmas
It had a lot going on with this version.

And back to the present again.
It's one of my favorite pieces to play with.

More on the Dining Room this week.
and I'll take a few pics of my Hydrangeas we planted at Easter.
They're coming along...no deer yet.

Thanks everyone that commented on my Happy Camper post.
My presence was required this weekend to get it ready for camping.
I hope we'll be able to get that baby on the road soon.
