What Should I Put on My Porch Open Ledge? Advice, please!

We've been in the house for 3 years now, and it's suddenly bugging me. We have this open "window" in one wall of our portico/porch, and it suddenly seems so empty and sparse. Any advice for what can I put in that space that will look good, and won't: A) be stolen easily, B) tip over and get smashed. Aside from a hanging basket of flowers, which is fine in the summer, what do we DO with this ledge and open space on the porch?

Any suggestions about what item we could put there (a cast iron pot?) that would look good, and not become damaged by ice and snow that may fall on it, would be very welcome! Photos below at this website (honestly, they're there)...

That's prefect for seasonal decorations.

Look at amazon.com for:
Cressida Glassware Signature Spectacular Earth Series Blue, Deep Brown and **** Leaf 24-Inch by 10-Inch Rectangular Tall Abstract Fused Glass Vase
You wouldn't have to change it at all......

Or hanging metal artwork made from non rusting material such as aluminum or stainless steel as not to get stain marks on the ledge.
