Countertop changes and weekend finds

I seem to get bored with my countertops and rearrange when I do a good cleaning. Anyone else love the way they decorate and then in a few weeks/months ...whatever, not thrilled with it anymore? So I thought my cake carriers, which are NOT in perfect condition, but cute, would look good combined with my cannisters on the countertop. This brown formica is not my favorite thing, but I rent, so, I try to cheer it up with a lot of color. Pay no attention to the top drawer, which has needed repaired for at least a year now! I finally just nailed it shut! I guess someday I'll focus on that!

1st pickin's green beans in my pink colander
My beans are growing and I picked some over the weekend. This is my new/vintage pink colander I found! I added quite a few more beans this morning, and think I'll cook em up!

Speaking of pink plastic and cannisters, look at these beauties I picked up over the weekend!

And this clock!
I also found a stash of Life magazines, and need to go back and get more. I had to get Jackie O., plus the ads are strictly MAD MEN worthy!

Almost ALL booze or cigarettes!

Well, I gotta go to work, so I'll check in later! Have a great day!

I don't decorate much in my kitchen. Almost no counter tops. I love all the pink you keep finding! I could see me with a Pink kitchen one of these days...dreaming! Hope you have a good week. Hugs, Linda

I do the same thing! When I get tired of the set up I have on my countertops, I redecorate. My husband always says, "you redecorating AGAIN?!" Lol! They just don't understand!

Thanks Mick! We seriously need to get you up to Kansas City!! Denise, they don't get it, but that's ok! My son was here around the time I decorated for Christmas last year, and he totally thinks I am off my rocker when I decorate all the rooms. Oh well!

Yes, Linda, I fantasize about a pink kitchen, but right now on red! Some day, maybe. I still have the pink and grey formica table stashed away!
