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!
