What's On Your....Kitchen Counter

Next up in the series "What's On Your..." we're sharing what's on our kitchen counters.   Most weeks the only thing that is only our kitchen counter is a big bowl of fruit, lots of our favorite olive oil, a bottle of wine and dish soap.  (As a matter of fact, once we were enjoying dinner with friends at our kitchen table, and our friend said, "I have a question, do you guys really go through that much fruit and olive oil?!"  We're obsessed!  I can tell looking at these pics below I've got some work with accessorizing to do!  Things are looking a little bare, and I know I'd like to at least add a few plants.  A few pics of what's on my kitchen counter below, and also I shared more pictures of my kitchen renovation here if you're interested!

The one pic above left is really difficult to see, but it's one of my favorite parts.  This area isn't really my kitchen counter - it's really a butler's pantry but I still love it.  I keep a growing collection of glass tumblers here, perfectly in pretty sight and reach for J.D. to make me an evening cocktail!

Thanks Sarah for organizing!  I can't wait to see everyone's.  I know I need to add some accessories to give the kitchen a little more warmth so I'm hoping to steal a few ideas.  I went to a friends recently and her kitchen had a few BIG potted plants that I loved, so I know that's one thing I'd like to add eventually!
