Whats on your counters?

Just wondering as we finish cleaning up the kitchen.... what's on your counters? We have been hard at work striping the 90's sponge wallpaper in our kitchen all weekend. We even decided to take out our backsplash that was embellished with southwest patterns and fish. We replaced the tile with a white rectangle, nothing fancy. As I was cleaning up all the mess of painting, and laying tile, I was wondering... what to leave on my counters? I always have comments from my father and husband, that it looks like no one lives here. I hate to have clutter on my counters, but what is a happy balance? I say, a coffee maker, knife block and paper towel holder are all I really need. SO..... just wondering.... What's on your counters?

I have a vintage kitchen aid stand mixer in yellow that matches the original appliances. (replaced my daughter's pink breast cancer awareness one) There's a very large Cuisinart toaster with a vintage shape. I have some stainless steel cylinders that hold often used utensils. I might suggest a fruit bowl. Maybe a stack of Bauer mixing bowls?

Behind the range I have a stainless utensil caddy, stainless S&P shakers, and a dish I uses as a spoonrest. To the right I have a ca. 1915 A&C clock and a 1931 piece of Rookwood pottery. There is also presently a knife block, and I hate those knives (they came with DH) so I am trying to figure out a way to get rid of them.
