Above the Cabinets OR not?

I left the space above my cabinets bare for the first year we lived here…..I actually enjoyed the clean lines but decided to spice it up for awhile.
I just adore the mix of aqua, red and white.  
So I shopped the house to find items to plug up there:
Enamelware is one of my fav finds!
Vintage kitchenware with red or aqua handles
Coke and 7 Up crates
Glass jars

The picture below shows an AWESOME wire basket which is the perfect shade of aqua!

On the counter I’ve got some vintage tins which actually instead of holding sugar & coffee hold bubble gum & puppy treats.
