My new lamp and pillows

This past weekend we stayed overnight with some friends that live in Minneapolis. They of course live near all sorts of wonderful stores that I don't have near me. I had never been to Marshall's before, which is very similar to TJ Maxx. I found these super cute paisley print pillows for only $15, which was a steal for two pillows!  I am hoping to add more pillows so I don't have to divide them up between the couch and the love seat.  For now, I added just the plain blue pillow to balance it out.

I also found this lamp for $40 at Marshalls.  I had a hard time picking a lamp and it's not like I could easily bring it home, try it out and return it. 

I needed something to put on the table with my lamp.  I went on to The Graphics Fairy Blog and found these cute pictures to print out and put in frames. 

I also happened upon this picture at Hancock Fabrics the other day. Can you believe it was only $5! Yes, five dollars. It isn't the most awesome picture ever but I liked it because it had hydrangeas on it and I needed something new for the living room anyways.

And here it is after a coat of paint on the frame:

Here is a picture of part of the living room with all my new accessories, what do you think?  Should I add more to the wall and if so, what should I add?

I still am not sure of the pillows with my curtains, it's not bad but maybe drop cloth curtains like the ones featured here would be better?  I can use the curtains in the living room in the dining room instead so they won't go to waste!  ;)

I also redid the mantel and came up with this, (pretend you can't see the fan blade in the mirror):
