Small and Artless....No more?

In an episode of season 6 of Sex and the City, "The Russian" says to Carrie that her apartment is exactly like her.  To which she replies, "Small and artless?"
That's where we were at since moving in but I put some art up that I picked up in my travels (shopping trips) the past month or so, and here is the results.  So far...
Fun "Winnie the Pooh" lights I got from Garage Sale in the summer that are stung above the kitchen sink.
2 little chotchkies for my kitchen ledge.  I love the red! Both from Michael's.  Photo for frame is pending. (That is not a rectal thermometer as I had guessed. Dallas said it's to check the internal temperature of meat...fancy!)
 Home sweet HOME (also from Michael's)
Everyone needs a peacock for the kitchen, right? (Michael's)
 From Value Village and now keeping cozy in our kitchen.
Some charcoal sketching by Ava (with a frame from Dollarama) that resides on a wall between kitchen and bathroom.
A pretty flower for the powder room. (Michael's)
A new table and lamp nook (c/o Granny) for our pink Christmas tree and Hello Kitty winter figurines (and to add more light into our front room which has no above-head lighting...yet!).
 A beautiful piece from Home Sense.  The colours are amazing.
It stands alone on a bare wall in the living room (Hi Ava!) but I have big plans for it to be surrounded by other pieces and some photography.
Because frankly the wall is enormous and the "daycare" room (our front room where you walk in) needs some colour and jazzing-up.  Wouldn't you say?
