Favorite Nook

Just wanted to share with you a little nook in our living room.

Classical guitar I've had since forever! My brother Tony gave it me. 

The plant was sent to me almost three years ago from my mom's nursing home. They

sent it to me when she passed away. 

The lantern was a Christmas gift this year from my friend Lisa. She had used lanterns for decorations at her daughter's wedding this past October.

This space is where I had the Barbie tree. When I took it down I just missed having the greenery so put these favorite things together to help perk me up. 

I'm going to need it as the weather is just awful! Really cold. They are saying it is suppose to be -2 by Tuesday. Say it with me BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

I really need to talk hubby into moving to TX.
