Antique Mirror & Powder Box, and Dan Fixed My Plug-Ins!

My mom just gave me these.  She's had them a long time.





I can remember her having them before I remember many other
household items or furniture pieces that she has now.





I'm not sure how old they are really, but I do love
the swirls of green and brown 
in the shell in-lay....and the fact that I remember them from my childhood.

I love the brown stain on the mirror.




These long handled mirrors are hard to find now, I think,
especially in a two piece set.





The weather here is trying to decide what it wants to do...
be warm, or be cool.




The days are getting warmer, but the nights are still in the teens.
Just waitin' for that first green bud to appear.
I have cabin fever really bad...
so I went to the thrift store today and bought some antique furniture 
that they just happened to have on the floor.  Got the pick of the litter today.
Will have to share my finds, soon...they are good ones!





Obviously, I am back online as Dan fixed my plug-ins.  
He had to re-down load Chrome and then magically right-clicked the top of the screen-- where there was no button anyway (I think he found it by accident)-- and a little white box appeared 
that walked one through disabling plug-ins.
Always somethin'.

Did he disable all plug-ins or was there one in particular that was causing problems?
