Blog Doctor gives a clean bill of health!


Well, the blog doctor
look my laptop and blog away
this week for a few days 
and finally....
a clean bill of health.

Finally!

(Thanks so much to so many of you 
that sent me great ideas on how 
to resolve the malware issues 
and for the well-wishes.
An extra special thank you 
to Emily at TheFrenchHutch
and her husband who 
went above and beyond
to help me out! Thanks Emily!)

I truly appreciate it.


How cute is this little enamel bathtub that I found?


The dealer that I bought it from said he found it at a flea market in Budapest, Hungary.

It is a salesman's sample and is only five little inches long.

We are using it as a salt cellar with some little
antique cellar spoons from my sweet mother-in-law. 

Kind of cute, don't you think?

Glad to hear you got that all resolved, Alison! I know when I have issues with my laptop I can feel lost, and not just for my blog, but for everything else I do on it. Cute little bathtub; I would love to find all the things they made up as samples for the salesman long ago. What great little collections they must make.

Glad your blog is all better.

Yes, mini versions of many things are so sweet. I'd be cuter in a smaller version, too! :)
