Fun with buttons and a new addition!

I'm going through my sister's things. She had an antique shop that was closed after 20 years in the business. Everything has sat in a trailer in my parents yard for a very long time now so I am grabbing stuff out and listing it on ebay. I figure to use the money to fund a vacation for all of us (my parents, sister and her girls and the boys and I). So far I've made enough money to go to the Amana Colonies about an hour and half from here and buy everyone a lunch:)
I helped my Mom and Dad list some more of my Dad's buttons. He must've been feeling American or Pepsi with this design.

More fun with my Dad's buttons. He did very well on his last set so we just put more on ebay. I had to share with you this tray that my Dad designed. Can you make out the smiley face?
In other non-ebaying news, my husband forbid my mother from bringing home a kitten from a flea market for my 7 year old son. Of course it was "free" and he turned on the water works for Grandma. So we got a new kitten. He is so cute with smokey grey fur and blue eyes! I will post a picture of him when my camera battery gets recharged. Oh and by the way who does the kitty like best? If you guessed my husband you'd be right! Hee Hee!

Why do they always go to the person that least wants them?! THat is so funny. I guess they sense that person will not grab and squeeze and kiss them all over. Ha ha. Kittens are the cutest. Love the button designs.

I la'love the buttons! I'm sure there are a lot of creative things that you can do with them! What about book marks? Anyhoo, someone on ebay will enjoy them. How fun to go through all of that stuff! And'a! I can't wait to see a picture of the new kitten! Cats are so self sufficient they're wonderful as pets. Just invest in an automatic litter box (it will be WELL worth it!), and then you'll have little work to do. :-)
