New Addition to the family...No Name Kitty..update Pippi Longstocking it is :)

My daughter Cara has been asking,begging actually for a kitten. Two dogs and one cat are just not enough. She has been visiting the Mill in our town who always have kittens for adoption,texting me picture messages of the one she just HAS to have.
I'd heard that my friend Mel has kittens for free..and they are just ready to go to new homes now. They were actually born on my birthday May 31st. So seven weeks old today..so sweet!
I stopped in Saturday to have a sneak peek at them ..and took Cara back on Sunday. I new these kittens were raised in a great loving home and the mommy is so cute,how could I resist? So here we were (even no name came along)at Walmart at 9:30pm buying a new litter box and dishes etc. The kitten food had already hopped into my grocery cart earlier yesterday.
Now we need a name..with 3 daughters all my fav names have already been used..We are leaning towards Alley,I liked Maggie, Bunny or Caramel as it was appropriate seeing it is Cara's kitten and Mel gave her to us,also she is orange and beige..and a female which is rare in itself. 75% of orange cats are male...
so here she is No Name Kitty
we love her already :))) So far Sunny our 8yr Golden,couldn't care less,Chicken our 7yr old Calico,has ran away under a bed,and Buster our 8 month Oldde English Bulldogge has yet to meet her..yikes! It's a zoo!

Highlights from Flamboro Antiques Show

Yesterday Paul and I (yup even sleep in girl) got up at 5am and went to Milton for the Flamboro Antiques Show.Here are some of the goodies we saw ...This awesome ,original paint,square nailed,primitive,pine slant back cupboard really wanted to come home with us but it was $1500 :S ouch
this chimney cupboard was the reason we went. A dealer that I'd given my card to at Christie called to let us know he was doing Flamboro and the door we liked would be there,and that he had 2 chimney cupboards we'd like as well.

this wicker set was early and in great shape,$400
nice Nova Scotia table with birds eye legs only $125more corbels $75 each also at Christie
love this cupboard happens to be one of Pauls friends..hmm
I am regretting not buying this barn door now....
this white cupboard was a MUST HAVE!! and the shutters below I spotted at Christie and they were priced better too! (Back away from the door girls LOL) 
this door was also at Christie for $40 more..the window is original
Great hoosier love the zinc top it was $600 good deal
some of these things came home with us!! If I only had a million $$$$$$$$$$
love this blue chair,might have to take it home!
