No buttons, no waterpik. But I do intend to get one in the near future.

I have boxes of buttons..lol I use to have a water pick thingy made by the University of Houston dental school. It attached to your faucet and you could adjust it to whatever power you wanted. It was so much better than a Water Pic. I really wish they would start making them again. lol..I use my shower massager now.

Katie, that does sound neat. They make Christmas ornaments using all sorts of buttons in [of all places] Anchorage Al. With all the things they could use for ornaments I've walked into stores there around the holidays and was pleaseantly surprised and fascinated looking at them.
One thing I have discovered in my constant quest for trucking into thrift stores for the hard to find rare items is....buying buttons in those places, they are very expensive.
Like many dollars per package of just a few.
They can be so unique and so beautiful though, wish they still made 'em like they used to. It's worth buying a coat at a junk store just for the buttons alone.

There's not a lot you can do with just one button middie. (You do know I love you don't you! I only tease unmercifully the ones I love!)
