My Favorites

 These are my favorites from the last big button score.  I always save the carved, dyed and odd-shaped MOP.  I got so many ordinary white mother of pearl buttons in the last junk score that my jars runeth over and really need to list some of those on Etsy.  Up until now I have only parted with the dark ones but, seriously, how many plain MOP buttons do I need??  Oh wait, doesn't the one with the most buttons win??
 These rhinestone buttons are all plastic.  I do love those cream colored ones!
 Vegetable ivory and the three at the bottom are metal.  I'm not sure what the black material is on the two with the pearl centers.  I think it is actually a cuff button.
 The glass buttons.  I have never had one like the beige one with the speckles.  It is painted glass.
A nice little pile of plastic buttons.  My favorite is the Lucite one at the bottom right side.  It looks like confetti inside it.  You can click all of the pictures bigger for a closer look.
Love love the button treasure hunt!

More great buttons. The confetti one is fun. I like the red and silver pair on that plate too. Are you going to Plucky to hunt treasures?

I'd have a hard time parting with any of these!
