Vintage Sewing Buttons

My latest finds in vintage buttons.

First, my friend sent me these buttons:
Pretty plain and boring huh?  HA, let's take another look!

They are actually blue and aqua!  Both Bakelite.  Thank you Cathy!

Then I found this lot of Bakelite buttons on eBay:
Again, these need a closer look!

The green duck is actually blue.
The brown Pied Piper and Old Mother Hubbard are blue.
The maroon looking key is purple!!  It's my first piece of purple Bakelite.

SCORE!!!!!!! You always get the cool stuff. Nice, and very cool.
I need to learn how to recognize bakelite right away, then maybe I can collect them too. haha
