I found some Noro silk garden on sale at a LYS and they only had 1 skein of this particular color so I bought it not knowing what I would do with it -- later on I decided it would be perfect to practice making buttonholes.  below are the results:

Side view white buttons: (ha! with knit potholders in the background!)

ok my camera sucks and cut off the buttons -- here is the front view

view with both buttons:

and lying flat:

there you have it.  It was a really simple and fast project -- if anyone is interested I can post the pattern I made up for this.
Thanks for looking!   Cheesy

sure guys - here you go:

I used size 8 needles - finished measurements 7" wide x 18" long - and of course 1 skein of Noro

CO 30 sts

R1: K2, P2, K to last 4 sts, P2, K2
R2: P2, K2, P to last 4 sts, K2, P2
(repeat these 2 rows till you get desired length to make buttonholes - mine I did at 16 3/4")
Buttonhole row - K2, P2, K to where you want your 1st buttonhole, *BO2 sts, K 3(you can change according to your spacing preference) sts* continue that until you have desired buttonholes and pick up remaining pattern till end of row.
Finish buttonhole row - P2, K2, P to where you have the 1st BO then *CO 2 sts, P3,* continue that until you have finished buttonholes and pick up remaining pattern till end of row.
Continue working R1 and R2 till desired length

As for button placement -- I played with it for a while before I decided where to make the buttonholes and then later where to place the buttons.  There is room for a lot of leeway and fun.

Enjoy the pattern and please post your results here so we can all see!   Cheesy

Yay a pattern would be awesome...my mum's just in the process of knitting me a noro wrap-over cardi! However - she always buys the right amount of whatever the recipe asks for she ALWAYS ends up with one left over which she never wants to take back!!

I'm just learning - I've made up scarves and teddies with her leftovers so this would be a great accompanyment to the cardi, and something different to make!

About to post and the pattern arrives - thank you!!

Um, I love this with a passion that's sort of unholy.

You're really talented - and, obviously, have a freakishly good eye for cool buttons.

aww! you guys are the cutest ever - i am so glad you like this!

the buttons came from this super cute store in the lower east side called Bocage.  the girl that owns it (stephanie) is super cute as well.  she pointed me in the direction of the colored buttons.
