Grannie's Button Box

It comes as a bit of a shock to realise that I am the Grannie who own's this button box!

I have finished my Xmas dress and had to attach a button at the back neck, so, I choose a flower.  (I still love looking at the buttons.)

The only problem is, it is soooo cold!  It is usually hot and steamy at this time of year.  Instead there is a 90km wind blowing in on us.  The children all stand at the end of the jetty so they can dodge the waves as they roll in.  They are all wet through to their skin.  The old people have to have someone either side of them so they can walk and getting onto the ferry is tricky.  A really rough ride home.  And I have my new summery dress.

Hope it warms up by the 25th!

What a lovely dress. A box full of buttons is a treasure!
We've had unusually windy days here in Japan, too. I hope the weather will be perfect for Christmas.

So do I.


I am sure it will, and your dress looks both festive and summery!
