ふなっしーのタティング道具 w このふわもこの引き出し、糸玉入れにぴったりです。リズベスや金票の小さい玉にちょうどいいサイズです。DMCのセベリヤやエミーグランデには小さすぎるけど。I'm using this plush Funassyi drawer unit as a thread ball holder when I tat. It's the perfect size for Lizbeth and the small Olympus Kinhyo no.40 balls. #タティングレース #ふなっしー #tatting #funassyi

We can just see the rooftops of the medieval haut-ville behind the trees from our terrace. #provence #summer #france #livinginfrance

The annual summer sale at Funassyiland starts this Friday, June 23, and will go on until July 31st. Each of the major Funassyi merchandise vendors - Nittele Service, Grey Parka Service and Rapiit - will offer a special lucky bag packed with goodies that aren’t available elsewhere, and many items will be on sale for up to 50% off. Details here on the Funassyiland site. If you live outside of Japan and don’t have a friend there to shop for you (since Funassyiland doesn’t do international orders), check out my articles on shopping services and package forwarding services.

There are lots of videos taken by fans of Funassyi events on YouTube - you can search for ふなっしー (<– just cut and paste). But this one is a bit different,  a sort of behind-the-scenes look by one of the chara themselves, Iisa King. You see the chara ‘relaxing’ after the recent chara festival in Sumida, Tokyo, chatting and taking photos of each other. They’re not actually relaxing for real yet of course, since they are still in their suits in warm weather, but it makes for great photo ops for the fans. Funassyi causes Iisa King some consternation when he mentions that the King and Akkuma (the purple-blue bear) where out having fun the night before in Shinjuku until 3am. Iisa King also makes a remark about how pretty Aicchy looks in her sailor-style school uniform outfit that betrays his age. Even if you don’t get the dialog though, it’s fun to see Funassyi making the rounds with the chara so they can take photos with him, which always helps to boost their Instagram and Twitter view counts.

Spartier à tiges de jonc, called Spanish broom in English, in full bloom, growing between the vines. They grow wild all over this region. The yellow flowers have a sweet fragrance that fills the air, especially in the evenings. Taken on May 28. #provence #vaucluse #summer #france #flowers
