Funassyi made his annual appearance as Funa Santa on Tuesday, making a surprise visit with Aicchy, Funagoro and Funyassyi at the Sakura Daycare Center in Funabashi. The Pear family distributed early Christmas presents to the children. In this TV news report (alternate link), the kids seem happy, excited and also slightly stunned. ^_^ Later on, Funassyi also made a surprise visit to Funassyiland Funabashi. I’m seriously considering moving to Funabashi…

Even though I don’t like shuttles with built in hooks much, I couldn’t resist this gorgeous shuttle from La Cossette. It came with the tiny pea pod as a bonus! かぎ針付きシャトルは余り好きじゃないんですが、La Cossette さんのシャトルに一目惚れしてポチッてしまいました。ちっちゃいエンドウ豆は何とおまけです! #タティングレース #tattinglace #タティング #タティングシャトル #tatting #tattingshuttle

The release date of The Just Bento Cookbook 2 is slowly but surely approaching! Here’s a closeup of one of the bentos...inspired by an Okinawan dish.

Épeautre (spelt) matza made in the Alsace. Sold at Super-U. As an ex-New Yorker I need a periodic matzo ball soup fix. They don’t sell matzo meal at the local supermarket (they do sell it in Avignon) so we grind up these. #livinginfrance #provence #vaucluse #france #dailyfood <- going to try to remember using this tag

This is a gluten free cookie made with chestnut and rice flours. It’s delicious! It’s made by a biscuiterie (a cookie bakery basically) with the adorable name Les Secrets de Lola in a neighboring town - the owner says it’s an old recipe. He sells an assortment of very old fashioned, homey cookies and the like. This is his only gluten free one. I love the cracks and the fingerprints. Incidentally, the marché people are a whole lot more relaxed and friendly now that the tourists are mostly gone.

My notebook (A5 Leuchtturm 1917 dot grid in black, ye bog standard for you know what) was getting a bit scratched up and tired looking, so I spruced it up with some lace masking tape from Pavilio. It’s good to keep going for another month at least! #leuchtturm1917 #notebook #maskingtape #bulletjournal #stationery #バレットジャーナル #文房具 #irefusetocallitwashi

I sort of do a very loose version of Bullet Journalling. One thing is lots of lists. This one, called “I want...or do I?” is where I note down things I want to get, and why I want it...or not. In the last column I note whether I actually bought it. It has really helped to cut down on late night impulse buying online and the like. #bulletjournal #journal #lists
