Internet friends

Today's post is a little different than usually. I wanted to talk about some of my friends that I've found through the internet. And I can even say that one of them is one of my best friends even today.
I met him almost 10 years ago in one chat place. We started talking and found out that we have a lot in common. He is a very interesting guy and talking to him is never boring. He has a great sense of humour and is a great cook :) He lives in Estonia so yes, we have met ;)
Another friend that I met through the internet has also a great sense of humour (I guess I'm drawn to that! LOL) but I'm sad to say we don't talk as much as we did when we first met. We both lead busy lifestyles but still write on occasion. We have also met a couple of times, he lives in the UK and he came to visit me (twice) and we also had a holiday together with my hubby and his girlfriend in Italy years ago. Miss him a lot sometimes.

But this post is dedicated to Debbie from The Wug's Backyard who I met about a year and a half ago (if I remember correctly :D). She is always so supportive and funny and her blog is an excellent reading material! It will have you smiling for hours! :) She is also really good at crocheting and I have the privilege to own two of her scarves (I ordered one but she also sent me another pretty scarf for free :D) and one cute flower pin :)

Mine! All mine! :P

The reason why I am writing about this is because I'm so happy that I got a gift from her with Sunflower seeds :)

She also included a cute little thank you card :)

Might not seem much to most of you but it's the little things that make me happy and when you think about it: they are seeds now but wait until the grow and get BIG :D There will be so much to be happy about then!
We were talking about the seeds last year and I was asking if they still have those seeds in the shop and that I would like to order one pack. But they were all out. And now this spring her hubby remembered that I was interested in the seeds and went and bought me a pack and then Debbie sent it to me from the other side of the planet and didn't even ask me for money... I know it didn't cost a lot of money but still, these kinds of simple gestures are so nice and heartwarming :) So I just wanted to say thank you, Debbie, for being my friend and my seed supplier! :))

I will share some of the items that I love from her shop

This next scarf is really gorgeous!

You can find more about her from her blog and her Etsy shop!

Thank you, my internet friends, for making me smile each and every day! :)


  1. Awwwwwwwww!! ;'_'; You made me cry with this one!! I guess we sometimes take for granted how important the little things are, huh?!...Well, it was my pleasure!! I have an ulterior motive anyway. I can't wait to see you photograph those beautiful sunflowers!! :-) Just wait till you see them in person!! They're 'WOWers' for sure!! :-] By the way, thanks for sharing the things from my shop too! That was very sweet of you. :-] Have a good day Little Fox. I know I will now!!

  2. :D You are very welcome, Debbie! I hope they grow in here too! I'm gonna talk to them while planting and say that Aunty Deb wants to see you all grow nice and big so you better get on with it!! LOL

  3. Ha! Ha! Yeah!!! That "talking to" oughta do it!!! ^_^

  4. :))) My grandma always talks to the important plants after she has planted them. The important being the pumpkin, cucumber, tomato and so on. Basically the veggies you eat need to be talked to ;)

  5. What a sweet thing to do. I just love reading Deb's blogs and her poems are fantastic. You are right, she is a VERY sweet lady.

  6. Thank you for the comment, Peg! This was something that I just needed to do :)

  7. Thats really nice of you to have such great friends. Even I was also having one of my best friend in internet but now she has gone a long distance from me. Hope she's doing well in her life.

  8. Thank you for the comment! Is she far away from the internet too? If not then you can still find her there I'm sure :)
