i believe i was one of the lucky first to begin using flickr back in the day. i can't even remember when it all started really but i do remember it was all tied to my beginnings on ebay and then my switch to etsy. there, on flickr, friends gradually began to flock around me. i remember one of my first was jo from australia and through her i met firuzan from turkey. these two women are kindred spirits, part of the yaya sisterhood as jo would say. jo is playful and funny, an inventor of stories around her backyard pond, and a true kitchen aficionado. ofcourse she dresses up
and plays house, serving fairy cakes and lemonade to all who enter her vintage laden home.
jo is the funny one.
firuzan, on the other hand, is the lady, feminine to the hilt, soft, gentle and never out of place.
she, too weaves stories around her rose filled garden, making the most amazing papier mache dolls ever.
and her mother makes rose jam, can you believe? these friends i share with you today, enjoy.
the most beautiful thing about these friends is that i have never met tem in person yet they always remember me, always write to me, always fill me.
more about my chilean friends to come and the many others all over the world thanks to this incredible tool called the inter-net.
