Welcome, New Friends!

Hello and Welcome to HOMEWARD Found!
 Many of you are arriving here on my [brand spanking NEW] blog today via links from facebook.  
Some are arriving thanks to my friend, Anne Lorys....
 I just can't thank Anne enough for being such a generous girl 
that she's sending her own loyal readers over here to check out my new blog!

Thank you all for visiting!

and scroll down to see posts with great ideas, tips, and inspiration for fall
I have so much MORE to share with you for EVERY season! 
__________________________________________________________
To thank everyone for visiting me
I'm going to give away one of my original creations, 
a 'Sweet Sweater Pumpkin', to one of YOU!

[anonymous comments not eligible to win]
At the end of this week, I'll announce a winner!

THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. 
Thank You!

Don't worry if you don't win - 
I'm going to be selling my pumpkins right here on the blog VERY SOON!
______________________________________________________________

I don't need to tell any of her readers how incredibly inspiring 'Miss Anne' IS.
But for anyone who doesn't already KNOW her, allow me to share... 
 Anne's Blog is FIONA & TWIG

Though I have known OF her, and certainly of her beautiful photography and blog, 
I only 'met' Anne a few months ago while working on a story about her for FOLK Magazine.
We've enjoyed getting to know one another, have SO much in common, 
and are really looking forward to the day when we will actually meet in person.

Writing a feature about Anne, her life, her photography, her blog, and her creativity was a breeze.
The photos that Anne sent to me to use in the story, the thoughtful answers she gave to my questions, 
the way she generously shared her own and history with me... this woman is pure heart

It has been an honor to tell her story to the world through this feature, 
and most importantly, it is an honor to call her my friend.
I've truly enjoyed writing for FOLK Magazine for the past year.
My regular column and occasional editorial contributions are something I am very proud of,
and I hope for the opportunity to continue to submit freelance work. 

But the BEST part of this gig has been the PEOPLE whom I have met along the journey...
writers, photographers, designers, creative artisans, main street merchants, all people like Anne
who are proud of their abilities, lives, communities, country, and friends, 
and who work hard to be a blessing to everyone they come across. Anne certainly is.

Miss Anne is hosting a giveaway on her blog
connected to this feature and also her own article published in this issue of FOLK.
Make sure you visit her blog so that you can enter to win her great prizes.  

...and tell her that Deb sent you!
