Big News – Meet Some Great Folk & a Giveaway!

Drumroll please …

I am excited to announce that i will be a contributing blogger for FOLK.

I recently found out about this fabulous magazine that’s based on living authentically and focusing on the American spirit.


Couldn’t come at a better time – with Hurricane Sandy beating the East Coast and my little town and home.

It’s been exactly one week since we lost power but there is definitely a silver lining …

focusing on the simple things in life.


Which is what FOLK is all about.

  1. Congratulations Kelly! I love Folk and am excited to hear that you will be contributing. I’m so glad you are all okay, but I know being without power is not fun either.

  2. Congratulations! I love Folk magazine. I can’t remember exactly where I’ve seen it before but I believe it was in print. The best part about this magazine and the reason I like it is because – while the pictures appear oh-so-elegant, it does NOT look out of reach for a regular person.

  3. Congrats, Kelly. I didn’t realize so many bloggers I know are contributors. So glad you didn’t have bad storm damage and only power loss. That is awful, too. We take it all for granted until we lose it.

  4. I’m happy you are powered back up, and now you can let the blog world have it via being a FOLK contributor. Take THAT hurricane Sandy!


  5. You are in good company with my friends Vanessa and Jana from Vintage Whites Market. Another couple of great Montana girls! I hope your power is restored and your home didn’t experience any damage.

  6. What do i love about FOLK? Love the simplicity, yet WOW factor of the wreath on the front cover. Would love to win an autographed copy. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  7. I love the beautiful pictures so vivid bright colors just lovely and thank you very much for the giveaway I am going to love the goldfish pillow–sent my address in a email reply!!

  8. Kelly, I love the whole philosophy of Folk. The photography is gorgeous! I can’t wait to subscribe (and buy a Christmas subscription for my mom, too!) And I’m so happy that you’re going to be a Folk blog contributor.

    Do you think I could write a story for them about the worm? Surely that’s made-in-America! 🙂

    Take care and stay warm, my friend.


  9. I am so excited for you Kelly! What a fabulous new adventure…I can’t wait to read and see all that you do. I have news too, and I can’t wait to share…I don’t know how you girls sit on stuff…I feel like I am going to burst at the seems!

  10. Folk, what can you say when you have The Beckam Boys on the cover. Greenery, Red and Snow what else could you ask for. Thanks for such a great giveaway. Di

  11. I must have been living under a rock.. but I am so excited about your new magazine because we need to support our country and its merchants.There are cottage shops popping up all over the country and we need to recycle and re-purpose everything possible and then buy from the local and wonderful people that make up the USA~~ Thanks for putting out a magazine that showcases our American Folk..s
