Graduation and Holidays

The Gnomes and I are very excited.  My daughter, Sarina, just graduated with a Master's in Historic Preservation from the University of Maryland.  Here she is right after getting her degree -

But even more exciting than graduating, she is moving back to Granite Falls to implement some of her ideas in her final project, "Bridging Preservation and Economics in Granite Falls, Minnesota."  She has a job working with Granite Falls Riverfront Revitalization and CURE . Sarina will also be living in and restoring our old church building. 
We are spending Christmas in Virginia with her and our other daughter. So the Gnomes have Holt House all to themselves, hope they clean up their Christmas feast when they're done! 


  1. Merry Christmas!! I wish you ALL the best for 2012!!! Looking forward to seeing more of your gorgeous work!

  2. So good to hear from you, has been awhile. happy New Year, Richard from My Old Historic House.


The Gnomes and I love to read your comments!
