Random People Rock!

Sorry that its been so long since I've blogged. Our grant application has been turned in and we are in a holding pattern until July when the results are announced. We haven't done any work lately on the house as we have been busy volunteering for the city. Kevin and I are helping to plan the Charles Town Heritage Festival so house stuff has taken a back seat. Now that the festival plans are off to a good start we are going to get back to the restoration project at hand...

Today we got a surprise in the mail. An anonymous package arrived addressed to "Restoration of Walnut Manor" Inside was a card that read,

"In memory of those who have blessed the Brown-Shugart home with their presence. May these memories bless your family. Thank you for restoring such a magical place as it has touched he hearts and lives of many."

Inside the card was a large donation of cash with a note that read "Weathervane? for restoration"

We don't know who sent this generous gift but we are so thankful for the donation to the cause of restoring this beautiful Victorian treasure! I do not have the words to express my gratitude for this wonderful gift...

The weathervane is truly our crowning jewel and now we might actually be able to have it remade!

Thank you, thank you, thank you whoever you are!
