A few years ago, my husband and I bought a falling-down Governor’s mansion in Connecticut. It’s a crazy story. We’re not even handy. But I fell in love with it the moment I walked through the front door. It’s bigger and grander than any house we imagined would be ours. I kept a blog of our adventure at Bringing Back Holleywood. The place is called Holleywood, named for Governor Holley who built it in 1853. This month, it’s the cover story for This Old House magazine. How did that happen? A few years ago, a local photographer stopped by, asking if he could take pictures of the house and submit them to editors. Later, I asked John to take my author photo. Because– he makes old things look good.
