Bridget Brown and I share a few things: creative businesses started as young ladies in the Berkshires, sons the same age, wanderlust, an appreciation of good beer and dance music, and a prioritized sense of adventure and high-jinx.

We met as single mothers of young sons and have known each other for quite some time – long enough for both our boys to tower over us!  She is an artist of the finest eye.  To say the girl has a green thumb is an understatement.  She grows, arranges, and sells the Berkshires’ most amazing floral arrangements – really, I have never seen her sensibility elsewhere.  She is a gentle fighter – stands up and says what is right.

Now for our Holiday Shindy, she will be offering Christmas trees, greenery, centerpieces, and the like.  Be prepared to get everything you need in that department right here – and if you want to get a jump on it, give her a call, if she is not booked already, maybe she’ll come over and decorate for your Holiday party!
