|Bringing Back Holleywood||
A friend going out of town dropped off at Holleywood her ticket to Trade Secrets. Trade Secrets? I asked what was that. "You're going to LOVE it," my friend said and a few days later I discovered how right she was. An annual benefit for Women's Support Services (a domestic violence program), Trade Secrets is THE summer kickoff in the area (Bette Midler was there!), a Gardenpalooza gathering green thumbs and antique collectors as well known as Martha Stewart to the meticulously groomed greens of Lion's Rock Farm in Sharon, where Elaine LaRoche apparently doesn't mind that 1000 cars park on her lawn. Ahem, meadow. The next day is Garden Tours and while there were some lovely options to tour, I only had time for one and (because I'm a huge admirer of her work, did you read what she did for The Falls Village Inn?) beelined for Bunny Williams'.
who we are
We are a couple of Upper West Siders from NYC who never set out to buy an old mansion in Connecticut. But the moment we walked through its massive front door, we were smitten.
