Meet Madeleine Whitley, designerBT logo

Beautiful Things – My little boutique is where I can create to my heart’s content.  For as long as I can remember I have been drawing, painting, designing rooms, making displays, crafting, and event design.  It’s been said that if you look at what is on a person’s bookshelf you will discover what they are passionate about.  Mine are filled with all of the above.

While making a living as a restaurant manager my spare time was spent creating and reading everything I could about my passion.  About ten years ago I had had enough of the corporate world.  My husband, George, the wonderful man and free spirit that he is, wholeheartedly supported my decision to open my boutique.  This was so out of my comfort zone but I had to try and Beautiful Things opened its doors.

I discovered along the way that living a creative life was more than just creating, it was a whole new way of thinking.  I was learning that I had to work on myself and change my thinking.  Being an entrepreneur was much different that working for someone.  And, that started another journey that I have found, is just as important as running my business.   flower boxes
While my days are filled with greeting customers, working with brides planning their very special day, and of course shopping for beautiful things this creative journey that I am on is one of the best things that could have happened to me.  To be able to do what I am passionate about and bring beauty and design to someone’s day is something that I am thankful for everyday.

Love is in the air in February!

Madeleine offers some lovely tips on ways to bring more love into your life — by giving more Love!

In school and educational programs, Marla’s focus is to dispel myths and give scientific facts on wildlife. She explains why laws and regulations protect wildlife and wildlife habitats from human pressure and our activities, including criminal acts such as poaching, habitat destruction, species exploitation and how wildlife managemant protects and preserves wildlife and wild life habitats.

The program is produced in a variety of formats that follow the frameworks of school curriculum including the MCAS.

Presentations are one hour in length. Discounts are offered on multiple shows. Programs can also be tailored to the age or grade level of your intended audience.

Topics include natural history, biology, adaptations, habitats, poaching , species exploitation, their managemant and why and how the laws and regulations protect them.

She is a well known lecturer in Southeastern Massachusetts and has expanded her interest into the art of falconry the ancient sport of hunting wild game with a raptor, raptor rehabilitation specializing in osprey rehab and great horn owls and research for raptor conservation.

As a naturalist and falconer Marla strives to bring an understanding of biodiversity to people by allowing them to meet some interesting and fascinating animals trusted in her care by wildlife agencies, state and federal. As ambassadors of the wild, these animals  through Marla, tell their story and this understanding presents reasons why we must preserve, protect and appreciate the wonders of nature and life itself whether we use it as a renewable resource or not.
