My pumpkin carving efforts yielded these yesterday!
From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!
May Jack-o-lanterns burning bright
Of soft and golden hue
Pierce through the future’s veil and show
What fate now holds for you.
When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam,
May luck be yours on Halloween.
We’ve had a beautiful resplendent fall Here in Sugar Loaf, NY! Many of the leaves have dropped, but some are still up and colorful, and a few are still green.
Here are a few photos I took at the edge of town last week…
Looking north from Sugar Loaf along the railroad tracks.
Looking back in the opposite direction at the Bostree Studio from the railroad tracks.
The view of the field I was meandering through.
Looking east (yes, east) as the sun set. It was time to go home.
With all the rain we’ve been having, I’m not sure how long the splendor will last, so visit us soon to catch the last hurrah of fall and start some early holiday shopping!

… And as a P.S., some news from our small hamlet… In its 45th year, the Sugar Loaf Annual Fall Festival, with 80 vendors exhibiting in addition to our resident shops, eateries, and theater, attracted 15,000 visitors! Read the story here.
I reopened the Bostree gallery on June 21st and a few weeks later roped some of my guys into helping out with the new walkway…
Here’s my son, Matt and husband, Ray working on the lower portion of the path…
… and here’s Ray and I placing stone in the upper section. This one weighed more than me!
In between digging and hauling heavy stone, Ray found this HUGE neon green caterpillar crawling on a board behind the house. I’ve never seen anything like it before!
… So… the walkway is almost finished (although I still need to do more with the outdoor display area and garden), and the big sale continues with ALL pottery priced at 30% off or more. After Labor Day, the sale will continue for another few weeks with select items only on sale. Click here to see some interior photos of the gallery.
The Gallery is open Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 12-5, other days by chance or appointment. Stop by and check out the progress as I continue to settle in home at 56 Wood Road, Sugar Loaf.
I’ll be reopening the Bostree Gallery at 56 Wood Road, Sugar Loaf, NY on Saturday, June 21st. For those of you who remember, the gallery was located here from 1984 -1999. Here’s how the new space is looking so far…
I’ll be having a big sale on items that are in stock to make room for new and upcoming work. This would be a good time to invest in dinnerware or to start early, early Christmas shopping!
There’s still more to do, especially out in the garden where I’ll have outdoor displays.
I look forward to seeing you at our new (old) location soon!
