Happy Halloween!

My pumpkin carving efforts yielded these yesterday!
Happy Halloween!

Jack-o-lanterns, Sugar Loaf, NY

From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!
~Scottish Prayer

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.
~Author Unknown

When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam,
May luck be yours on Halloween.

Fall in Sugar Loaf, NY

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…

The view of the field I was meandering through.

Looking east. Sugar Loaf, NY

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.

New Work by Andy Boswell

The gallery is still closed while I reorganize in the new location on Wood Road in Sugar Loaf, NY, but Andy has been busy in the studio. Scroll down to see some of his new ceramic pieces in progress. The last image is a 360º video of the graphic vessel in the first photo.

Check back for news of our reopening soon!

Another snowy day at Bostree in Sugar Loaf, NY

This was the snowy scene today in Sugar Loaf, NY as I sipped my tea and looked out the kitchen door toward the Bostree Studio.

Although the birds were quite happy to flutter and feast in the storm, Sophie wanted to stay outside only briefly.

I hope you are somewhere warm and snug this winter’s day and able to enjoy the beauty of the season! ~Terry

On this snowy Wednesday at Bostree in Sugar Loaf, NY

On this cold Wednesday of ice and snow in Sugar Loaf, NY, I took these photos and made a big pot of vegetable, venison stew. Perfect in one of Andy’s porcelain bowls!

… While Ray and his Husqvarna cleared the parking area of the Bostree studio, even though Andy’s pottery classes are cancelled for the evening.

… And the gallery, no longer located on Kings Highway, awaits it’s reopening on Wood Road, tucked-in snugly for for the winter.

… The finches fluttered and feasted, unperturbed by the weather.
The feeder is almost empty, but dependable me will refill it!

Wishing you warmth!
