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…
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.
Andy has created a video documenting the process of creating one of his illustrated vessels. He is throwing grolleg porcelain and painting on the pot with iron oxide and cobalt. The music featured is by his friend Julia VanTieghem.
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.
I hope you are somewhere warm and snug this winter’s day and able to enjoy the beauty of the season! ~Terry
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!
I recently read this wonderful quote from Neil Gaiman. It’s just what I needed to hear this year. I decided to have some fun and combine it with one of my photos. I hope you enjoy!
Wishing everyone a most happy, healthy, abundant New Year!

I’m looking forward to the move and to seeing you at our new / old location in the spring!
I took this photo a few years ago. If you take notice you will see that it’s decorated with hearts. We had bought a cut-fresh-that-day tree on Christmas Eve. It was still fresh after New Years and I just couldn’t bring myself to take it down. When it got close to Valentine’s Day, I stripped off the Christmas ornaments, cut hearts from paper and decorated the tree with those. It became my Valentine’s tree I edited the photo last year and added the quote. I am captivated by the quote because it seems to me that each year the spirit of Christmas survives and transcends commercialism, overflows religious confines, and spills out amongst all. Everyone can get on board with love and goodwill no matter their religious or non-religious proclivities. Wishing you all peace and joy this holiday season! ~Terry
