This fellow is always smiling in our back yard. I hope this Thanksgiving found you smiling as well!
I am blessed to be celebrating Christmas with family and friends. I hope your holidays, whichever ones you celebrate, are joy filled and spectacular! ~Terry
I hope your Thanksgiving celebration was as lovely as ours! 🙂
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.

After the 29th, the Bostree gallery will be closed for several weeks while I move it back to its pre 1999 location on Wood Road, Sugar Loaf, NY. This will reunite the gallery with our studio and home, and simplify my life!.
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
Throw all of the following into a blender, just make sure everything is cut into blender friendly sized pieces, and blend until smooth.
1 cucumber (about 1 – 1 1/2 cups)
3 kale leaves (about 1/2 cup)
1 – 2 tsp. raw honey
1 tbl. chlorophyll (optional for extra nutrition and extra green!)
a handful of ice
Count your blessings, not your woes. ~ Irish Proverb
