I cannot believe that the holiday season (and 2009)

are almost ended. I tried something new this year-

several small events instead of one big one.

This image is from Camp Woods, taken during a holiday

sale I did there early this month. I am happy that I discovered this very special place!

Change is all around, in falling temperatures, turning leaves.

I took this photo of our lilac, because the yellow against a
dark ground was so stunning.

Here is an image from the summer show in Garrison,
with the Hudson on view fron my "back door"!

It was well attended, but not enough people bought.

I did well enough, but people were really not shopping,
in general.

August Craft Show

I have done the Garrison Art Fair every August since 2001; it can be
a very good one, and the quality of the work gets better every

It is held at the edge of the Hudson. There is a strong tie to the river-
rides on the sloop Woody Guthrie, and a kayak builder who will be
working on a project both days.

Hopefully the weather gods will smile!

See you there

The sale went very well; thanks to all of you who came by!
We were very lucky with the weather; we have had a crazy
amount of rain this week!

Butter seems to have become popular again and so have butter

I designed my version of the "French butter dish " a couple of
years ago, and am now in the process of creating a standard
(American-style?) butter server. (It is currently being tested
at our house).

One of our newest vendors at the Beacon Farmers Market is
Scotch Hands Butter Co..They blend butter with herbs,
and other flavorings.Their product is meant as finishing
seasoning for vegetables and meats, as well as a spread.

Yesterday I started my little cold season vegetable and flower
garden. ( I will start some flowers and herbs under lights this week, then insert them in the empty spaces around the perennials & bulbs.)

I love gardening by seed very much, and have done much
experimenting in the nine summers that we have lived in our house.

We don't have enough sun to do a full-out vegetable garden,
but I have some success with early season crops, which mature
before the trees are fully leafed out.
I will post images of the little green sprigs as they emerge-very soon, I hope!

( I really love the seed packets for themselves too!)

This has been a very long winter here
in the Hudson Valley.

I can now see that the forsythia
at end of my street is "yellowing up",
and, closer at hand, these bulbs are
sprouting in my garden.

Time to start glazing.
January is a slow-start month, always.

The white bisque is little like facing
a blank canvas or paper.

I am looking forward to seeing some
new work come out of the kiln!

My husband took this photo of some sedum autumn joy on a
cold but sunny day.

Beauty like this does help us get through these very
cold days (along with lots of hot chocolate, etc.)

I received this image of my bowl from
some friends who I gave it to as a wedding
gift. It really looks great on their counter,
and the pears inside really make it come

I just started using this red stoneware, and plan to expand
my use of it in the coming year.
