Fresh kiln and work

With our Holiday Sale fast approaching, we are working every single day.


Here are some nice leaf design casseroles by Sue.  She put them up on her Facebook page and they will probably sell very quickly.


Sue has some new earring designs.

Pumpkin Carving

When our kids and all the cousins were small we always had a wonderful Pumpkin Carving party, with prizes and lots of good food and fun.


We still love to carve our pumpkins.  This year we were at our Windsong rental cottage in the woods.

Glens Falls Food Fest

Zanes big day out, he is one year and nine days and sampling new tastes.


About 50 food vendors from local restaurants set up booths in downtown Glens Falls, around the Library Grounds.  Very easy to get too and plenty of parking.

Zane is learning which are his favorite flavors and tastes.




Autumn Walk

Tis the season for long walks and we are lucky because we don’t have to travel far, just walk out our door.
oct_15This is a drone shot of our Windsong Cottage in the woods.  The house is in the lower center of the photo just across the dirt road from the lake.  The trail around the lake is full of wonderment every single day.
oct_11A Pileated Woodpecker is working on the base of an old tree.
oct_12oct_5There are always mushrooms growing in these woods.  Here are two varieties that are popping out of old logs.
oct_8Opps….looks like a Blue Jay met its demise here…..probably from an owl.
oct_4Canadian Geese are at the lake waiting for a nice chilly day to head south.
oct_13The water is very still and very low.
oct_6About a mile from the lake is this beaver dam Sue and I treacherously crossed and got lost.
But that’s what walking in autumn is all about……forget where you are and just take in the beauty of nature.

You’ll get home eventually.
