Silver Bells........FMS116





Just had to add some tiny silver bells to go with the silver embossing and glimmer paper on this card.  Those words "Silver Bells" make me smile........and remember.  Way back in the mid-70's my husband and I operated a small ski area in upstate New York called Silver Bells. About this time of year we would be praying hard to the snow gods for a white Christmas so we could open during the holiday season!  No snowmaking back in those days - only Mother Nature!  A friend of ours recently sent us this link on lost ski areas of upstate NY. You can see our little area which never reopened after we left it in 1977 and is now a private residence.  But I learned a lot in those three years.  If you ever need someone to load t-bars or to ride shotgun in a Tucker Sno Cat while you groom trails let me know!


Narelle designed a delightful sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Darling use of the ribbon Linda. Wow you amaze me with what you have done. You must have been up late to post this in the wee hours of the morning. LOL!

I've been a follower of yours for a while, because I like your style, and we are "neighbors" (in the Adirondack sense). When I read about Silver Bells, I laughed out loud! I teach in Speculator, and my daughter's best friend is Tom and Millie's granddaughter...small world!

I love this card! I really must add some jingle bells to a card soon because it is such a sweet little accent!

And wow on the ski area! That's so cool! Don't you want to check out the area on Google Earth to see what it looks like today? I do!!
