In Celebration of Innisfail’s 50th Anniversary of their Figure Skating Club we donated this pair of figure skates. For the chrome blades we used mirror glass and the 50 was cut from Spectrum Black Cathedral and overlaid on the skates using E6000 glue.
In 2011 we made a series of these Rocky Mountain Horizons which were commissioned by The Order of Eastern Star, and presented as gifts. They were approximately 8 inches in diameter. We attached a brass sculptured edging along with soldering a fine silver chain into the solder seams for hanging. This is the picture of the first of three that we made.

For the past 3 weekends we have had a big dump of snow, with melting and street snow removal in between.
We did manage to put up our Christmas lights on our home and the Colorado Green Spruce tree in our front yard during a few days of much warmer weather after the first 2 weekends of winter storms.
This weekend, November 16 we were once again hit with another winter blast, except this snow storm’s snow was lighter, with less moisture, coupled with high winds, whiteout conditions and much colder temperatures. Our winter wonderland is no doubt here to stay till next April 2014.
For those of you from around the world who view our website and Facebook enjoy our outdoor festive tree.
