One of our Big Chill friends, Denise Dickens, is a clothing designer who markets her designs at various trade and craft shows from NY to FL. Her company is Outside DesignWorks.
Denise was developing a portfolio presentation to submit for juried shows, so she recruited the ladies of the Chill to be her models. The morning was spent with the ladies sporting various coats, blouses, vests, and hats. Denise had planned the photo shoot in advance and contracted with a noted Denver fashion photographer named T’eece to take the photos for her. The guys helped Denise rearrange the furniture in one of the bedrooms to use as a “studio,” and then we awaited T’eece's arrival. We were all taken aback by his manner and appearance.
Rather than describe him, I’ll just post this photo and let you see for yourself. Needless to say, he was quite a character.
And here’s one shot of 5 of the ladies wearing Denise’s creations.
After the fashion parade we took off for the Continental Divide (another $15 saved) followed by lunch and hiking around nearby Lake Irene.

After the hike we returned home for shopping, napping, and just visiting. Friday night we enjoyed a catered BBQ pork dinner followed by a concert by local singer Peggy Mann. We stayed up quite late (for us) admiring the night sky—clear, dark, and full of stars.
