Those of us who live in the Northeastern U.S. have finally thawed out from what was an epic 2009-10 winter with one endless snowstorm after another. While I really do enjoy the feeling of hibernating inside with a good book, a furry cat and a lovely fire, after a while I became very restless and felt my creative juices prodding me to "get going!" So, I pulled out my box of vintage clothing, and set my always-willing mother, Patricia, in the upstairs bathroom with my camera and a sketch of how I envisioned the images I wanted. Out I ventured into the blizzard, while Mom hung her head out the window and snapped the shutter release. Trust me, I was not out there for very long! The result of our collaboration was a fairyland of images reminiscent of the old sillhouette cut-out art from the Victorian Age. Mom and I called ourselves The Cabin Fever Girls, and we made the most of one very cold afternnoon.
