Rowena Cade: Reading Chair

I blogged about this photo in 2012. It's much more meaningful since I learned all about this remarkable woman in an episode of Penelope Keith's Hidden Villages on PBS. Read more here. I love her hair and her outfit from head to toe. I am rather certain this was not staged but a chance photo by someone catching her unaware. She was such a hard worker and a real artist in cement and stone at the open-air amphitheater she created in Cornwall. Numerous links here.

Karen -- I know you will be impressed with her life's work. She even made her own cement using local sand. Imagine that!!! I wish I could pinpoint the exact episode on Penelope Keith's Hidden Villages so you could see the open-air amphitheater she created in Cornwall. It is absolutely amazing. Have fun reading.
xo, Rosemary
