“Better to be shattered Jade than broken pottery”Chinese proverb
The cottage has been throwing up more surprises this week. From a hidden door to the inside of the old hot water cylinder, I have found plenty of inspiration. My energy has been quite low and although I have learnt to listen to my body when it’s complaining, I do find it hard to give in and take it easy. I would rather be a shattered piece of Jade so it has been good to get on with doing something creative instead and find new textures to photograph.
Along with hot water at last, Jade, green and turquoise seem to have been the dominant theme in the cottage this week.

We uncovered a door this week, just where we are going to put a new one. At only 5′, It would be perfect if it was taller . It seems a shame to not use it but we have to accept that we are a much taller generation and it’s impractical.
