We walked into Oamaru from the motor camp through the beautiful botanic gardens twice today. Over the Chinese gardens bridge.
And past this gorgeous ‘Wonderland’ sculpture.
The first time was to meet with the trader at Oasis to confirm which purchases I wanted.
I got a rice cabinet, ironic that I already own a noodle cabinet, I must have a thing about furniture which has been made to store carbohydrates.
I also found two of these pieces, which I have to admit I had no idea what they were for; as it turns out they are machete sheaths for the workers in the fields.
Added was a lovely old ginger jar, and a fabulous old Asian blue plate, and an Andrew Van der Putten vase with a gorgeous glaze which is the colour of the Hokitika gorge.
I also found this fabulous shell lamp, which I love when it is lit up.
