Shrine Sale Stories…Botanical Redux
February 10, 2013 by Tokyo Jinja
OK, no joke. These are what I found at the Tomioka Hachiman shrine sale today! Amidst all the lovely usual things – the textiles, the porcelains, the vintage tools and the general junk – I got these three framed fern botanicals.
They aren’t particularly valuable, but they are extremely decoratively pleasing. Add them to the herbiers and the katagami stencils and I could open a garden shop!
