Show and Tell last month at Waiheke Retirement Village
From left to right: Rosemary McKenzie is holding her grandmother’s ingenious can opener and displays her tea towel with the braille alphabet.
Mary Batten is holding a hand-carved Totara walking stick, which doubles as a family tree with small photos of her family – from her great grandparents to her grandchildren – embedded in the stick. It represents the flowing tide and was lovingly carved by her brother for her 80th birthday.
Pam Reid holds her book of Waiheke Art & Poetry that she published herself in 1991. Signed at the time by some very well-known subjects, it’s a real treasure.
Audrey Gray holds her clay pot doll that she adores.
On the table is a wooden carving by an unknown artist bought many years ago at the Ostend Market – it’s of two bare-bottomed men. Next to the carving is a whale’s tooth.
