It's inorganic collection time in our suburb at the moment, time for all sorts of treasures to emerge on the footpath. Sarah Laing has drawn a great comic about the inorganics, which you can read here. I can identify with the way she feels like a tormented werewolf trying to resist all the things that other people have put out. I've been trying really hard to resist picking up more treasure...so far I've only acquired a stash of 1970s National Geographics, and a whole lot of photos, mainly of the beautiful fabric on old mattresses. And some funny looks, while I've been taking photos of said mattresses.
I love the way all the old chairs waiting by the roadside look so inviting. You just want to sit down and have a cup of tea in them!
