Fedeterranean Furniture



I spotted this dear little cabinet languishing on the nature strip last week and brought it home immediately. I'm slightly ashamed to say I abandoned it again this evening. Like a very bad adoptive mother I put it back on the street, unable to actually countenance it in the house. It is a classic piece of Fedeterranean furniture: note the faux marble, the faux walnut veneer, the faux gold handle.



I'm not all bad. Here's another true story: today on King St Newtown I paid $5.00 for a big tub of strawberries. I was asked a few minutes later by a beggar for some money, and as I had none left I gave her the strawberries. She was pleased & I saw her sharing them with some of her colleagues a bit later at the bus stop outside the Bank Hotel.

It's indeed intriguing what you find on naturestrips. An amazing piece, but I would have released it back into the wild too.

The strawberry story is lovely. Blessings on you for that kindness, girl :)

Plenty of good vitamins. Would that I had such an offering next time I'm stopped by the insolvent. Good on you, Meredith.

I liked the strawberry story too. Years ago I played the piano in King Street, in a cafe called the Zambesi on Sunday nights. Did it for about six months. Is it still there?

Perhaps you could have put it in the backyard for storing gardening tools or something??

I like the strawberry story, but I like it more so because you refer to the sharees as her 'colleagues'. There's something quite bless about that.

But Meredith, it goes so well with your sandals! Couldn't you have put it in the teenager's room?
