What is this!

I have had a 'nesting' kind of Queens Birthday weekend, staying in my jarmies and mucking around with the new Blogger Design. It is still a mystery to me how I ever passed anything to do with Photoshop at uni. Jeez, I hate it it with a passion! It took me hours to do this simple header, and then I just gave up. Threw my hands in the air, gave up, and stormed off and made a fruit cake, a lemon tart and passionfruit tartlets. At least I could enjoy the efforts I put into those, and get fat to boot!

Anyway the new design is a work in progress. I wanted to create a visual brand so that when I hawk my wares, the merchandise would be recognisable. Hmph, methinks I am putting in alot of effort for a couple of bucks, but it keeps me out of mischief.

Anyhoo, the real reason for the post is this.

Does anyone know what it is? It is only small, 6cm high by 4 cm wide and has a suction cup on the end. The plastic is all one piece.

I got it in a box of crocheted flowers at a garage sale. The woman who sold it to me said it was used to crochet said flowers, but I can't work out how. I think she lied to me.


  1. Could it be something you put in the bottom of a vase to hold the flowers up straight?? I don't know much about flower arranging, or crochet so I'm probably way off! I like the new logo too.

  2. I agree with Kerry I think it is a posy stand for flower arranging.

  3. I thought it was a flower stand too. But I know zilch about flower crocheting so it is possible its for that too! Why don't you google it? When life hands me problems, I google them.

  4. How funny! I have no idea what it is..no help at all! Your blogs looking great, it takes me forever to make the smallest change, I haven't even attempted photoshop...

  5. I don't think it's anything to do with crochet - people just make stuff up if they don't know the answer sometimes :-)

    I'm not sure what it is, but it looks like a storage/display stand for something.

  6. Hahhaha i think she had no idea either.

    I think its a tooth pick holder....just saying.

  7. Hi Nick
    It's definitely a flower arranging do-dah. My mum had one when I was a kid (45+ yrs ago). She'd suction it to the bottom of a float bowl or vase and poke the flower stems in through the holes.
