Day 186 - Flower table

Flower table
A triumphant purchase

This is my favourite piece of furniture. I bought it at the Martinborough Fair a few years ago and lugged it all the way back to my car, several streets away. Not bought for its functional abilities, it boasts all the things I love: daisies, purple, and wrought iron. For my 30th birthday, I unscrewed the flower top and gave it to a cake maker to replicate. She produced a stunning purple daisy chocolate cake, which I cut and presented on the table. The light in this picture makes the colour look a little more blue, but it's most definitely a bold purple colour.


  1. In my Wellington days I used to LOVE going to the Martinborough Fair. Good to know it is still going strong.

  2. Wish we had a shot of that cake to go with the table. May this table continue to bring you pleasure for many, many years to come.


Say cheese!
