Guess the Mystery Thing! Pink and purple edition.

Hey there, boys and girls!  It's time once again for our exciting and popular feature Guess the Mystery Thing and Win Because it's a Giveaway and a Brain Teaser and if you Win You Can Lord it Over All the Other Guessers Who Couldn't Figure it Out Ha Ha!

Guess the Mystery Thing for short.

This time, I made quite the little collection of interesting earrings.  Check them out...

Can you guess?  Please enter your thoughts in the comments section.  The first to guess correctly wins her choice!  Plus I will award another winner for most creative guess.  But wait!  Even if you think someone ahead of you has already won, go ahead and enter anyway, because there will be a random winner as well!

The Rules.
1. Open to anyone, anywhere.
2. If nobody figures it out, you will each owe me one mini Snickers bar from your leftover Halloween candy, or five minutes writing on a chalkboard, "I could not guess the Mystery Thing and Michelle is Queen of everything."
3. You must put your e-mail address in your comment.  I LOVE doing giveaways but I can't stand tracking people down, so please don't forget.  No e-mail, no entry.  (A harsh rule, I know, but I promise it will mean more giveaways because they will be more fun for me!)

Hint: guessing "pink and purple plastic leaves and petals" would be technically correct, but it ain't gonna win the dickie bird.  These came off something specific, and that's what you need to figure out.

Ready?  Set?  Guess the Mystery Thing!



  1. To me they look like those artificial plants for aquariums. Love the colors!

  2. I go with Jennifer, exactly what I thought... after LOADS of thinking.

  3. Feathers from a plastic peacock (from the planet Plastique, of course.)

  4. Those are scales shed from Serendipity, the pink dragon!

  5. those are most definitely plastic pieces from a horse race horse shoe shaped flower thingy they put on the winners neck.
    go Secretariat!

  6. Fish tank plants! That's the best I can come up with.


  7. OK I'm with the aquarium flower people or else you got in your spaceship and went to some Avatar like planet and brought back some of their flora. Two can play at this game Missy!

  8. They are aquarium plants! I should know, we have three tanks! I LOVE your blog! My email is :)

  9. FISH TACKLE!!! The spinning things, and the fake gummy things, that are attached to fish hooks.

  10. OK, aquarium plants makes the most sense. However, I think the colors look like they might be from a "Red Hat Society" accessory:)
    So much fun, thanks Michelle.

  11. darn, i was just about to say pink and purple plastic leaves and petals. man, so many rules. okay. well the fish plant people are quite numerous now. but i'm going to disagree just to make it interesting. the pink and purple plastic leaves and petals come from a straw hat floral decoration!

  12. The pink ones came from cat's tongues! Ha ha.

  13. My first guess was plastic flowers.. But that should be too obvious. I like the "fish tank plants" idea, but there are too many comments for that.. So I'm sticking with my first guess - plastic (artificial) flowers!
    Anyway - looks great! As all your creations :) Keep the originality coming!

  14. Aww, damn! Yeah. It took me 24 hours to figure out they were fish tank plants. Great job with them - it took me forever to figure them out!

  15. Well, I'm pretty sure that the aquarium plants guess is right so maybe I can win the random entry.
    I must say that I thought I was pretty good at finding unusual uses for things, but I am completely in awe of the things you come up with. I look forward to seeing more.


  16. I also say Aquarium plants. I love how creative you are. I look forward to seeing what you came up with every week:)
