Good day to you! And huzzah. Why huzzah? Because it's time for a new round of Guess the Mystery Thing!
Here's how it works. First, I show you some upcycled jewelry, like so:
You try to identify the secret ingredient. And if you're first to guess correctly, you win one. Cool, right?
Okay, you have your assignment. What are those mysterious flowery things? Be specific for a better chance at the win.
Leave your guess in the comments. There will be two winners: first correct guess and one random guess. If nobody gets it, there will be two random winners. So even if you're stumped, guess anyway, you could still win. The more creative the guess, the better!
This giveaway is open to anyone, anywhere. (You don't even have to be a follower of the blog, although I would lurve it if you were.)
The one and only rule:
1. If your email isn't available in one click from an online profile, be sure to include your email address with your guess.Okay, here's one last peekie...
Ready? Go, go, go! Guess the Mystery thing!

Dragon scales? email@example.comReplyDelete
No medical stuff this time, huh? I've never seen anything like that before, therefore I guess that these are sections of fairy wings. How poetical.ReplyDelete
Those decorative circle-shaped thingies that slide down over candles to dress up the base of the candle/candleholder.ReplyDelete
Well its cute & my guess is.........ReplyDelete
I think you cut these floral pieces from any floral net fabric..or on the other hand its kinda lace jewelry,you cut these motives from any lace or net fabric cloth or may be from any embroidery cloth..simply..
well the sunflower one is awesome!!!i have the same sunflower embroidery on my shirt which always looks attractive!!
Shuttlecocks from badminton?ReplyDelete
I think they are cut from lace curtains.ReplyDelete

hiya mich , are they little soft rubber anti slip bath thingies ? you know the kind i mean they come in all shapes and sizes ? they do look just like little fairy table cloths though xmaggiexReplyDelete
Tinkerbell's formal dining tablecloth?ReplyDelete

I am guessing an old vintage plastic table scarf doiliesReplyDelete
cut our from plastic lace place mats. I have done this once. Hard work cutting, got sore hands, but worth it.ReplyDelete
I love the shuttlecock answer - that would have great possibilities but I don't think that's what this is. I'm more prone to go with plastic doily or placemat.ReplyDelete
Wow, people are creative! A shuttlecock -- I never would have thought of that.ReplyDelete
My guess is fabric appliques, like to 'decorate' jeans or bags.
I, too, think they are some sort of doily or tablecloth- didn't they have them back in the 70ies and 80ies made from rubber? I seem to have vague memories of something similar to what you used, but for the life of me, I can't quite nail it.ReplyDelete
Don't matter, they are ridiculously pretty! LOVE
I'm guessing cut-outs from a lacey placemat. Alternately, Smurfette's collection of Royal Ascot hats.ReplyDelete
doileys or lacey placemets... firstname.lastname@example.orgReplyDelete
Fancy cupcake liners maybe?ReplyDelete
It looks as if they are cut from a lace fabric or fabric used as tablecloths or window panels. Whatever-they're great!ReplyDelete
something coming from : either curtains , or bra or panties ??????ReplyDelete
Bits cut off one of those horrid bridesmaid dresses from the 80s and 90s? I have one in an alaming shade of green in my closet if you need more :)ReplyDelete
plasticy lacy table cloths or doillies..i've seen them somewhere before..probably your favorite store :)ReplyDelete
Cut out from plastics table clothes or cushion cover?ReplyDelete
Mh... it seems that at the flower petals... there are cuts. And the white is maybe... plastic.ReplyDelete
But a place mat or a stopper for the bath.. don't know.
I think you just went into a rubber or plastic fabric and forced them to make strange and beautiful stuff rather than their usual work :)
They are elegant! I want them to be from a doily, something crocheted... but knowing your penchant for shopping the dollar stores I'm going to say a plastic placemat, or table cloth. And if that is true, I want to know which brand of dollar store... ours just doesn't have such elegant things.ReplyDelete
OK, I'm late for the party as usual. Even before reading all these smart and creative guesses, I was thinking they were cut out from an very expensive plastic placemat, the kind we used to take camping just to make us feel fancy.ReplyDelete
They look like decorative iron-on appliques from the fabric or craft store (though for jewelry, I'm pretty sure the commenters above me suggesting plastic placemats are probably more right!). I've seen the iron-ons used to make fascinators, but jewelry is a novel idea... Maybe make a matching necklace and fascinator for a fancy event!ReplyDelete
Very fancy (and bad) coffee filters?ReplyDelete
kihoju at yahoo dot com
I would say they are flowers cut from lacy net curtains, then spray painted to make the pretty colours!ReplyDelete
They look like those drawer liners. Like the ones you put in your cutlery drawers and under stacks of dishes in cupboards to keep them from slipping or scratching the surfaces.ReplyDelete

Wow, those are so pretty. They do look like appliques, but that's just too mundane. So official guess...lace from Marie Antoinette's petticoats.ReplyDelete
Grrr, I forgot my email. abrowning_504 at yahoo.comReplyDelete
Well at first I thought they were doilies or iron on appliques. Then I thought they were those metallic paper doilies in Gold and Silver, they used to wrap pieces of wedding cake in during the 70's. Since that was my last thought, I think I will go with that!ReplyDelete
doilies sprayed with metallic spray paintReplyDelete
Not sure f my guess made it through ciber space to you, so here it is again.ReplyDelete
You "snuck" in to a garden fairies closet and took her hat, skirt and wings, shame on you, but it worked, very smart. Love them

hmmm...from a decorative mosquito net...Oh I got it, they are the edgings of plastic table mats/ TV covers..my aunt used to have stuff like this and seen loads of this stuff being sold on the roadside as a kidReplyDelete
Wow, could I have been any later to this little party game?! Hmmm... First off, such lovely creations Michelle, as we've come to expect. But whatever might they be... Well I think you're a very wicked girl because because you've gone and the torn the wings off of angels, cut the pretty parts out, and made delightful jewelry with them... Wicked wicked you.ReplyDelete
iron on lace appliques?ReplyDelete
lace bits cut from old LingerieReplyDelete
Mini fans from the world's smallest stripper? To be honest, they're just beautiful. I could see myself with those earrings.ReplyDelete
Plastic lace doily or table cloths...ReplyDelete

I think you cut up your Granny's hand cocheted doilies. Shame on you! They really make beautiful accessories. Granny would be proud.ReplyDelete
It's from a plastic lace placemat.ReplyDelete

Rhinestones and buttons glued onto lace flowers from Kate Middleton's wedding dress?ReplyDelete
Hi Mich, I love your stuff...I was thinking this could be pieces of an old wedding dress, the white from the pure bride, the yellow from the not so pure :)!ReplyDelete
Paper doilies~! =D My grandma used to put them underneath cake, on cookie plates and all that. Mmmh, childhood memories ...ReplyDelete
Is it iron on patches?ReplyDelete
