Guess the Mystery Thing: Big and Flowery.

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! 

UPDATE: THIS CHALLENGE IS NOW CLOSED.  THANKS, EVERYBODY!  REVEAL (AND WINNERS) POSTING SOON.

  5. 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.

  15. cut our from plastic lace place mats. I have done this once. Hard work cutting, got sore hands, but worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  16. 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
  17. Wow, people are creative! A shuttlecock -- I never would have thought of that.

    My guess is fabric appliques, like to 'decorate' jeans or bags.

    ReplyDelete
  18. 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.
    Don't matter, they are ridiculously pretty! LOVE

  19. I'm guessing cut-outs from a lacey placemat. Alternately, Smurfette's collection of Royal Ascot hats.

  20. doileys or lacey placemets... cdoyle97@yahoo.com

  21. Fancy cupcake liners maybe?

    lobsterpudding@yahoo.com

  22. It looks as if they are cut from a lace fabric or fabric used as tablecloths or window panels. Whatever-they're great!

    ReplyDelete
  23. something coming from : either curtains , or bra or panties ??????

    ReplyDelete
  24. 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
  25. plasticy lacy table cloths or doillies..i've seen them somewhere before..probably your favorite store :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Cut out from plastics table clothes or cushion cover?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Mh... it seems that at the flower petals... there are cuts. And the white is maybe... plastic.

    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 :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. 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
  29. 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
  30. 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!

  31. Very fancy (and bad) coffee filters?

  32. I would say they are flowers cut from lacy net curtains, then spray painted to make the pretty colours!

    ReplyDelete
  33. 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.

  34. 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.

  35. Grrr, I forgot my email. abrowning_504 at yahoo.com

  36. 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
  37. doilies sprayed with metallic spray paint

  38. Not sure f my guess made it through ciber space to you, so here it is again.

    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

    ReplyDelete
  41. 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.
