Guess the Mystery Thing: Variations On A Funny Shape.

Who is ready for a new game of GUESS THE MYSTERY THING?  (Me!  Me!)  It's really fun and anyone can play.  Just take a gander at my new upcycled jewelry project:





Can you identify what I used to make the focal piece?




It's something very specific, and familiar to many of you.







Pretty?  Want to win one?  Tell me, what are those mysterious objects?  No hint this time, because I think it's going to be easy peasy.

How it works: Leave your guess in the comments.  There will be two winners: first correct guess and one random guess.  That's right, a random winner!  So even if you're stumped, guess anyway - you could still win.

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, please, please, please include your email address with your guess.

Okay, me hearties!  Ready?  Set!  GUESS THE MYSTERY THING!!!




UPDATE: THIS CHALLENGE IS NOW CLOSED.  THANKS, EVERYBODY!  REVEAL COMING SOON...

  1. Those look like slices of Scrabble tile holders -- the wooden bars that hold the Scrabble tiles. Maybe cut with a bandsaw to get the nice even slices? Interesting use for them.

  11. OK, I had to turn my head a few times, but figured out they're slices of scrabble tile holders. I'm late to the party as usual, cuz so many other smarties guessed the same thing.
    Brilliant necklaces!!

  17. Scrabble tile trays. GREAT use for them! I've seen the tiles themselves used many ways, but never the trays.

  18. yes, they are obviously shoe inserts for leprechauns little green felt booties, they slide these in at night to help retain the shape
    After a busy day of guarding the gold at the end of the rainbow and where there is a rainbow there is rain! as we all know felt has to be blocked after it gets wet, from the rain, by the rainbow, yup.

  24. Since Scrabble tile holders is taken I'm going to say that this is mini version of one of the sculptures in the Minnapolis Sulpture Gardens outside the Walker Art Center.

  26. Bookends for a dollhouse library. Hey dolls like to read when no one is playing with them. marydeforge@gmail.com

  27. I can't concur with the scrabble tile holder slice answer because (1) too many people already said it and I want to be different, and (2) in one photo, it seems the inside is too rough and the outside is too smooth for a tile holder that's been sliced.

    So.... my answer is decorative brackets or cornices or whatever they're called to support bookshelves in doll houses. Bought them at Barbie's local Ikea, right?
