Hi! For the past few days my readers and I have been playing a round of Guess The Mystery Thing. What's that, you ask? Why, a little contest to see who can identify the mysterious secret ingredient in one of my upcycled jewelry projects. The challenge this week: guess the true identity of these red- and bluebell-shaped charms:
Think you know? Did anyone guess the answer? Let's find out!
As always, I must first regale you with a few of the least accurate entries. Here is Mich's Honor Roll of Most Creative (Totally Wrong!) Guesses:
Betsy: What have you done to Barbie's shoe horns?
Emily: Baby fairy wings.
Heather: Have you been trampling through Tinkerbell's garden?
Dena: Plastic driedel confetti.
Kathryn: Smurf shoehorns.
Lisbonlioness: Stolen blooms from U.K. bluebell woods.
Peaches: The teeth of a giant smurf who was run over by a train - that's how they got all flat and stuff. Obviously.
MeiJo's JOY: I hope they are not the flippers of little dolphins...no...oh dear...
Olivia: Baby smurf vampire fangs!
Shannon: Miniature dried man-eating plants.
Once and for all, people: I do not dismember Smurfs in my evil laboratory! I don't! Okay, yes, occasionally I conduct experiments recombining Smurf DNA with orphaned baby squirrels. And yes, the results (tiny blue squirrels able to rap in six languages and do the Macarena) would delight you if I were ever foolish enough to reveal them to the world. But that's it, I swear!
However, I can reveal the answer to the mystery of the bluebells.
Ready? Here goes...
Goofy rubber Gumby charms! Courtesy of Jessica from Zakka Life - who sweetly sent them, and very sweetly (yet passive-aggressively) challenged me to turn them into jewelry. Thanks, J! I was stumped for a long time, but you see I finally did it.
Who won? Me, that's who! I stumped you guys again, heehee. But you know I'm giving away jewelry anyway. Because I love this game and everyone who keeps coming by to play.
Winners! Since nobody got it, random.org has picked two lucky duckies. They are Agy and Shannon - congrats, you two, I will email you anon.
Thanks again for all the laughs! See you next time...right now, I have some snares to check out in the yard.
