Welcome! If you are just joining us, my readers and I have spent the past few days playing Guess The Mystery Thing. With these great big, giddy flower statement rings:
The challenge: identify those wacky plastic fleurs.
Think you know? Did anyone guess it? Read on...
First, Mich's Honor Roll of Most Creative (Totally Wrong) Guesses:
Perwinkle Dzyns: That lovely plastic flower arrangement in Aunt Martha's living room - you baked them in the oven till the plastic shriveled. Oh, and you washed the dust off first.
The Answer Is Chocolate: You went flower picking in Willie Wonka's candy garden.
Amy: Barbie's single seat pool floats.
Shannon: Tinkerbell's flower umbrellas.
Ladiemaus: Melted Jolly Ranger candies poured into a mold. (Fine tuning by licking off the sharp edges!)
Smree: Lady Gaga's hairbows? (Who am I kidding? She would never wear anything that tame...)
Numerous players: fancy shower curtain rings.
Shower curtain rings? Just how fat do you guys think my fingers are??? I made the rings myself, and they are normal finger sized.
Harrumph. Okay, I was mad but I forgive you. Ready? Here's the answer...
Yes, indeed - plastic reusable ice cubes! In a particularly cute array of pastel colors.
I kinda thought these were going to be trickier to guess. But most of you got it easily! Either you are all remarkably clever, or your drinks are a lot fancier than mine. Or both.
Winners! First prize goes out to UPAE art. And my two random.org winners: Dani and JesusChique! Congrats congrats - watch for my email, coming soon.
Thanks for playing, as always...I am off see about putting my fingers on a diet. Until next time!
