The Mystery Thing Revealed: Wicked Cool.

Time to reveal the answer to this week's Guess The Mystery Thing challenge!  Here are the jewels in question:



Wicked strange, aren't they?  Can you identify the source of those mysterious red and green spears?



Did anyone get it right?  Read on to find out!

Before I reveal the answer, here's Mich's Honor Roll Of Most Creative (Totally Wrong) Guesses:

Betsy: Carrots from a Troll garden, right?
Carol: Oompa Loompa toothpicks.
Ashley: Pinocchio! Now why did you steal his nose? And what, you made him lie so it would grow back and you could steal it again?
Amy: Lego Darth Vader light sabers.
Lola: Body piercing tapers for creating large holes in the earlobes for the hip, young tribal set!
Lisbonlioness:  You snatched the horns off two goats from Munchkinland and two from the Emerald City, wicked as you are!  Tsk, too easy this time, I'm afraid. Sorry I spoiled it for everybody, but I'll have the ring, please, thank you.
Shannon: Mini saber tooth tiger teeth, dyed green and red for Christmas in July.
Annie: Incense sticks that you use for your daily seances.
Shea: Candy canes sucked down to a point.
Miranda: Jousting spears for a Knight-in-Shining-Armor Ken doll.
Michele: Small colorful stalactites that you spirited from a subterranean water cave under LA.  And only you know its location, you lucky thing.
Squarefeet: You have been dehorning pygmy Christmas unicorns. 

Hee hee!



Okay, enough horsing around.



Ready for the answer?



By the way, nobody guessed it (although one person was close-ish).  I stumped you again, whee!



Look:


They are combs for braiding horse manes and tails!  (A beatiful art form in its own right.)
I spotted my combs at a feed store where I was purchasing castrating bands.  Loved the colors and the wonderful silhouette, and at forty-nine cents each, I had to have them!  I used a wire snipper to nip off the individual teeth.



Winners winners!  No one got the exact answer, but Meijo'sJOY was the one clever cutie to mention a comb, so she gets first prize.  Yay PC!  And my random.org winner: Anne P!  Congrats, you two, I'll email you anon.

Thanks to every one of you for coming out to play.  See you again soon!

  2. How daft I am!
    I used to brush and style horses' manes every summer for fun when I was younger, but then again, I used my own brushes and combs. (what?)
    Genius! They do look wonderful.
    Congrats to the lucky winners!
