Guess The Mystery Thing: See Anemone, Wear Anemone.

Huzzah!  Time to play a new round of Guess The Mystery Thing!  (If you're new around here, it's my crafty giveaway game, open to all.)  The challenge: identify the mysterious secret ingredient in my latest upcycled jewelry project.





See anemone?



That's the look I was going for, anyway.


I hear some grumbling in the cheap seats.  "Kinda strange."  "Really yellow."  "Bumply."  I agree, they're a little bit out there.  But interesting, right?  And they look really cute on.



So tell me - what are those bumply yellow things?  (Note: I'm pretty sure more than one person will deduce this - so be specific in your answer!  The prize will go to the first person to mention the exact Mystery Thing, not just a category.)

First person to guess correctly wins a fabulous prize.  (Namely, your choice of one of these sea anemone jewels.)

How it works: leave your guess in the comments.  There'll be two winners: first correct guess, and a random winner.  That's right, I said random winner - so even if you don't know (or think someone else already got it), enter anyway, you could still win.  And if your guess is funny, it might make my Most Creative Honor Roll.

This giveaway is open to anyone, anywhere.  C'mon, join in!

THE ONE AND ONLY RULE

1. UNLESS YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS IS ONE CLICK AWAY IN AN ONLINE PROFILE, PLEASE INCLUDE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS WITH YOUR GUESS.  (Fun fact: if you only THINK your email is visible in your profile, it probably isn't.)

Ready?  Set!  Guess the Mystery Thing!




UPDATE: THIS CHALLENGE IS NOW CLOSED.  CHECK MY NEXT POST FOR THE REVEAL - THANKS FOR PLAYING, EVERYONE!

The Mystery Thing Revealed: Fancy Buttressed Balls.

Oh, woe is me!  After a few days of playing Guess The Mystery Thing, I have LOST yet another round to my wily readers.  And it's all due to my severe lack of housewifery.

I thought these balls would be a challenging mystery:








Alas, I was wrong.  More than half the contestants (and their Aunt Fanny) apparently knew the answer.  Did you?  Who won the prize?  And what does my lack of housewifery have to do with anything?  Read on to find out.
