Guess The Mystery Thing: Lime Green Wheelies.

Hiya!  Welcome to another round of my giveaway guessing game, Guess The Mystery Thing.  It's always quite exciting, and anyone can enter.  So stay and play, and maybe win some jewelry!  Let's begin.  Peep these fun green-and-gunmetal necklaces:



What are those lime-colored whatchamajiggies?


Hmmm.  This might be a toughie.  I don't think you're going to guess.  I think I'm going to stump you.  I don't say that very often, because you people are wicked clever.


First person to guess correctly will receive a fabulous prize!  (Namely, your choice of one of these purty upcycled necklaces.)

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.  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.  THANKS FOR PLAYING, EVERYBODY!  CHECK MY NEXT POST FOR THE REVEAL...

A Tale Of Two Clams.

How do you like my faux white porcelain giant clam?




Quite elegant, n'est ce pas?  It was created from some distinctly inelegant materials.  And it only cost two clams!

How'd I do it?  Most pertinently - how'd I do it for two little dollars?  Gather 'round and ye shall hear...

Ooooh. The Claw.

Here's a new and strange design, whipped up today as a satisfying Sunday project.  An antique clawfoot of cast bronze, used as a very ornate, bizarrely cool pendant.



Here's the story.  This little antique (my great-grandmother's coffee table) has been on a shelf in the garage for many years.


Because two claw feet were missing.  (Sniff.)  But!  We recently found four other feet that match, and Jeff will be restoring the piece.

Meantime, I swiped the beautiful 100-year-old claws for this necklace, featuring some gorgeous porcelain beads.


Want to DIY?  Here comes a quick look at what I did to convert The Claw into The Pendant.

Guess The Mystery Thing: Wicked!

Let's launch a new round of Guess The Mystery Thing, shall we?  (If you're new around here, it's my guessing game giveaway.  Please stay and play - everyone is invited!)

This Mystery Thing has a touch of the spooky.  What a strange week it has been all over the country - dangerous storms, evil weather, power outages and such.  I suspect Dark Influences.  It's going to take a powerful spell to combat this witchery, and I have just the thing.


I call it the Wicked ring, and it is quite weird.  And I love it.





If the ring is a little too, um, fashion forward for your taste, perhaps you'll like these Wicked earrings.


Now comes the challenge.  Can anyone identify the mysterious secret ingredient?  What are those green and red spears?





Some of you may have a general idea right off the bat, but be as specific as possible for the win.  First person to guess correctly will receive a fabulous prize!  (Namely, your choice of one of these magical 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.  If your guess is funny, it might make my Most Creative Honor Roll.
