Nobody even came close.
If you're just joining us, I made these big decoupaged pendants, upcycled from something mysterious.
First, here is Mich's Honor Roll Of Most Creative (Totally Wrong) Guesses:
Dena: A Smurf manhole cover. (Hope you replaced it with something so there are no broken Smurflegs.)
Shannon: The top of a mini spaceship. The spaceship crashed and the aliens died. But their dying wish/Was that Mich/Make a necklace out of it with their permish!
Onel: a sifter with its mesh ripped off.
Mrs. Nat: A watch case?
Amy: Barbie couldn't stand her plain ol' toilet seat cover, so she commissioned Lily Pulitzer to custom-fit a floral seat onto Barbie's commode. Poor Lily passed away Sunday and never had the pleasure to see the frozen smile on Barbie's face.
Hahaha! Barbie's toilet seat is close...NOT.
Shall we see the answer?
As I mentioned at the top, I kinda stumped you this round. Now I really have you curious, don't I?
After days of correct guesses, I even posted a secret hint on Twitter. (You can follow me there to get an occasional extra bit of help with this game.)
The hint: "Not an item used by girls or women." That rules out a compact or makeup mirror (the most-guessed idea).
I think you're gonna laugh when you see it.
SQUAWWWK!!! A parakeet mirror from the pet store!
Did you laugh? Who knew that Polly's looking glass would make such a cute pendant?
I tried two versions of the teal necklace, a multi-strand and a single strand. Both with turquoise accent beads...
I gussied up the magenta one with real branch coral, to match the origami-paper art.
Winners, winners! Since no one guessed it, random.org has chosen two lovely contestants . They will each receive a Polly Wanna Cracker necklace. Congrats to Laurie and Sheri! Keep an eye out for my email, coming soon.
Thanks for playing, everybody, especially all the first-timers. Fun to meet so many new peeps!
One more thing. Get a load of these super ornate bird mirrors:
So fairy-tale-looking, aren't they? They remind me of Snow White. Coming up soon - the fun Polly Wanna Cracker tutorial, and how I use simple graphics to give these beauties a completely different look.
See you then!
