Guess the Mystery Thing: Little Ghostly Trees

Hi, hi, people!  Sorry my posts have been a bit sparse lately.  Hey, how about a new round of Guess The Mystery Thing?  (It's my groovy giveaway guessing game, and everyone is invited to play.)

Have a look at these, my latest upcycled necklaces:











Can you identify the mysterious branchlike structures inside the pendant?  What are those interesting things?



First person to guess correctly will receive a fabulous prize!  (Namely, one of these nifty necklaces.  OR a goodie bag of random crafty supplies.) 
 
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), 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.

Ready?  Set!  Guess the Mystery Thing!



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

    2. Hi, Jennifer,

      The Mystery Thing is what's INSIDE the Crystal Light container caps - but great spotting! Hope you'll guess again.

  4. Sisson already guessed the loofah sponge, so I'll choose the little trees from the smurf forest. Bet you had fun picking those little fellows!

  8. I think Welmoed is correct. Loofah, loofa, luffa, chinese okra is a gourd that grows on a vine! I had always thought it lived in the sea..tee hee hee!

    Or Barbie had a bad hair day!

  11. I also think part of it is from a loofa sponge but the cap itself is from the top of my Crystal Lite container! How creative!!! Makes me feel so "creatively challenged!" Love it

  16. How did you get a pic of my hair when I wake up in the morning?! 😊 I think its some of the dried/silk grasses that you can get in the craft section at WalMart.

  17. I was going to say loofah too...but maybe some dried cactus-y thing from the desert?? Whatever it is, it's intriguing and gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yeah, I was gonna say loofah as well. Since that's been guessed... hmmm... the guts of a toy after your pupster has destroyed it!

  25. Easy-peasy. This is part of the petrified forest in which Harry Potter was trying to find answers to the castle puzzle!!!!

  26. sponge parts...would be my guess - very cool looking whatever the case may be - would look very cool if you painted them funky too.

    ReplyDelete
  27. My vote is for a loofah. BTW, really cool looking necklace!

  28. This is my millionth visit to this post (ok exaggeration) to look at your newest mystery thing. I am stumped but will guess that it's the frayed pieces from my daughter's hat made out of some coconut fiber thingy.

    p.s. I already won your goody bag but wanted to play so badly. Hope it's ok to join in for fun.

  29. OMG, you caught that..that...illness! It's when you eat too much chocolate, and listen, because this is very rare! You throw up this fibrous material. Scientists are unaware of this, because people instantly and mysteriously forget. It dries quickly and becomes easy to use for craft projects such as this. The fiber seems a little like those dried curly branches that people use for fancy schmancy decorations in hotels and such. I have an amazing memory, have experienced this before and....gulp...poor you, Mich.

  30. Wow! It's an edible pendant, this time? It looks so much like the dried shredded squid snack!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I agree it does look like a loofa cut thin in a crystal lite lid.

  32. It's a part of a corrugated box pulled apart.

  33. Rats! Someone else guessed my guess - cross section of a loofah sponge! Patti dixonp at att dot net

  35. Hi Mich
    Nice to know you. I love you blog, it's so original.
    I would like to attend to this giveaway. I think it is the dry part of a indian fig leaf (prickly pear).
    This looks like those in my garden in Sicily when I was a child.
