Time for the reveal! If you're just popping in, we have been playing a round of Guess the Mystery Thing featuring this upcycled necklace:
My readers have been trying to identify the purple and black focal piece. What the heck is this thing?
I also made a crazy ring and an extra-long giant version of the pendant - let's see if showing them will help at all...
Think you know the answer? Did anybody get this right? All shall be told in a minute.
First, here's Mich's Honor Roll of Most Creative (Totally Wrong) Guesses:
Betsy: Where did you find purple lady bugs?
arisraver: Part of a hair brush handle.
Angeline: I truly admire your bravery! How did you manage to grasp the technology
to enlarge the body of an ant, behead it, and dye it purple?!
Jill: Looks like part of a pen my daughter owns. Wondered where it had disappeared to!
Rebecca: The bottle from those little favour sized bubbles. If so, I hope
to see a cool unique pair of earrings made with the bubble wands.
Dena: Grapes. Wear it now, eat it later.
squarefeet: Easter bunny pellets.
Jessica: Beads from an abacus.
Amy: Barbie's jawbreakers.
Hahaha! Great work, team! Angeline's guess is too cool! Hey, squarefeet, are 'Easter bunny pellets' what I think they are? If so, hilarious.
Here comes the answer.
From the dollar store, of course. (Query: do 'Easter straws' appear in the King James Version, or the New American Standard Bible? I'm sure there's a scholar somewhere who can point me to the verse.)
Anyhow, they are weirdly cute and I doctored them up with a black Sharpie.
Winners, winners! This week we have two lucky prize winners chosen by random.org: Rebecca Anne and Arisraver. Congrats, you two! Look for my email, coming soon.
Note: player Bonnie B guessed "part of a bumpy straw," and would have been the winner, but didn't include an email. Sorry, Google-plus people, I can't email you directly from your profile. Bonnie, if you send me your address I'll send you a consolation prize.
Thanks for playing, everybody. See ya!
