The Grand Reveal for Eclectic Corner #1 – Guess Game

The Grand Reveal for Eclectic Corner #1 – Guess Game

Eclectic-Corner-Heat-MedumMost of you know who read this blog that I hosted my first challenge a week and a half ago, Eclectic Corner #1, that week was a Guessing Game.  Basically I posted a photograph, the theme was ‘wrinkles’ and people were invited to comment and guess what it might be.

Being an event, I also invited people to put their entries in too for us all to guess, the grand reveal being today to keep everyone sweating a bit.

There has been much fun and frustration throughout this process.  I have been accused of sending some insane and had fruit thrown at me, but all in all I think we ALL have had good fun right?

Judging by the comments on all the contributors posts I really do think so.

You can see all the entries and still have some fun guessing if you have not seen the answers yet, just click the Guessing Game link shown here- Guessing Game

The original post for Eclectic Corner #1 Guessing Game can be found here:  Eclectic Corner #1

Eclectic Corner #1 What is it?

Eclectic Corner #1 What is it?

There was a hint of what the photograph might be in one of the pictures from this post – The Edge – I thought some of you ‘might’ have spotted it, but I know a long shot…grins

However, the photo used for the Guessing Game was taken from the Narcissus Pink, the one shown below is the white because stupidly I threw both plants away yesterday and had only taken the full picture of the white version.

However shape, skin all etc the same just different colour with a tiny bit of effects perhaps….coughs!

I also found out that I should have planted the bulbs as they would have flowered again next year..face palm!

Narcissus white

Narcissus white

I had so many great guesses of what it might be from:

  • A date with a light shining on it x 2
  • raisin
  • roasted acorn squash
  • Plastic bag x 2
  • Baked potato x 5
  • Rock x 2
  • Turkey or a ham wrapped in foil in a roasting pan x 2
  • Papier mache
  • Ornament
  • Part of a bust, a bronze-ish bust
  • A coin
  • Old purple onion
  • Playdoh
  • Prunes x 2
  • Wrinkled thigh
  • Rotten fruit
  • Avocado
  • Fig
  • Burnt eggplant/brinjal x 2
  • Coffee bean. Or maybe a raisin. Definitely not a duck
  • Tissue paper
  • Passion fruit
  • Tree of trunk
  • Dog shit
  • piece of paper
  • Tree leaves
  • Rotten avocado or peach x 2
  • bird egg
  • baked apple

I also had a hilarious time in the comments section, here are some from my post, there are plenty on other people’s posts:

Were you with the Philea expedition to that comet, brought back a piece of rock, and how did you get back so quickly? It took that rocket 10 years….so cool

December 2, 2014 at 11:28 AM

Itll be the wrinkles i developed losing sleep over trying to guess this

December 2, 2014 at 10:36 AM

Hm, my imagination is going wild but it looks like the last dinner I attempted to cook and burnt. It’s been some time. Also, I refuse to photograph my crows feet, hence my wrinkles photo will have to come from a different direction…

December 2, 2014 at 4:32 PM

Got it, you have taken a photo of the moulted skin of an alien that you found being taken care of by a family of deer in Richmond? Tell me I am right???!!!

December 2, 2014 at 7:43 PM

I reckon that this looks uncannily like ET’s bottom, this is a pic of a passion fruit. Do I win a bottle of rosé to share with George Clooney?

December 2, 2014 at 9:42 PM

My cheek when I’m 100 years old and been in the sun for a week? 😀 No?? Ok, I’ll go with the passion fruit answer. How fun is this?!

December 3, 2014 at 2:04 PM

Some options:
1. tree leaves
2. dog shit with photographing effects… 😉
3. rotten avocado or peach
4. paper
5. trunk of a tree

Hi Justine…this was very entertaining…Thanks. If I find a good idea, I will join this wee

December 5, 2014 at 4:01 PM

Shame ;p but why do u have deer poo? Lol!

December 5, 2014 at 4:23 PM

Well it was shiny! I am female and attracted to shiny things..haha

December 5, 2014 at 4:41 PM

Lol somehow i think im missing something. Deer poo isn’t exactly poo now is it? Can’t imagine ‘shiny’ poo lol

December 5, 2014 at 6:14 PM

maybe I will treat you one day! lol…one could take that many ways x

December 6, 2014 at 8:03 AM

I cannot believe i just googled deer poop.

December 6, 2014 at 1:13 PM

December 6, 2014 at 3:14 PM
December 6, 2014 at 5:29 AM

ok third guess! prunes!

*flings a few in your direction if it’s wrong*

I’ve finally got mine up! Not sure if it’s showing up properly on your post though. I think mine is gonna be way too easy haha. product of a fried brain.

December 6, 2014 at 1:09 PM

are you flinging prunes at me? That really is very naughty i didnt see this until one hit me in the eye

I had such a great time with my first Eclectic Corner Event and want to thank everybody from those who entered & supported me hosting my first challenge and to the spectators who commented and joined in on the fun!

Eclectic Corner runs every two weeks, you can read more about it here.

The next one will be on Tuesday 16th December with a different them, the Tea Time Challenge slotted in between.

Watch this space as the next Eclectic Corner will be something different, I hope to surprise you each time.

Happy Weekending, Justine xx

    Rofl!! Never would have guessed this. Not in a million years. Does the organiser get a disqualification because you don’t have the full picture!? ;D just to rub a bit more salt into the wound – because i cant believe that deer poo conversation is subjected to being read by more people. Hahahaa!!
