Guessing Games, Imagination, and Shaker Book Winners


"Imagination has rules, but we can only guess what they are." ~Mason Cooley

I love games that take imagination. Guessing games can be fun too. So thank all of you who have played along with my mystery photos to enter my giveaway for Orchard of Hope. I'll be drawing for the two winners on Saturday, November 2, so you can get in an extra entry by commenting on this post or one of the other mystery photo posts before Saturday. Each guess or comment on a new post gets you another entry. Do you know what this one is? Remember, it's more fun if you make your guess before you read everybody else's.

I'm not quite as mysterious as I'd hoped to be with these photos.
I thought the one last Wednesday would be a real puzzler and what did all of you say? Flower. And all of you were right! However, only a few of you knew what KIND of flower. It is a passion flower. They are strange little blooms. One of Mom's sitters brought it show Mom one night this summer. I'm totally amazed by the bloom from its strange little skinny petals to its merry-go-round center.The amazing gifts of nature.

I really didn't plan to do any more mystery pictures, but since I'm not drawing for the winners of Orchard of Hope until Saturday, I said why not. You may be bored with the game, but I'm determined to stump some of you!! I probably won't. You guys are just too smart and good at figuring things out.  

I did finally contact the winners of the Shaker books which was the bonus prize I offered during the Christian Fiction Scavenger Hunt. I hope if you took part in that you had fun and maybe won a prize on one of the posts. My winners are Pam of CA and Katie of FL who both chose The Believer. The third winner was Linda of CA who picked The Gifted. I do appreciate all of you telling me what you liked about the scavenger hunt and leaving comments on Lyn's guest post here on the 18th. I read every comment, but was unable to answer every one after the 400 plus message started giving my computer a headache. :) Computers with headaches are not nice to be around.

So let's see how observant you are. And I promise. This is the last mystery photo for a while.

    1. You forgot about their very long tongue, Melanie. But we will see on Sunday if you're right or wrong.

  3. It's got to be a face of some sort, I'd say a dog or a cow. I suppose it could be a pig, too.

    1. You're really narrowing in down, Amy. What about a panda bear? :)

  5. It definitely looks like a cow's snout - but I'm not so sure it's not a dog too. I can't decide between the two! What fun this has been the past week or so. Thanks for doing it! :)

    1. Glad you've had fun with my guessing games, Susan. Now when I see something I'm going can I make that a mystery photo. Some of my pictures blue too much when I try to zero in on it.

    2. Not blue too much. Blur too much!! I think my mind must be in a blue.

    1. You sound pretty sure of yourself, Judy. Guess we'll see next week. I do have to say that I was scared to death of the big old sows when I was a kid. One chased me once when I was about little. I jumped in the car to escape. I thought it was going to eat me!! Guess I showed it when we had sausage that winter.

    1. Thanks for guessing, Gayle. Makes it fun when several join in. I'm still waiting for that panda bear guess. I guess bear noses don't look like cow noses. Of course, I'm not saying cow is right. We will see next week.

    1. Annette, I like that you're getting specific with your guess. Whether you're right or not remains to be seen. But you must know your pigs.

  15. Hi Ann, I think it's a calf's face. You must have so much fun laughing at all our silly guesses. I don't know about anyone else but I am having fun & can't wait to click over to your post to see what's next. Fun, fun, fun! Thanks, Ann, for the smiles....Linda

    1. I would never laugh at your guesses, Linda! Smile a little, maybe. The guesses so far have been fairly consistent. Cow, calf, pig or dog. I keep waiting for somebody to guess panda bear. The colors are right, aren't they? :)

      Glad you've enjoyed the mystery photos. What in the world am I going to write about next?

  16. Hi Ann! I am guessing a calf. Can't wait for the reveal!!
