There's still time…

… to submit an entry for the Design Miss Gwen’s Coat of Arm’s contest!

The winning entry will be featured on an item (mug, t-shirt, tote bag) of the winner’s choice. Just email me with a jpeg of your design by October 1.

To kick off the heraldic display, here’s Miss Eliza’s version of Miss Gwen’s coat of arms:

Anyone have any suggestions for a motto?

    It needs something Latin, damn me for taking French in school…

    I am not that creative but i love the crossed umbrellas and the plumeria.. (my all time favorite flower that smells heavenly)

    I love this. It’s very pretty. I think the top hats on the bottom are a great touch!

    Miss Eliza: how about “in parasols nos confídimus” – in parasols we trust (at least that’s the Google Translate phrasing)?

    My entry is not the least bit pretty but it gets the point across (pun intended) and is full of symbolism. It also has an approprite albeit fractured Latin motto….

    caveo minae–allegedly Beware the Parasol? Also, according to a google-based translation. Never took it in school, alas.

    How about “To Prod, or Not to Prod”. 😛
