Miss Gwen's Coat of Arms

There’s an old Shropshire saying: “Where there’s a sheep, there’s a win.”

Okay, not really, but with crossed parasols on a field of sheep, there was a landslide win for Coat of Arms #4, Shelli’s entry.

Here’s the official Miss Gwen Coat of Arms:

(Motto: “By the swift hand of God. But if not…”)

Congrats, Shelli! Just let me know whether you’d like your coat of arms on a mug, tote, or T-shirt, and I’ll whisk something your way.

Compliments go to Alexa, Cassandra, Jeffrey and Miss Eliza, for their elegant and eye-catching creations. Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us!

I accidentally pulled two names from the hat instead of one when choosing a winner for the signed copy of The Deception of the Emerald Ring, so we have two winners: Gwen of Comment #10 and Alice of Comment #47. Just email me your details and I’ll send you your books!

    First-first-first to congratulate you, Shelli! Your coat of arms is suitably purple and the motto is perfectly edgy like Miss Meadows. The design is appropriately feminine and I choose to believe that, like her heraldry, beneath Miss Gwen’s prickly armor resides a dormant heart, yet unaware that it craves romance.
