We have a winner! And we’re not hippos!

Who knew my readers were such an diverse and eclectic bunch when it came to wall color?

Not me, that’s who.

You guys are so into color! Red walls, green walls, blue, chocolate, pumpkin, teal, lavender  … pretty much every primary, secondary, tertiary, quaternary, quinary, senary, septenary, octonary, nonary and denary color on the proverbial color wheel.

Do actual color wheels even go that much into detail?

Did you guys even know that anything came after tertiary?

See? You learn something new every day! I learned about all this “ary” stuff yesterday, so I’m still waiting to learn something new today. I hope it’s something useful and nothing like a week ago, when I learned that hippos who are itching for a fight point their bottoms at each other, wag their tails and flick feces at one another.

How is that going to help me in life?

As of 9:00 pm eastern time yesterday, there were 312 entries. I asked to choose one random number between 1 and 312, inclusive, and this was its response:




And the corresponding comment was:




Congratulations, Sarah! Contact me at to claim your prize!

Thanks to all of you who participated in this giveaway and I’d also like to give a big shout out to Cheryl for her beautiful work.

And considering the love/hate relationship between my two daughters, I’d like to take a moment to thank God for birthing us as homo sapiens and not as hippos.



They look so much nicer when they’re not covered with flecks of poo.

    Congratulations Sarah. I hope you have fun picking out your piece of jewelry.

    Thank you very much for all the lovely comments everyone. They are much appreciate. I was even inspired to create a few new pieces with some of the color combinations for wall color. Hey, whatever works right? Walls, jewelry it s all colors that we find attractive.

    A big thank you to Andy and her mass writing skills. Your words are uplifting and create a smile on my face.
