Brown No More!

So I had such a great comment left on my Sunday Stash post yesterday that it has compelled me to participate in Sew Mama Sew’s Giveaway Day! When showing off some of the brown fabric pulled out of Grandma Sparkles’s Magic Suitcase (Leftovers) I mentioned that brown gets such a bad wrap for being, well, brown. Well, Lindi, God love her, was havin’ none. of. it.*

I avoided brown like the plague until I auditioned fabrics for a particular quilt and my usual black/grey/indigo just didn’t cut it, but I needed something … like brown! Upon trying to analyse what brown I needed, I started thinking coffee, latte, mocha, chocolate, toast … then I realised brown has lots of food associations so it can’t be all bad! LOL! Then, of course, there’s donkey, bronze, nut brown, walnut, oak, beech, copper … I no longer think brown when choosing, I think along these words. So much more enticing. 🙂

Girl, you have made your point. So in honour of you, I’m giving away these marbleised mocha, latte, copper, beech, cherrywood, cinnamon, bronze, chocolate, and Tim Tam (Original!) coloured fabrics to the blogosphere. They are of various sizes, but most are at least a quarter of a yard–enough to get you in a delicious mood, or ready to find a sweaty, leather-chapped cowboy. Mmmmm.
Leave a comment below with a new positive name for brown not mentioned above, and I’ll let the random number generator (that thing really needs a sexy new name) figure out who the winner is on Friday, May 10. International visitors are more than welcome because anyone can sparkle@mollisparkles.com. Oh, and for my personal favourite comment, I’m sendin’ you somethin’ extra special!

*For those newly initiated to MolliSparkles.com, when you see successive periods like that, fully picture me z-snapping the hell out of that statement.

    Lets see, what about nutmeg, tree bark, kangaroo (why not – lots of them are brown!), ochre, and my favourite: brunette (speaking as one!). As for random number generator, what if we gave it a name. Don't you think Randy the random num gen sounds a lot more friendly? Go brown!

  2. MsMidge says:

    Ummmmmm, caramello?

  3. Lindi says:

    well how about rawhide brown for that hot sweaty cowboy? ;)or golden brown for the beer he'll need? lol then of course, he'll have to shine his spurs so they don't end up rusty brown….. oh dear, I could go on….rofl

  4. Geo Mama says:

    As the weather improves in Canada I thinking of drinking a nice cold Ale or Stout on my patio. So my brown words for the day: Ale, Stout and Beer Bottle.

  5. Katie says:

    Brown is my FAVORITE color. . . and the brown I like best. . is a dark, chocolate-y "espresso" brown ;c) So, espresso. . yes. . LOL ;c)

  6. I love a sepia toned world Molli. So lovely to see your face in the give away roll.

  7. Gene Black says:

    Dark Chocolate, espresso, pine, tootsie roll mmmmm browns to make the colors sparkle. (you already used my favorite TimTam – you should see my TimTam slam video!)

    Now, I suppose I need to go find my leather chaps and have them on so I am ready to be found!
    (((shiny hugs!!!))))

  8. Brownies 🙂 YUM!

    Others… Mahogany, leather, honey, mocha, foxy….

    I think that's it, for now 🙂

  9. Paula says:

    I love a bit of buff myself, and have been known to fawn over rich dark amber.

  10. Jenna says:

    Triple Chocolate Fudge…mmmm. I want brownies now looking at all that brown fabric. 🙂

  11. pennydog says:

    I was ribbed only last weeend for not being anti-brown and wrote a blog post on it, spooky!

    Tree bark?

  12. dagan says:

    I use a lot of kraft-paper brown in my life. How about antiqued book page? Horn button brown? Fresh Nutella brown? My personal favorite, though you wouldn't see this selling any kind of brown, is the dark-brown-on-my-dog's-ear-that-connotes-where-his-fur-is-as-soft-as-velvet. 😀

    Thanks for the giveaway! I have to admit, Caramello and Brunette are awesome suggestions, too!

  13. Sarah says:

    My first choice would have been chocolate but it's been used. How about something about a tabby cat. I've got 2 and there is brown fur on all my quilts LOL!

  14. Jane S. says:

    You said it yourself, Miss Molli, how about leather? 😉

  15. dortha says:

    How about coffee, hot cocoa. I like brown. It makes the other colors prettier.

  16. camelama says:

    I cannot BELIEVE I am going to suggest this, but … BUCKEYE! It's the Ohio state tree/nut. It's a deeeelicious chocolate/peanutbutter treat. It's the color of a deer's eye. As for why I can't believe I suggested it, well, I was born and raised in Michigan, and oh we two states had/have QUITE a rivalry. 😉 In the 70's there was a popular bumper sticker in Michigan that was "OHHOWIHATEOHIOSTATE". Hee.

  17. Amy says:

    brownstone!

  18. Kate says:

    What about chestnut? Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  19. charlotte says:

    My all time favorite came from my crayon box when I was a kid…Burnt Sienna. I loved that color and every time I got a box with enough colors to have that one, I used it down to the nubbin. I wonder if they still make it. They renamed a lot of the colors so maybe it has a new name too. Wait, I just looked in my grandsons crayon can…TaDa!!! Burnt Sienna lives!! Also sepia, mahogany and, yes, tumbleweed!!

  20. Elke says:

    In my colour box it was a colour called Umbra. I don´t know, if it is inside today, too.

  21. bab5313 says:

  22. Ali says:

    I'm just going to say nut. Certainly a large gamut of shades available…
    Ha, and I remember the blog post about your trip to Intrepid Thread.. I almost took a road trip down to CA just to go see her shop this month but I have to wait til later in the year, I'm still so envious of you!

  23. How about brunette! I'm happen to be one 🙂

  24. Skwishee says:

    Caramel? Hot chocolate? There are so many lovely browns out there 🙂

  25. Heather says:

    Cafe-au-lait! Mmmm.

  26. Pip says:

    Drats, Charlotte beat me to Burnt Sienna, (wasn't that the name of a song) so I'm going to say Wenge (I don't know how to pronounce it though) but I know it is a deep, dark chocolatey brown, I just thought of another one: Truffle, I like that one, sounds edible.

  27. jmniffer says:

    Cocoa, caramel, cinnamon…burbon, brandy, cognac. Thanks for the chance at your giveaway.

  28. pupton says:

    Tiramisu for a coffee brown and cream beige. Yum! Now I'm hungry!

    cinnamon would be my name for it

  34. MC says:

    Caramel Corretto! I'm actually a big fan of brown as a neutral, it's more organic looking than black, and doesn't get dirty like white.

  35. Ellie says:

    My first thought was cardboard brown – and even though it was filled with the excitement of getting a new package in the mail it just didn't do it for me. Then your cowboy comment reminded me that half the fun of getting a package in the mail is the handsome ups delivery man that brings it to my door then….. BAM … UPS man brown!

    Also, a wise woman once said to me "Poop is brown, brown is not poop."

  36. Holly U says:

    Mulch, chocolate, wheat bread…

  37. Emily C says:

    I always liked cedar and fir.

  40. Debra Lee says:

    I would say woodsy colors!

  41. The O's says:

    Molasses, Reeses peanut butter cups, caramalised balsamic vinegar, a Hershey's Kiss, terracotta and the colour that will maqke you go 'eww' – liver! Love your work Molli!

  42. Sue says:

    So I'm not a coffee drinker but there is hot chocolate, cherry ripe, Ayers rock, sand and shell and nugget

  43. Kelly G says:

    OK – so I thought and I thought some more!
    What about Dirt Brown! LOL – but then there is red dirt, black dirt, brown dirt, sandy dirt, clay clump dirt. This would also more suitable for a garden/outdoorsey type of person, which I am not. SIGH, oh well! Got to give me a gold star for trying.

    braydonandkel@bigpond.com

  44. espresso, cocoa, sand, oak, hazel, earth, chestnut, pine, coriander seed, hay, there are so many shades in nature, the list is endless.

  51. I reckon Milo, because it's yummy and looks a lot like Molli (I don't know, do you look like milo? In writing you do!). I was blasting off through the blogosphere, entering giveaways like a mad lady, and was glad that yours wasn't a "follow me or die" kinda giveaway because it saves time. But I like your style, so I think I'll stay. If you'll have me!

  52. Thrifty Finn says:

    Ganache! Slightly glossy dark brown.

  53. Coconut Creme Latte… as I look into my coffee cup (it's early!).

  54. JLVerde says:

    Coper was what came to mind to me because I loooove copper. Who doesn't like the colour of a nice new shiny penny?

    Something else – hot chocolate, velvet, walnut, oak and what I'm drinking right now, iced tea.

  56. Kimberly says:

  58. Judy H says:

    the fabrics remind me of a pile of autumn leaves…..one that I wouldn't mind walking through.

  59. atabanana29 says:

    Dirty Darryl. OH, I love Darryl from The Walking Dead, and he always looks so good all brown and messy from being dirty…sigh…. So brown can be such a beautiful color! :)atabanana29(at)gmail(dot)com

  60. ikkinlala says:

    How about beer colours? Lager is more yellowish, but ales, stouts, and porters are definitely shades of brown.

  61. mmmmm fudge! i love using brown in quilts… actually every quilt i have ever made has had brown of some sort in it.

  62. Linda says:

  67. giddy99 says:

    Here are some positive brown names, I think?
    * Lifeguard Tan
    * Naked Native (might have to distinguish by country/coastline, but that's just more browns, isn't it?)
    * Leather Chaps
    * Bucking Bronco

  68. Cloud 9 says:

    I adore brown mixed with reds and blues. I go more for flavor names like nutmeg, pecan, cinnamon, and chocolate.

  69. m hoch drei says:

    sunny skin ?

    Have a sunny day and thank you for the chance !

  70. Tawny says:

    Ack! You've missed the most important name for a tone of brown – TAWNY!! Maybe I'm just partial to that one because that's my name. But still a light yellowey brown is very nice and Tawny-like. (PS: why my mother named me after such a strange colour is beyond me, but I like it!)

  71. KT says:

    cinnamon, mouse, latte, nutmeg…and I got plenty of not so good ones too!

  72. Aoife says:

    Truffle and Mocha are all I can come up with… Though I think Cadbury Twirl would be a great name for a quilt that used chocolate, purple, and yellow!

    in case the computer gods hate me and i'm a no-replier, you can also find me at: irish (dot) thredhead (at) gmail (dot) com

  73. How about UPS Man Brown? That could be a good or bad thing depending on your UPS man. 😉

  74. Purl Buttons says:

    CARAMEL Which I like so VERY much. (Better even, than chocolate) There are so many great answers there, I have no hope of being the favorite one but maybe Mr. Random Number Generator will choose me. C'mon, Randy, whose your favorite number? It's me, isn't it?

  75. Sarah says:

    Teddy Bear? that could be a shade of brown.

  84. Esther F. says:

    Treacle? Or how about something a little bit more exotic… STROOP, a Dutch apple product you put on bread, yummy! There is a very runny kind you put on pancakes, but that is not what I mean. The "real stuff" is as thick as peanutbutter. Oh, and then there is a cookie with sirup in it called "stroopwafel" ohw even more yummy!

  125. Saraccino says:

    I really like to use brown in my clothing. Sound maybe boring in the beginning but all shades of brown are just so natural colours and they go well together with a lot of other colours, just bringing them to life!

    And from the shades… starting from natural linen you could already have there your first really light shade of brown going down to a brown that can be nearly black from old and used cherry or waltnut tree wood.

    Sand is also rather a shade of brown than yellow. But yellow, orange or red, if they turn very dark, they all create shades of brown. It is warm, welcoming. Earth colours.

    But I never think of brown as brown. I mean the same way I wouldn't tell you I like green but rather that I love a intense emerald or bright pistachio! I am mostly also going rather for the images of colours inside my head than names if I start to think about a new project ^^

    Down to other shades of brown not mentioned before:

    Cologne or Cassel earth (Kasselbraun in german)

    Or how about brown gemstones / fossiles?
    Tiger eye, Agate, Feldpar, Torumaline, Jasper, Carnelian, Ammonites

    So, I run out of ideas by now ^^Thanks for the chance to win!

  126. Helen says:

    Oh Molli! Umm, brown, yeah, I am with you… How about mud! Mud is pretty cool, sloopy, sloppy, slurpy mud. Mudcake… Mmmm, mud cake…. Mud cake is brown too! I fact a lot of cakes! Oh and chocolate crackles! I live them, um, snuffy the snuffleuffagus on Sesame Street! He was pretty cool. Ok I am just talking about s*** now and we all know no one was supposed to go there… Too tired! Night Molli 🙂

  127. Bethany says:

    oh my I always have to go with chocolate or mocha. I like sand or desert or paperbag…thanks for the chance.

  128. You're making me hungry! How about wheat, caramel, fawn, chestnut, russet…

    Thanks for the chance – I have two giveaways happening too: http://www.craftyhour.com

  129. Margaret says:

    Cherry, Mahogany, Walnut- wood names? Thanks for the chance to win!

  130. I have used brown in two of my last quilts! Jungle quilts that are brown and green. I like to think of it as the color of earth, soil, tree stump, fallen leaves. If I had to choose a yummy color name for brown it would be Caramel. 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!

  131. Bonnie58 says:

  152. Leo says:

    I had to think about my "street dog brown" coloured hair (a bit of all shades mixed together) – but that's not a positive name, so how about toffee, rock sugar, bretzle, ovaltine, forest honey …

  153. Abby says:

    I'm good for taupe. But toast is a great colour. Thanks for the generous giveaway.

  154. sharpie says:

    HAHAHA. I almost spit out my {brown} TEA as I read through this. And then of course had to reread with the z-snaps just to make sure I wasn't missing out. (I was). Miss Molli you've got a new fan–though I can tell you're not wanting in that department 😉 I'm going with earl grey or scotch, because every other word that comes to mind has been taken!

  155. Harley Dee says:

    Couldn't help myself, all I can think is Tanned Hide! 🙂

    hayatiggs at comcast dot net

  156. Conker! Except it really doesn't sound "sexy". How about "Mexican Chocolate" or if we're going with brands "Bournvita Brown" (I don't know if it is UK only, but Bournvita is a delicious hot cholate and malt drink – just add the powder to hot milk)

  157. tlcala4me says:
