Jane Austen? Yes, Please!

It just so happens that I have a Jane Austen quote hanging above my computer.  It’s particularly appropriate this time of year in New Zealand {humidity: 100%, temps in the mid-70sF}.

I love it despite the fact that the artist misspelled Jane Austen’s name {horrors!}.  I’ve kind of been on the lookout for something similar ever since I bought it, and recently turned to Etsy to see if they had anything that looked interesting.  I was amazed at how much Jane Austen stuff you can find on there – it’s fabulous!  Check out some of my favorites…

Cuff from JezebelCharms – Quoting Mr. Darcy in “Pride & Prejudice”

“You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”

I love the colors of these cuffs, and I got a kick out of this next one…

Cuff from JezebelCharms – Quoting Mr. Knightley in “Emma”

“Men of sense, whatever you may choose to say, do not want silly wives.”

But it’s not just Jane Austen jewelery that caught my eye.  I love these mugs from Brookish

Happiness Mug from Brookish – Quoting Jane in “Pride and Prejudice”

What a great quote to start off the day :-) I have to admit that I’m more of a “Persuasion” fan than a “Pride and Prejudice” kind of girl.  Don’t get me wrong, P&P is definitely up there, but “Persuasion” edges it out by just a hair.  This next mug would be my choice for morning coffee {if I drank it!}…

Half Agony mug from Brookish – Quoting Capt. Wentworth in “Persuasion”

“I am half agony, half hope.”

I suppose that, depending on your mood, you could choose to either drink out of the “hope” or “agony” side, or maybe have a sip from both sides if you weren’t sure :-)

I loved these prints from BookFiend, all of which can come in different background colors…

Book is Well-Written Print from BookFiend

You Pierce My Soul print by BookFiend – Capt. Wentworth in “Persuasion”

Then, to go along with my “Persuasion” coffee mug, I could use these “Pride and Prejudice” coasters from SherryLynns.  Perfect!

I’ve definitely got my Jane Austen fix for the day :-)  Now, to find out if any of these sellers will ship to New Zealand…

  1. i LOVE the half agony, half hope mug. I am NOT a morning person and my husband, wonderful as he is, often brings me a cup of tea or coffee in bed since he has to get up earlier than me for work. Seriously thinking of getting this cup for myself (and my sister!)

  2. very cool! oh my gosh i love that Jane Austen quote ‘If a book is well written I always find it too short’ – soooo true!! i want that one.

  3. I have a Jane Austen quote mug myself. BUT I totally need that Run Mad quote. How fitting is that? Also, I think my son Pierce needs the Pierce quote ;-)
