Have Rochester over for tea...

Rochester over for tea? Why yes please, I think so...

I think the man would say yes. :)

Some of you may recall that as part of my All Things Jane series, a couple of months ago I introduced you to the work of Heather from Audrey Eclectic. At that time she had just added a Jane Eyre mug to her Etsy shop. I eagerly purchased one, and it has been proudly displayed on my bookshelves ever since -- I love staring at it too much to use it yet. *wink* You can revisit the Jane Eyre mug post here.

I was absolutely thrilled to learn that Heather has created a companion piece to her Jane Eyre mug, and equally thrilled to share the debut of her Mr. Rochester mug here!

Isn't he AMAZING? I'm in love. And I plan on purchasing a mug of my own soon, so Jane is no longer lonely from her perch on my bookshelves. :)

The reverse side of the mug features the quote, "Do you think me handsome?" -- obviously, my answer to that question is a resounding yes. :) As I told Heather in an e-mail conversation earlier today, I may be projecting here but I feel there's a little bit of Michael Fassbender's Rochester in her portrayal. :) Thoughts?

I hope if you like what you see that you'll be inspired to visit Heather's blog or shop to check out the rest of her work!

My Rochester radar just went off.
Do you think me handsome?
Oh hold the sugar, Edward. You're sweet enough!

Debra E. Marvin said...

Ruth. Seriously.

my word verification was


what? sorry to ruin the party but...okay. I now return you to the classy, cultured world of Booktalk & More.
Could I have a little more tea, please.

And I think I just found where to shop for Christmas presents for English teachers (and other readers!) Thanks for the heads up on this, Ruth!

@heidenkind - I KNOW!!! LOVE IT! :)

@Heather - Oh you're welcome! :) I am so seriously geeked out about this latest creation of yours it's not even funny. ;)

@Juju - Adorable, no? :)

@Debra - LOL! Love your "hold the sugar, Edward" comment! And that is too too funny about the word verification -- definitely leaves something to be desired there. LOL! :)

@Anne - Yay! You will LOVE working with Heather - she is so professional and nice! And her work is absolutely fabulous -- to date I've purchased both a mug and print from her, and the quality of the items are top-notch!

@Amber S. - You're welcome, glad you liked it too! :)

@ladykate63 - Hey! Thanks for stopping by. Maybe someday Heather will creat a Gizzy mug. ;) (Just an idea -- LOL!)

I love that you shared this -- because now I know what to get a friend of mine for Christmas. What do you get a girl who has everything? Jane and Edward mugs! =D

@Charity - Yay! Love it! :) And I am all about early Christmas shopping too - it's never too early to think about gift ideas! ;)
