Amazing Austenesque Giveaway for Austenesque Extravaganza!!


Many of you may know I am helping Meredith Esparza, along with Angie Kroll, this year with her AustenesqueExtravaganza: A month long celebration Austenesque authors and THEIR novels.
Over the past couple months, I have been in contact with several Etsy shops and other Jane Austen related companies in regards to this year’s AMAZING Austenesque Giveaway! The response has been REMARKABLE! These shops have been more than generous to us and our readers with their giveaway items. Team Austenesque is so ecstatic about these giveaways, we couldn’t keep them a secret any longer. So, without further ado, here they are, along with information about each company!

Laura Boyle is  fascinated by all aspects of Jane Austen’s life. As the proprietor of Austenation: Regency Accessories, she is able to indulge her passion for the Regency by creating custom hats, bonnets, reticules and more for customers around the globe. Her greatest joy is the time she is able to spend at home with her family (one amazing husband, three adorable children and a one very strange dog.) Cooking with Jane Austen and Friends, is her first book.

Laura Boyle has been beyond generous in her donations! She has donated a copy of her cookbook, Cooking with Jane Austen and Friends, a set of 6 Jane Austen/Hugh Thompson postcards, a set of 4 rainbow colored Jane Austen cards (in green), and an Anne and Wentworth Clothespin Doll Christmas Ornament Kit!



The true story behind this shop is that at a certain point in our lives we were depressed and out of job. Not able to find new ways to waste our infinite free time anymore, we decided to start working on something we really loved, just for fun. We were probably watching too many costume dramas and reading too much Jane Austen (but there is never enough Jane in your life!) at the time and that's how our PemberleyPond website was born. We started our jurney from Pride and Prejudice obviously and then moved on to other beloved books and authors.
We love books, good stories, great characters and anything able to fill out little heads with wonderful images... that we later try to put on paper.
We can easily say that meeting Mr Darcy was one of the best thing that ever happened to us! :) :)
PS: Mr Thornton >>>>>>>>>> Mr Darcy


Pemberley Pond has a wonderful collection of Jane Austen related posters, notecards, bookmarks, and notebooks! These ladies have been kind enough to donate their Jane Austen Bibliography poster for our AMAZING giveaway! 

I think I was born with rosebuds in my soul.I love pretty, delicate things and I adore creating collages from collected, pretty ephemera. I also have loved Jane Austen since I first read Pride and Prejudice when I was fifteen. When I went to college, I studied costume design and preferred making anything that looked like it could be in a Merchant Ivory production. When you combine all of these things, you get what you see in my shop. It is the reason I came up with the idea for my Jane Austen Journal!

Dorothy Jane makes the most beautiful journals, bookmarks and gift tags ANY Austen lover would want! (I know I want them all)! Dorothy Jane has graciously donated her Jane Austen Journal to Austenesque Extravaganza. One lucky recipient will win this beautiful journal!



ScentsnSensibility

ScentsnSensibility on Etsy is inspired by the literary works of Jane Austen.
I make items such as hand poured soaps, hand poured candles, room freshners, Bath Bombs, solid lotion bars whipped body butters, seasonal items and other Austen inspired treasures for lovers of Jane Austen and the Regency Era!

Doesn't ScentsnSensibility's products sound wonderful? I know right now I want to curl up with Persuasion or Pride and Prejudice and take a long, hot bath with some of this lovely soap or a bath bomb and a fresh cup of tea.
Meghan from ScentsnSensibility has sent us an Emma Woodhouse and a Mr. Knightly soap to giveaway to one of our lucky participants in Austenesque Extravaganza. Thank you, Meghan. I am sure this lucky winner will enjoy her Knightly baths!

Patricia Marq: Amor Amas Amat
When I was twelve, I came across a small calligraphy kit that I used to teach myself the basics of calligraphy. Over the years, I learned more about calligraphy and started to use what I learned to make cards and presents for people I knew. I became very interested in illuminated letters, particularly those decorated with leaves and I would make initials. However, a month ago for my birthday I bought myself some new inks. I put all of my inks in one place and realized I had about 24 inks and I got this massive creative energy I needed to expel. I decided to combine my illuminated letters with a new script I had never used before to do quotes. I have been a fan of Jane Austen for the seven years since I’ve read Pride and Prejudice. When I was thinking of what quotes to do, I naturally gravitated to the quotes that I had memorized from Pride and Prejudice. After doing two quotes from Pride and Prejudice, my friends Erica Monroe, Jessica Grey, and Nancy Kelley convinced me to sell them on Etsy. I sell other quotes besides Austen but the Austen quotes are my favorite. While the other quotes are philosophical comments on love, Mr. Darcy and Captain Wentworth’s quotes were words meant for the love of their lives and had a backstory that made them even more special. 



To help Patty celebrate the launch of her new Etsy shop, as well as celebrate our shared love for all things Austen, Patty has enthusiastically given us one of her beautiful calligraphy creations! For one of our lucky readers, we have Mr. Darcy's famous proposal print! Isn't it magnificent! You must check out her store!




Antique Fashionista

When you read a book about a different time period, do you ever wonder what clothes people wore in them? What does "a dress of sprigged muslin" look like? And what is a "dress with puffed sleeves"? What is a chemise? A leghorn hat? A stomacher? I always wondered and finally started researching and painting them myself. Great books are my passion and antique fashion has become one too. I might not be an encyclopedia for all your period fashion needs, but you will be able to picture your favorite heroines in their appropriate period clothing.

Masha Laurence donated these magnificent Anne & Wentworth and Catherine & Henry 5X7 prints! Masha truly captures the beauty of the period in her pieces! 

Bingley Teas
Ms. Jane Austen, well known authoress during the Regency period of timeless favorites such as Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion has held a longstanding place our hearts.
Our own company name is drawn from one of her characters, who was quick to approve of everyone he met and always approachable in his manner.
 This inspiration spilled over into our Jane Austen Tea Series. Characters from our beloved author's novels have been specifically paired with very particular premium teas and tea blends. Each was carefully chosen to reflect that character's personality and well known traits. We hope you will enjoy, what we find a natural combination of Jane Austen novels and Tea!

Often when I am reading a Regency romance or an Austenesque novel that takes place during the Regency, all I want is to sip some hot tea while I am whisked away to another time. Bingley Teas fully offers this experience for readers with their Jane Austen tea line. We are luck enough to have Compassion for Mrs. Bennet's Nerves tea to add to our ever-growing list of Awesomesque Giveaways! 

Jane Austen Centre
This website features an online magazine with over 500 articles. You will find articles on every aspect of Jane Austen’s life in Georgian Bath and work.  It is a compendium of recipes and historical observations and what to do in Bath UK. 
Just a click away is our wonderful online giftshop which is crammed with Austen and Regency themed goodies. There is extensive information about the annual Festival and Festival events and dates and times. The publication Regency World magazine, a full colour glossy is available online or from our giftshop. There is a comprehensive list of Austen and Regency historical related links. Finally, if you want more we offer a free monthly E-newsletter. This will keep you up to date with all the news, gossip and celebrities from  the world of our favourite author.

The Jane Austen Centre has been ever so kind in donating a copy of Jane Austen, A Celebration of Her Life and Work. This is a beautifully bound coffee table book!


**NEW ADDITION!!**

I have always loved to draw but didn’t think I could draw people.  Jan Hahn, author of An Arranged Marriage and The Journey,  mentioned, one day,  that it would be nice if I could draw some pictures or scenes with Darcy and Lizzy.  I thought about it and then decided to give it a try. Since I love the 1995 PnP miniseries so much, I decided to use scenes from it as my inspiration.  That is how I got started. My first attempt was the card that has Darcy and Lizzy together in the woods of Pemberley. I tried to make them NOT look like Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth. I changed up the clothes, the nose and jaw line. This also was not a scene from the miniseries. I drew pictures of each and put them together with the woods as a backdrop.  The music room drawings of ‘The Look’, I did try to make them look like Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth, as Lizzy and Mr. Darcy.
I hope to draw most of my favorite scenes.
I have a website, www.jt-originals.com, but I do not have the cards on it yet. If anyone is interested, they may contact me via email. I do take Visa, MC and PayPal.

Janet Taylor has been very kind to us and has donated two sets of cards: One 10 card set of Darcy and Elizabeth in the woods at Pemberley, and another 10 card set of Darcy and Elizabath, "The Look" (5 cards of Darcy and 5 cards of Elizabeth)! In ADDITION, Janet has also given us one each of a 5x7 card of Darcy and Elizabeth in the music room at Pemberley! Thank you so much, Janet! Your work is wonderful!

    - the journal - it's stunning! (what a treasure!)
    - the book - it is HUGE! Coffee-table-size!
    - the ornament kit - just adorable! I love the idea of Anne and Wentworth hanging from the Christmas tree!

  29. Well Jakki that was very well done. What a great job you are doing. I had no idea that etsy had so many items related to Austen. This certainly gives one something to shop for besides the usual vintage and hand crocheted or handcrafted other items. Since I have a horrible cough and sore throat at the moment the Bingley Teas sounded specially up my alley. Tho' i love everything from the soaps to prints to journals. Ooohh I need, need that "Inn at Lambton" bundle. I don't have those books. It's very clever to be naming these by residence/place/whatever. Anyway very creative - I love it. I'm so glad Meredith has a helper since she has so much on her plate. Great to see you all so organized and orderly. Congrats on the upcoming event we're all so excited!

Overwhelming for me (!) rightly qualifies this Austenesque Extravaganza ('tis too much! ;) ) and both books in the Inn at Lambton bundle interest me, since they seem to have original plots, and I've read good reviews about them. The book offered by the Jane Austen Center also seems a good book for any Jane Austen fan... like me! Thanks for the giveaway!
