PURPLE PLUMERIA Mugs– and Contest
After last week’s contest, I received the impression that people rather liked the idea of these Passion of the Purple Plumeria mugs.
The talented Sharlene has designed a whole range of Purple Plumeria e-cards like this one for me, all of which can, similarly, be applied to a mug.
Below, you can find (almost) the entire Purple Plumeria e-card collection. If you were designing a mug, which picture would you choose?
Next week, I’ll tally up the votes and pick three people at random to receive the mugs of their choice. I’ll also see about finding a way to make the five or six most popular mugs generally available.
(As a side note, feel free to share any of the e-cards below on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, or wherever! Just right click to save and then share.)
Now, without further ado, the Purple Plumeria e-card collection:
(With coat of arms by Shelli!)
Aren’t these all fabulous? Which is your favorite?
My favourite is definitely number three – Keep Calm and Carry a Parasol indeed!
Second, number 12
Third, number 7
Love them all! But my votes go to
Can’t wait for the book. Thank you for all the fun.
Number one is my favorite – but they are all fun!
Super cool! These cards are awesome.
3 is my favorite!
1 and 12 are my favorites!
No. 6 is my favorite. *swoon*
I’ll have to go with #3, because indeed, I love it!
But I also love #7, #11 and #5, in that order or any other!
COngratulations to the designer of the cards, they are so great, all of them!!!
They’re all so beautiful but no. 8 is the cherry on top 🙂
Keep Calm and Carry a parasol! But I do love the coat of arms with sheep and parasols.
I like the 1st choice (which is actually what is pictured on the mug). My reasons being – it has the beautiful graphic of the cover art as well as the parasol quote, which has a bit of insouciant (did I spell that right?) humor that I think illuminates the series nicely.
1 – 12
2 – 1
3 – 8
Love them all!
My top three are #7, #1, and #10. #7 on a lavender mug, or maybe a royal purple one, for contrast. All are well done, but those are my favorites. Can’t wait until they’re available! I’m a mug collecting fiend.
So fabulous! Can’t wait to read it.
I love them all Sharlene, but I think 10 and 11 are great
1 – 11
2 – 6
3 – 1
I’m in LOVE with number 11. (It’s dark and mysterious.)
…with 4 and 6 in high seconds.
1,3, and 8 are my faves!
Being from the Pacific Northwest I like #13 first. Also 7 and 1.
I like all of them, but especially #10.
My favorite is number 3!!!
I’m voting for 14. I love it. These are so cool.
Thanks everyone for your very kind comments about the graphics. They were great fun to make, because this is a fabulous book.
I will say I am partial to the ones that include the cover, as it is a fantastic one and it has Lauren’s name on it.
If I was voting, which I am not, I would pick one that included the cover art.
They are all great!! Love 12 and 1.
My favorite is number 4! Purple IS the new black!
What a tough decision! The cards are all gorgeous!!
My favorite is #1!
love # 12 and 13
Thanks for the contest!
I’ll take one of each! But if I have to pick –
My favourite is 12. I also really like 10 and 1 as well. They are all so cool, I wish I could get mugs with all these designs on them!!!!!!!
I love number 12!
They are all great but number 1 is my favorite!
I love #3 and #12. 3rd choice is 13.
#3 is my first pic. Especially that shade of purple.
Second choice is #12
I love number 4 and number 5!
I absolutely love them all BUT…since we had to choose…
#11 – first choice
#7 – second choice
#8 – third choice
Can’t wait for this to come out. I have always love Miss Gwen….she is so feisty and sassy!
2, 4, & 5 are my favorites (and I like 6, 8, 9, and 11, too).
#3 would make the most visually appealing mug, if it was purple all the way around.
#5 is the most visually appealing ecard to me. I like the quote, I like the design, and I like that it provides the salient details for the book’s release. So if you’re ranking these, my first vote is for #5, my second for #3
1,3, and 7 are my favorites
They’re all great, but I especially like 7, 10 & 12
I vote for:
1st – #1
2nd – #7
3rd – #11
All would be great! Really hope this works out.
i agree with 3 being all purple with those words. maybe not so bright a purple. it would win if that was the case.
That would be #14, 12, 7
They are all so lovely and clever!
I think I like #s 1 and 2 the best.
P.S. Got my signed bookplate for Purple today.
Thanks so much!
I’m a big fan of silhouettes som I choose #1.
#3 is my favorite. Very clever. Makes me smile 🙂
Difficult choice! I think 3 is my favorite and then 5 and 11.
No 3 : Genius – it’s Miss Gwen in a nutshell.
No 11 : Did Turnip Fitzhugh get his hands on an ARC of Miss Gwen’s magnum opus ?
No.10 : And now we know why Miss Gwen never has a bad skin day – She wears a mask !
I like 10 and 12
Thanks everyone for the very kind comments on the graphics. They were fun to make because this is a fabulous book. You are in for a very special treat when it is released. Miss Gwen is at her best!
Enjoy and always remember “Parasols Up”
I like 7,2 & 1
Here’s my lineup:
1. = #14
2. = #4
3. = #10
I like 1 & 2. But they’re all fun!
Although they are all great. I think #4 & #5 are the best. For anyone who is not familiar with the series those two e-cards market the book with quotes for the story. My favorite for a mug that I would purchase is #3 & #7. I hope we can buy them in the future. I love this book series.
Love #3 so much it’s my Facebook profile pic!
For some reason #10 appeals to me.
I think number 8 will look beautiful on a mug:)
I have to vote for number 14! Sharlene named it after me! Thanks Lauren and Sharlene!
1, 2, 10, 11. They are all fabulous though and after reading through the e-cards, I am even MORE excited for The Passion of the Purple Plumeria…and I didn’t think that was possible! SOOOO EXXCITTEEDDD!
#10 – it’s what Miss Gwen really wants to be.
I love #1!
Number 3 Keep calm and carry a parasol
Keep calm and carry a parasol is my fave
Numbers 1 and 2 are my favorites!
They are all good, but # 1 is my favorite! Sooooo ready to read this book!
They are all great, but I think my favorite is #10.
Number 13 is me all the way!
My top 3 favorites are:
Oh, my~ I Love them all and couldn’t possibly make up my mind and settle on just one ~

Well – so hard to pick! I love them all, but my favorites are 1,2,4 & 11. And would be a great idea to be able to buy them! 🙂
I like number 2 (the coat of arms is brilliant) the best, followed by number 1 and number 3.
#1 is my favorite,but I like them all.
I am posting again, because I posted it on the wrong place. Sorry.
I love Number 1! The silhouette with parasol captures the mysterious nature, and the historical period in a delightful manner!
