Belinda, Westmoore Pottery, and Other Such Fabulousness

It has taken me WAY TOO LONG to properly THANK longtime MOP friend, Belinda...for sending me the most amazing gift on the PLANET, yo...

Do you remember the glasses Claire, Jenny, Jamie and Ian were drinking from at Lallybroch??

How could anyone forget, really...when Jenny was being all bitchy sweet to Claire...and making her feel so awful welcome.  ;)



I - in typical Carol fashion - raved about them to Tracey in a MOP video...and told the world I MUST HAVE THEM.

And Belinda MADE MY DREAM COME TRUE!!!

Belinda's awesome friend, Mary Farrell has a Pottery shop called Westmoore Pottery in Seagrove, North Carolina...and sells STUNNING glasses like the ones shown here.

Per Belinda:  "She does a lot of work for Old Salem, which is near our precious Fraser's Ridge, where I know Claire did her shopping, therefore, having pottery that looks very similar to Mary's."

These are one of a kind pieces, y'all...so I don't know what she has in stock in the store these days.  You'll just have to stop in - or go to her website - to find out!

And this isn't just your average pottery shop.  Mary runs amazing events like 18th century cooking demonstrations in her shop's large fireplace.

So my sincere thanks go out to Belinda...for being such an amazing participant at MOP over the years.  It's kindof scary to jump into this blogging thing...but sometimes people come along and "hang out" with you online and discuss the books/show...and giggle at your videos, and the next thing you know, YEARS have passed...and it's still so much fun to blog about all things Outlander.

Thank you, Belinda, for being so incredibly generous and sending me something I will treasure forever.  :)
