My Outlander-Appreciating Husband

My husband Craig SO gets my Outlander obsession.  Here’s my proof-  lookie what he got me for Christmas!

The wine glass charms are my favorite.  On the front are the American book releases and on the back are the UK versions!  That’s GENIUS, and duly appreciated by this Outlander fan.  Plus, they combine 2 of my favorite hobbies,  Outlander & vino  = )

The coffee mug is awesome, it just doesn’t get much better than starting off your day with a little Outlander java- am I right?

The T-shirt says it all:  “Jamie and Claire make Edward and Bella look like casual acquaintances.”  In your face twihards! (just kidding, I love Twilight too lol)

I hope Outlander fans everywhere had happy holidays too.  Happy New Year everyone!

      Isn’t it sweet though? I’m using the ‘Outlandish Companion’ charm at the moment- looks great with the chardonnay, lol!. I’ll be happy to stop by, us Outlander fans have to stick together!

    The Outlander Book Beads US edition are among the hardest to make in my Gallery. The dark striking covers DG chooses are beautiful – but extremely hard to miniaturize. Your DH deserves much applause for his resourcefulness. Thanks for the feature on your beautiful blog. Slainte!

      Thank YOU for creating them! Like I said, GENIUS! I’m all about integrating the Outlander experience into my everyday life, and these charms do that beautifully. I look forward to perusing your other Outlander creations on your website

    lol. Those are pretty great, and I agree with the poster! I might need to find myself one of those. Cafepress by any chance?

    I need to get my husband to read the series (he did read and enjoy Twilight, so it isn’t an unreasonable dream). However, my proof that he gets the new Outlander obsession, is that he let me make him a kilt, and he wears it for me, even though his Scottish blood is several generations removed, and he always swore “I’m not wearing a kilt, Shawn.” He hasn’t worn it in public yet, but that might be for the best, as he’s pretty irresistible in it, and I don’t want a yard full of salivating women distracting me from my writing. (You can see the process here:

    Oh dear. The memory is distracting me from my writing. See? Definitely for the best.

      Aye, for the shirt and the mug. That is SO awesome that your husband wears a kilt for you lol! I’d be happy to check out your blog, looking forward to it : )

        Hubby has now reached Echo in the Bone. He’s powerlessly in the grip of DG. 🙂 I love our Outlander conversations! I think I need to start working on a Scottish holiday. I hear my father-in-law wants him to come help with technology at the Rattray Clan gathering in August… Hmmm!

        My husband is inching through Dragonfly in Amber- he was mad when he realized that Claire had come back, but likes it better now that they’re ‘in France’ lol. Is your husband’s family Scottish/of Clan Rattray?

        There is Clan Rattray in his blood. It’s quite a ways back, but it’s there. There is some MacNevin on his mom’s side that’s a little closer. Rattrays are associated with Murrays, so I like to think he’s related to Ian, one of my favorite Outlander men… 😉

    ha. You can see the process of making the kilt there, not the process of dealing with the yardful of salivating women.

    Oh- since I discovered the series a few months ago, I’ve written quite a few blogs that relate to it. Feel free to check them out here: I’d appreciate your thoughts and observations!
