About two years ago, I started collecting Caithness paperweights. I just love the look of them, and it wasn't until after I bought the first one that I realized they were made in Scotland.
The picture above shows my current collection. The one on the far left was the first one I bought. The green one, "Eagles in Flight", was the second. I got the red-and-purple one last fall. And the latest addition, the blue one on the right, is one I just bought yesterday, on an impromptu visit to the local store (Replacements, near Greensboro, NC) that sells them.
Aren't they beautiful? I find them very soothing and peaceful to look at.
