Lord of the Russian Dolls!

My name is Alex and I am a Lord of the Rings geek.  There, I said it.  It's out there.  I just can't get enough of all things Ring.  I am already  heart-thumpingly excited about The Hobbit coming out at the end of the year.  I have many odd Lord of the Rings 'things' mainly thanks to my net-surfing husband.

In my post about my owl garland, eagle-eyed Gillian spotted my Lord of the Rings russian dolls so I thought I'd give her a special treat and  show you them in glorious close up1




Aggie is getting a closer look!
Odd, yes.  Tacky, probably. But I love them in all their Ringy gloriousness!

Till next time...

Brilliant! I have to confess I am not a particular fan of Lord of the Rings, but I do love Russian Dolls. This reminds me of the Simpsons and WOrld Dictators Russian dolls I saw in a gift shop in Prague once!

I've loved The Hobbit since I was 10 years old and the story was read to us at the end of each day. I then played Gandalf in a school production, complete with stage, lighting etc - our teacher was truly amazing. I saw the trailer for The Hobbit at Christmas and I watched it open mouthed - it looks like it is going to be so good. I took the girls to see a stage production of it at The Grand Theatre in Blackpool years ago and they loved it too.
