'Nine companions...So be it. You shall be the Fellowship of the Ring.'

'Great! Where are we going?'


Last night I decided, apropos of nothing, to reread LOTR. I'm just about to leave the Shire with Frodo, Sam and Pippin. Wish us luck! 🤞

'Pines occurred widely in the Middle-earth of the Third Age, growing mainly in mountainous areas, especially in the Misty and White Mountains, the Western slopes of the Mountains of Shadow, in Northern Ithilien, and on the Lonely Mountain. They had also been common in Beleriand and were especially characteristic of the Highlands of Dorthonion and the mountains surrounding Hithlum. It is not surprising, therefore, that they are mentioned more times in J. R. R. Tolkien's writings than any other species of tree.' - Flora of Middle-Earth 🌲

I'm going to spend the weekend reading a dense academic work on the plant life of a fictitious world. You?

'Where am I, and what is the time?' he said aloud to the ceiling.


'In the House of Elrond, and it is ten o'clock in the morning,' said a voice. 'It is the morning of October the twenty-fourth, if you want to know.'

One more close-up of the print I posted yeterday, because look at the wee Fellowship leaving Rivendell!

Go not to the Elves for counsel, for they will say both no and yes 🌧🌿

If you've taken a gander at my stories today, then you'll know that a certain special package from @nancymeansgrace has arrived in my neck of the Shire, containing several of her beautifully drawn and lettered prints! One of which is soon to be the property of the lucky winner of my upcoming giveaway, in honour of @thatwhichtheydefend's first thousand followers! 🎉🎉🎉

The stunning print above, covered in perfectly lettered Elven quotes, is not going in the giveaway, because I'm selfish; it's getting framed and going on my wall 😂 Head to my stories (also highlighted on my profile) to see the the giveaway print!

Shouldn't be too much longer until the giveaway, so keep a sharp lookout #thebeaconsarelit

Favourite LOTR funko? I think for me it might always be this terrifying little wraith 🗡 How about you? (Or favourite funko in general, if you don't have any LOTR ones)

“Let this be the hour when we draw swords together. Fell deeds awake. Now for wrath, now for ruin, and the red dawn. Forth, Eorlingas!”🗡🐎

A few little updates for you this #fellowshipfriday. Firstly this amazing candle, Shieldmaiden of Rohan, has arrived from @midnightflamecandles. It smells heavenly, of 'cedar wood, Jasmine and meadows', and the top is sprinkled with flower petals! It couldn't be more perfect (a couple more pictures are in my stories).

Secondly, it's just possible that you might see something from @midnightflamecandles feature in my upcoming giveaway, which is rapidly coming together #notlongnow!

Thirdly, see that little card with a map of Rohan on it? It was drawn by my mum! I might have to commission her to do a few other Middle-earth regions as well.

Fourthly and finally, I'm on a bit of a Rohan kick atm, as you'll see if you check out what I've posted today over at @tolkientribe 🐎

Isil was first wrought and made ready, and first rose into the realm of the stars, and was the elder of the new lights, as was Telperion of the trees. Then for a while the world had moonlight, and many things stirred and woke that had waited long in the sleep of Yavanna. 🌕

It's not surprising that the invention of the moon in Middle-earth woke a bunch of people up. Last night's super moon was so bright I had trouble getting to sleep!

'Let him go, you filth.' 🗡


I've been wandering outside in the real world this morning, so I took Sam along with me in case of spiders. And look! Snowdrops! #spring

I've taken over @tolkientribe today, so be sure to head over and see what's afoot!

This was one of the first photos I took when I got my new camera. I never posted it, and I've no idea why, because just look at these editions, y'all. They're so aesthetically on point, it almost makes me want to burn them to ashes because this wretched world isn't worthy of their beauty 🔥. Those muted Middle-Earthian tones! 👌 (Because people always ask, this is the Houghton Mifflin deluxe pocket box set).

In other news, a giveaway is most definitely in the works, so watch this space 🎁

I want to say an enormous thank you to you all for following me, as yesterday @thatwhichtheydefend passed 1000 followers! 🎉 1000 is enough people to storm somewhere smallish, wouldn't you say? Isengard, perhaps?

If I were to put together a small giveaway in honour of the occasion, would people be interested in that? I'm guessing it'd probably include a pin, a book and maybe something else as well (all Tolkien related of course). Thoughts?

📣New books!📚 I found these beautiful hardback George Allen and Unwin editions of LOTR on Etsy last week, and knew I had to have them. I had to showcase their amazing spines, but there are more shots of the covers in my stories.

Do you have a personal favourite LOTR edition???

Morning! 🍳☕🥐

Actually it's almost afternoon here, but never mind. Must dash, I'm an hour late for elevensies.

Farewell sweet earth and northern sky, for ever blest, since here did lie and here with lissom limbs did run beneath the Moon, beneath the Sun, Lúthien, Tinúviel more fair than mortal tongue can tell. Though all to ruin fell the world and were dissolved and backward hurled unmade into the old abyss, yet were its making good, for this--- the dusk, the dawn, the earth, the sea--- That Lúthien for a time should be.

'I will tell you the tale of Tinúviel,’ said Strider, ‘in brief—for it is a long tale of which the end is not known; and there are none now, except Elrond, that remember it aright as it was told of old. It is a fair tale, though it is sad, as are all the tales of Middle-earth, and yet it may lift up your hearts.’

My winter berries are getting shrivelled, so I thought I'd take one last photo with them before throwing them out. It's still very dark in the mornings and evenings here - I love the winter, but I must admit, I'm looking forward to having more light to take photos with!
