Look who has parachuted in:
Yes, that’s right. Thorin’s in da house! He has officially landed in Casa Guylty. He arrived on Friday morning, courtesy of fellow fan Esther. The lovely woman not only sent me a generous contribution to the postage fund for further badge bombs, but she enclosed this wonderful gift for me.
Officially he’s supposed to be a Hallmark Christmas ornament. But hey, Christmas is still two months away, and Guylty couldn’t wait to add some majesticity to her domestic set-up. So I got creative.
The branches on the chimney breast had displayed Helen’s beautiful glass raindrops until now. But with rain drops a regular feature outside the house at this time of year, it was time to take them down. Esther’s gift gave me the
kick up the arse impetus to finally install the odd assortment of old keys from the house that nobody knows what treasure chests they may unlock.
I think they go very well together with Thorin, holder of the key to Erebor… The ancestors approve…
Thank you, Esther, for your lovely gift. I am finding all sorts of reasons to be in my drawing room at the moment… Just can’t take my eyes off Thorin.
PS: There are lots of distRActed badges left, if anyone still needs one, pop me an e-mail…
