Happy Hobbit Day!!!

Well I had to pacify the nerdy side of me and mention that today is the birthday of both Frodo and Bilbo from "The Lord of the Rings"

This event was what began the books, Bilbo's 111 and Frodo's Coming of age at 33.

Among us "Ringers" This day is known as "Hobbit day" A day to put on the pointed ears and furry feet and celebrate all things "Middle earth"

Ehem unfortunately I forgot until this very moment that it was in fact September 22... Though I did go in to town today. My Aunt had my pattern and I had her order a vest pattern for me to use to complete my Anne of Green Gables outfit.

I then went to a little Odd shop called "The Common Good" Which is in a little town house and has all sorts of Vintage and Victorian items. Unfortunately nothing reached out and grabbed me today. Last time I was there I bought a hat. (Which I wish I could take a picture but I don't have a camera...)

Also once I got home I found out my aunt had bought the 1910 tea dress instead of the 1914 afternoon dress. sooo, on that front I'm delayed for a while... But it'll give me a chance to finish my nighty. :D (Which once again I wish I could take a picture of)

Well anyways I hope you all have a blessed Hobbit Day!
God Bless!

My dear Bagginses and Boffins, Tooks and Brandybucks, Grubbs, Chubbs, Hornblowers, Bolgers, Bracegirdles and Proudfoots. Today is my 111th birthday! Alas, eleventy-one years is far too short a time to live among such excellent and admirable hobbits. I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve. I, uh, I h-have things to do. I regret to announce this is the end. I am going now. I bid you all a very fond farewell. Goodbye.
