Let’s Talk LOTR is a weekly series of posts, sparked by my obsession with all things Middle Earth. It’s also my way of dealing with the wait (for The Hobbit, of course). Anything Tolkien-related is fair game. Come join the fun and geekery every Sunday (or, you know, the Sundays I actually get around to typing something up)!
It’s been ages and ages since my last Let’s Talk LOTR post, and I know you guys miss it, right? Right?!
Ok, even if you didn’t, you simply have to love this one. Because it’s…
Ok, a little backstory on Peanut Frodo here. First, we need to talk about beauty bloggers. They are an awesome bunch of individuals who will gush over the latest summer collections with you and geek out about LOTR, all in the same sentence. As I was having a very compelling LOTR discussion with Tracy of Beauty Reflections one day, she showed me this. I think my heart stopped beating for a second there when I saw Peanut Frodo. Never before have I felt more connected to an inanimate object. Except maybe that one time when I first beheld Ellis Red, which was also a significant moment.
Anyways, where were we? Oh, right. Een though I went ahead an fell in love with Peanut Frodo at first sight, I had to question the wisdom of paying $6 + shipping for a peanut and some felt. Sure, I have my crazy moments and impulse buys, but this was pushing it, even for me.
That was a dark time in my life.
And then, Tracy, beacon of awesomeness that she is, made one for me. So if everyone could please applaud Tracy behind their computer screens…
The lifelike smile! The ring! The felt leaf! I could go on for days, but basically this incarnation of Frodo gets an A+
Thanks Tracy! I’m wondering if I should put him in my blog banner now…
See you next week for more Middle-Earth craziness,
