Last week I went to see The Hobbit at the cinema. It was so lovely to be back in that world and to be in Rivendell once more as the Elves are my favorite characters from Middle Earth. I wish the film had lingered in Rivendell a lot longer - I would have been happy to stay for a while and put off the Adventure!
Ever since my picture appeared in Spirit&Destiny magazine I have received countless emails asking me about the chalice I am holding in the photo. It wasn't prop; everything in that photo belongs to me, even the book style coffee table and candles.
The chalice I am holding in the photo is Galadriel, one of the Lord of the Rings Goblet Collection. Unfortunately these are no longer being produced so I feel really fortunate that I was able to begin my collection many years ago. There are one or two I wish I had managed to purchase before they were discontinued, but I do have all the Elves that were produced so I am really pleased about that, as they are now quite expensive to buy and very difficult to find.
I have nine Goblets altogether, but I accidentally left one out (the Elvin Goblet) when I took these pictures.
Here is my collection;
|My Goblet Collection from left; Celeborn, Galadriel, Gandalf and Treebeard.|
|Again from left; City of Tirion, Glorfindel, Arwen and Legolas.|
I love them all and I do feel very lucky to have them. My favorite ones from the collection are Galadriel, Arwen and Legolas...and yes, I do use them. They add a touch of Elvin enchantment to my home and remind me of the gentle harmony of Rivendell.
I wish I lived in Rivendell .
