This is Fantastic

To make the connection to Richard Armitage, please use your imagination, and when you see what has been done, it won’t be hard.

Maddie Brindley has made a miniature of Bag End:


An explanation and more views are here, and you will be sorry if you don’t look at the wonderful detail.

Thanks to Eagle-Eyed Editor for this find!

And I realize it was done in 2010, but I’ve been immersed in so much Tolkien memorabilia, that I flat missed this wonderful work and think some of you may have as well.

Love Ya, Richard

Has Richard Armitage arrived now that he’s been parodied on Saturday Night Live? Could be, but whatever the case, this skit is brilliant. Yeah, I said brilliant. I’m using it the way the Brits use it — referring to something cool or wonderful. You Brits, feel free to school me on its connotations.

But watch this first:

It doesn’t matter if you’ve already seen it. Watch it again. It gets funnier unless you’re a Peter Jackson fan who takes himself/herself too seriously. There are a few of those around, but thankfully, they’re in the minority.

And yes, I really do love Richard Armitage even though I am a conflicted fangirl. In case you don’t know that, I have a few posts lying around to prove it. Got one coming up soon that’s a doozy. :D
