|Hobbiton, The Shire|
My favorite Middle Earth dwelling is definitely Hobbiton! I'm am country girl through and through, and Hobbiton, the Shire and Bag-End would definitely be dream home. I just loved the peaceful, tranquility that Hobbiton had and even though it was small and out of the way, it was the primary reason that caused Frodo to carry the Ring in the first place. When I saw LOTR for the first time, I just fell in love with the Shire and its immense beauty. The color is what astounded me the most; the incredible green contrasting with the bright colors of the flowers and the very clear water under the bridge.
And now we get to Bag End! I LOVE Bag End! It would definitely be my dream home. My roomed is actually inspired by Bag End. I have paintings all over the walls, one bookshelf overflowing with books (the other with DVDs), candles everywhere on my dressers and shelves, and my own desk that's always covered with papers, as well as little nick-knacks that are just scattered though-out the room. I can definitely understand why Bilbo was so desperate to return home and why he was incensed that he saw everything being sold off when he returned.
