All That is Gold Does Not Glitter, Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

As you've probably picked up over the lifespan of Kindof Maybe, I'm a big fan of the Lord of the Rings movies.  I was a little underwhelmed by the first installment of The Hobbit, but maybe they'll get better as they go on.  You may remember the dress I painted the map of Middle Earth onto, and to this day it remains the most complimented piece of clothing I own.

Many times I've thought about producing more to sell on Etsy (a thought that still might come to fruition in the near-ish future).  But then I thought, I should probably read the books to have full knowledge and understanding of the story, and to complete my total geek-out.  As people always say, the book is better than the movie.  Last time I was in St. Louis, I hunted around in the Hunt Family book collection and found all four installments, vintage, from the 60's.  The cover art is incredible.

  1. This might be crazy random, but I would buy that dress in a HEARTBEAT.. please replicate!! Also, hope you got through the books, they are incredible!

  2. Thanks! I'm hoping to start making some in the next few months. I'm about halfway through Two Towers and you're right, they are incredible!
