"Pongáio" was the name my Aunt Mona gave to a long, green, cool room where we gathered at her home —
replete with comfy chairs, a rocker, sewing machine, sewing goods, beautiful beads, shelves, books, bibelots, photographs, odds'n'ends, mementos of a life, treasures —
a gathering of all the useful & 'useless' things that so make life a pleasure.

Of Hobbits

Don't you just love this window?

I came across these today of "Hobbiton", the film set in Matamata, NZ being rebuilt.
There are tours during this rebuilding, up to the actual filming that should be starting at the end of this year.
If a Tolkien fan and in that part of the world, it would certainly be interesting to visit.

Bag End and neighbor

Hobbiton coming back...
this part of the set had burned down at the end of filming

Can I go in, please?
