    1. Thanks Cathy! Yes! Us too! We couldn’t believe it when we first saw them. It was a fairytale come true. It was such a unique feeling being there after seeing all the movies. Such a special place. 🤗

  1. First the good mews – your pingback appeared on my blog this week! I love the Hobbit doors, and that bird car. I also really like the corner door on the Fire & Ice market. The last photo is a very stately looking building.

    Thanks for sharing your journey with Thursday Doors!

    1. Yeah Katie, being in Hobbitton was quite the feeling! We are HUGE fans as well, I never dreamt in my wildest dreams we would ever there. The Green Dragon Inn was delcious. We had some ciders there, just like they did in the movies. Super cool experience. 🤩🙆‍♀️
