In episode 108, I talked about how my burglar travelled with some very exceptionally Dum people into Goblin Town. We hunted down some Trolls as they told me that Trolls drop housing items. We were not lucky enough to get a housing item to drop on our trip.
I head to the mailbox this morning and there was a fresh troll head, wrapped with a bow. A present from my friend Bryandt, who is excellent at capturing dead things (hey – everyone has a skill, right?).
Wonderful! I now have the perfect décor piece to turn my Hobbit Hole into a truly homey house. I had read in Mertha Stewit’s magazine that Troll Heads are the thing to accentuate your décor this fall!
First things first, I ran to Bree to have the head stuffed before it began to rot. Rotting Troll Heads are not so hot this season. The taxidermist did his work quickly and I was off to my Hobbit hole.
Now I wasn’t sure where exactly the best place to put a giant stuffed Troll Head but I settled on the bedroom. Of all the places in the house, it’s one of the top ones you want to feel comfortable and stylish.
I hung up my new trophy to see how it looks.
Er. Um. Very life like. Kind of angry.
But this is in all the well to do Hobbit houses and darn it mine won’t be the exception! Besides my green wall paper really puts a glow into his… teeth.
So for all you style conscious folk of Middle-earth I suggest you head out and get a Troll Head of your own. You may want to get two or three because they are definitely all the rage this autumn.
And I think it may even help you have sweet dreams!
Thank you Bryandt!
