The fairy tale like hobbit homes in Hobbiton make you want to buy a block of land on a hill and start digging.
Matmata, New Zealand. March 2014.

What? Greeting Mondays with gratitude and memories of dreams come true.

How? Sharing a favourite 2014 holiday photo every Monday in 2015. 

Why? Cos I don’t like Mondays so I’m going to fight them with sweet moments.

That’s it, my next house is going to have a curved grass roof, round windows and a round front door! I just love the way the cute little Hobbit homes are tucked underground and have soft lines. They sit naturally, gently and lightly on (in?) the earth. No harsh lines or ugly structures in Hobbiton. The Matamata country is so picturesque with it’s rolling hills and deep valleys and the filming for The Lord of the Ring and The Hobbit movies were done from an aspect where there were no buildings, power lines or man made structures in sight. Just the beauty Mother Nature gives us in all her pure glory. I loved this little touristy stop on our NZ roadtrip, and it’s really ignited my love for buildings made out of rustic natural materials… I think mine will have a blue door though.
