More Home Decor Straight from Middle-Earth

"...though there was still some store of weapons in the Shire, these were used mostly as trophies, hanging above hearths or on walls, or gathered into the museum at Michel Delving.  The Mathom-house it was called; for anything that Hobbits had no immediate use for, but were unwilling to throw away, they caled a mathom."
--Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

I have found many things worth hanging above the hearth and on walls at the Mithril and Mathoms Etsy shop (formerly known as the tiedyejedi Etsy shop).  You might remember Mithril and Mathom's colorful, ironic, and, as always, exquisite Middle-Earth themed accoutrements from this post in April last year.

Well, the owner of Mithril and Mathoms is at it again with a completely redrawn Elvish Map of Middle-Earth.  If you are looking to impress your fellow mathom-collectors out there, you might need to have this particular map, since all the place names have been drawn in Tengwar - the Elvish script.  The best part is you can request that the owner of the shop alter the colors of the text, geographical landmarks, and/or background.  Eeek!

Check out mithrilandmathoms.com for other "mathoms" worth having such as necklaces based on the Elvish mapadorable posters for your kitchen detailing a Hobbit's love for food, and a Gollum parody of the familiar Precious Moments collectibles!
