First, I have to tell you guys that I'm totally delighted that my giveaway already has over 20 entries, especially since I think my last one had... oh, let me count.. ONE. I know that there are bloggers who get zillions and kajillions of entries when they do a contest, but 23 is awesome to me. At this rate, I may actually break 20 followers someday.

I haven't been online much this week (um, relatively speaking. ) because I've been rereading the Harry Potter series in anticipation of the 7th movie coming out next month. I've discovered that if I reread the book RIGHT before it comes out, the movie is totally ruined for me as I pick apart little details that are changed or omitted. (But O HAI, Prisoner of Azkaban movie! Forgetting to ever mention WHO the Mauraders ACTUALLY ARE is kind of a HUGE EPIC FAIL.)

I only own the first 3 movies, but I'll probably try to rewatch them all, too. They're just, for the most part, so disappointing compared to the books! I watched the first one two nights ago and almost fell asleep. I feel so bad for the people who have only ever seen the movies and think they know the story.

In my Potter state of mind, I've been poking around on Etsy, and now I want about a million things! Here are some of the HP-related things I've fallen in love with: (My birthday is in December, feel free to hook me up!)

OWL POST - Harry Potter Inspired Vintage Locket Necklace

I like items that aren't blatant "ZOMG I AM A HP NERD!" advertisements, but subtle nods. I love this owl!

Plaid School Girl Mini Skirt

Ok, this isn't TECHNICALLY HP related, but it would make a great Ravenclaw skirt. Yeah, it has green in it, but I like it!

Golden Snitch Necklace

Flying Key Necklace

Love this, too!

yeah, that owl necklace looks gorgeous, and heck not only for a HP fan

(I never read the books, but the movies are pretty cool, looking forward to the new one)
