As of this writing there are a total of 67 Harry Potter LEGO® sets, all of which I have listed below. I say “as of this writing” because I will be forever hopeful that LEGO® will create new sets from the Harry Potter stories in the future, even though it...

I am a huge fan of both Dumbledore and Gandalf. They were both amazing wizards who were inspired hope in those who either knew them or knew of them, and they both come from stories so amazing that they have been loved for decades, as well as decades to come.I don’t...

I am pleased to share with you the graphic that my 14 year old daughter made for this site. I told her that I wanted a woman sitting in a book reading a Harry Potter book, and she made the following image based on what I said. I think she did a wonderful job and it...

Dobby was a house elf who is a favorite character for a lot of people. If you have only seen the movies then you may not understand why so many people love this often annoying character but Dobby in the books was a much richer character who had a bigger role to play...

The year 2000 was an interesting one in the world of Harry Potter fandom. The fourth book, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, was published but none of the movies had yet been released (that didn't happen until November of 2001). Pottermania was starting to grip the...

Spoiler alert! This post contains spoilers from the final "Harry Potter" book.Earlier today I stumbled upon what looked like a movie poster for a supposed movie called For The Greater Good. In all honesty, when I saw the poster I thought it was a really clever image...

I just came across a video that is so wonderfully done I just had to share it. The Hermione Mix video is credited to Pogo and Jeesh. The video is a compilation of scenes from several Harry Potter movies along with movie dialogue set to original music. The majority of...

My husband recently made breakfast for me that consisted of eggs and bacon. When he called me to the table to eat, this is what I found waiting for me. When I asked him what the design was supposed to be, he didn't really know. He thought about it for a moment, then...

                  Rochelle                   September 15, 2015 @ 2:08PM                   
Tonight I decided to create the Harry Potter alphabet. The hardest part about creating this alphabet was having to choose just one word for each letter. Letters like Q and X were easy because each letter has only one option, but most other letters have multiple...

When Harry Potter entered his Gryffindor dormitory room for the first time he saw five poster beds, each with deep red, velvet curtains. Harry and his roommate keep their curtains open during the day, but close them at bedtime for privacy.There are many ways you can...

                  Rochelle                   December 5, 2015 @ 11:18AM                   
To the best of my knowledge, there is no swimming pool at Hogwarts. The only places where swimming is mentioned in the books of Harry Potter are in the Prefects bathroom where Harry Potter went to ponder the mystery of his egg in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,...

There is so much to love about Hogwarts, and one of my very favorite things at the school of magic is the enchanted ceiling. The ceiling of the Great Hall in Hogwarts has been enchanted so that it looks just like the outside sky is above them. Hermione Granger...

I am willing to bet that fans of the Harry Potter books have also seen and love the movies. Yes, I know, the books are better because there is soooooo much more information in the books that never made it to the movies *cough* Winky*cough*. That aside, if you were to...

Imagine for a moment that you are a child - a child who has seen all the Harry Potter movies, and possibly even read all the books. You are a child who has fallen in love with the world of magic, witches, and wizards, and longs for an acceptance letter from Hogwarts...

Someone created a lovely reading nook by painting several Harry Potter scenes in their room. First, there is the Hogwarts crest, complete with all four house crests and the school's motto, "Draco dormiens nunquam titillandus," underneath. For those who don't already...

Ask any fan of Harry Potter how to get to the Hogwarts Express train and the answer will be, “You run straight towards and through Platform 9 and three quarters”. This is common knowledge among anyone who was taught at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and...

If you haven't already heard, author J.K. Rowling revealed a few years ago that Albus Dumbledore is gay. Not only was Dumbledore gay, but he fell in love with Gellert Grindelwald when they were teenagers. For those of you who don't know, Grindelwald grew up to become...
