• Tell Your Friends

With early registration open for Pottermore this week, I had to feature this mysterious wooden object. I’ll give you a hint: It doesn’t unleash superpowers, and I’d say it’s perfectly fitting for the Harry Potter wedding inspiration board from Karli’s Pottermore design post.

What the...?

Put on your sorting hat for this one, and tell us your best guess in the comment area below.

    Looks like perfume bottles as I have them like this in glass and metal, but not wood.

    The one on the left looks just like a dip (nib) pen I have. It's like a metallic quill or fountain pen. The leather chord is a bit curious though…
