Bookish Charms, Mischief Managed Cookies and The Giveaway That Kept On Giving....

We are HUGE Harry Potter fans in our house.


Have I not mentioned that before...?

Want to know how much we love Harry Potter?

This much....

Look at the munchkin!!!!

We enjoy the movies, but I'm partial to the books myself.

Ever since I was the munchkin's size, 
bookstores and libraries have been my happy place.

Now that I'm older, 
I've added the blogosphere to my happy place list.

Where else can you find people that write about cookies and crafts and books....

and even make cookies and crafts about books!

So...around the time I made those Hunger Games Cookies...

I found the blog Rae Gun Ramblings.

Marissa writes about books and crafts and cooking...all kinds of fun things.

(She also has a darling etsy shop filled with the cutest munchkinwear)

One day, Marissa was hosting a giveaway by Bookish Charms.

(I know this is getting confusing but I'm getting to the good part, I promise!)

Entering the giveaway was done in the usual way...

"click over to Bookish Charms and leave a comment stating
which charm you would choose!"

So I clicked....

.....and fell down a rabbit hole.

Erin (she's on facebook too) makes handcrafted jewelry for the bookish.


The best quotes from our favorite escapes....
...Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland, Austen, Alcott, Shakespeare....

But I instantly knew which one I would pick if I won....

and I did!

I was so excited when it arrived!

I opened it up right away!

Oh!  I hoped the necklace was just as perfect!!!!

It was!!!!!   Yipee!!!

Wait a minute.


Now really.....

 was just screaming at me......

It HAD to be a cookie.....immediately.

A match made in heaven.

(Thanks Erin for letting me use your design!!!!)

If you are a Harry Potter fan, come back all this week.... didn't think I would stop at just one Harry Potter cookie, did you?

(I solemnly swear that I am up to no good........)

Thanks for stopping by,

Lizy B


  1. I love, love it! I'm a huge Harry Potter geek myself, but I might have a hard time eating this since it's so pretty!
    Congrats on the win, and I love the saying you chose!!!
    I really don't like plugging my blog in a comment on someone else's, but I think you're as big a fan as me so you might enjoy my Harry Potter Script Wall post.
    Check it out if you feel so inclined.
    Nice work!!
