Harry Potter and the Elf at the Post Office

at the post office
there he was
a unique individual
minding his own
as though he lived
in a world all his own

an elf!

I just had to sketch him!

I Won!!!

Look at how beautifully the package arrived! (above)

Erin made a fabulous wonderful magical 
Harry Potter!

(the colors of this photograph does not do him justice)

still, he is so adorable! 
he is leaning up against my magic ink pen journal

some how, i feel that
 Harry Potter, movies and books

have shown us that the people of our world love magic

how wonderful
because i feel that magic is swirled into each breath
if we allow it 


adendum: i have not read the Harry Potter Books
but have enjoyed the movies!

    What a treat to see an elf out & about running errands - I love it when that happens...& huge congratulations on winning Harry Potter, he is just darling!!

    ps, I have only seen the movies too ;-)

  19. Your elf....I love your elf!

    When my youngest son was young we tried reading the Harry Potter books together, but only made it through two. But we did love to read of a good game of Quidditch!

  20. Oh dear Tammie, today is my birthday and today your absolutely beautiful card arrived. I find nothing more special and uplifting than a surprise hand written card/letter arriving in the post. Your artwork is so special, and the card you chose to send me just perfect, so me! Especially with the whale's tail... I've been dreaming often about whales lately!
    Thank you Tammie, that meant so much to me, it really did.
    Much love to you beautiful lady.

  21. p.s I love the elf you have drawn here...
    and the envelope you posted the card in was so great! My girls loved it too.

  22. lucky you....your win is gorgeous! an early Christmas gift.....

Lovely of you to drop by! I love hearing from you~
