Elevenses: Harry Potter & The Gryffindors

When it comes to Potterheads, July is the most wonderful time of the year. It’s Harry Potter Month, and what a Harry Potter Month it is! We haven’t felt excitement like this since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows came out in July 2007. There is a new Harry Potter book (okay, script) on the way and this November we’ll finally get another cinematic trip into the wizarding world.

In honor of this magical time, we’re partaking in the #PotterMonth linkup hosted by SuperSpaceChick and The Nerdy Girlie. We will feature fun Harry Potter content throughout the month of July and that includes four special Elevenses posts that are curated specifically for each of the Hogwarts houses.

First up: Gryffindor!

Please keep in mind that none of us are actually Gryffindors a more accurate title for this post is ‘Gryffindor Content as Curated by some Ravenclaws and a Slytherpuff’.

Every Potterhead would be lying if they said they didn’t want a House-themed scarf, well now you can make your own! Sure the pattern is for kids, but surely a cleaver person such as yourself can adjust the pattern.
