Geeky Crafting Feature: LetterThings
If you could have one magical object from the wizarding universe in real life, which would you choose? A wand? An invisibility cloak? Excellent choices, to be sure, but if you’re looking for a more practical application of magic, you can’t get much better than Molly Weasley’s incredible clock. In case you’ve forgotten (I’m sure you haven’t), this clock was bewitched to alert the user to her family’s whereabouts instead of the time.
If you’ve ever wished you could have this amazing device in your own life, look no further than Trish Mercer’s “LetterThings” Etsy shop. While her clocks may not let you know whether your family is in “mortal peril,” they will let you know when it’s time to “De-gnome Garden” or “Service Broom.” And if you happen to be a citizen of more than one fandom (who isn’t?), you’ll be happy to know that she also offers clocks themed to everything from Disney (Time to “Save China”) to Sherlock (Time to “Regard Lestrade with Withering Contempt”). There are even some awesome Harry Potter-inspired key holders and coat racks! MuggleNet had the pleasure of talking to Trish herself about her delightfully geeky products.
I don’t know about you guys, but I think a clock like this is just what I need to make my daily activities a little more exciting and fantastical. All of Trish’s products (including a “Free a House Elf: Donate Single Socks Here” unmatched sock sign that I definitely need) can be found on her Etsy page, LetterThings! Or if you’re feeling crafty enough to try your own hand at it, check out our own post on how to make a “Free Dobby!” sock sign!
