Did you know what yesterday was?

Yup- the release of the new Harry Potter Book, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, based on the theatre play scripts!

And while we don't post on Sundays, I thought we should share in the glow of the Harry Potter aftermath!

Somebody was ALL set to cast her spells, thanks to the always on top Irish Dance TShirt Company!
(and Yes, that is Griffindor red, thank you very much! LOL)

And thanks to a spectacular coloring book,
 that while not names Harry Potter, never the less, calls it to mind: The Curiosity Shoppe

Welcome to the weird, wonderful world of the Curiosity Shoppe, where every drawer, shelf, and display offers a new discovery. It's unlike anything you've ever seen--let alone colored--as the pages provide an escape to a bygone era. Or maybe a trip down Diagon Alley maybe?

In The Curiosity Shoppe Coloring Book, you can explore a bric-a-brac store and bring life to its many oddities through your color choices and combinations. This is the perfect book to not only celebrate Harry Potter, but to get ready for National Coloring Day, which is TOMORROW (just wait til you see what ALL we have to share with you!)

There really is a reason why the book is subtitled: 

A Magical and Mad Exploration of a Most Amusing and 

Unexpected Assemblage of Novelties and Oddities.

For that is exactly what it is!

Miss Grace and I had fun going page by page and finding little oddities to point out and ooh over! The drawings are spectacular as you can see, and this is the perfect book for those looking to up the adult coloring book game! You may find yourself wanting to frame quite a few of the pieces in this book too!

The book opens like a calendar, making it different from all the other coloring books out there, and it is on parchment colored paper, lending the scenes a more old timey/different world look too! As you can see above, they take ink and pencil equally well. Miss Grace has started on one with water color and it is holding up pretty well to it as, thanks to the thicker paper.

We love this coloring book and can't recommend it enough!
