Flying Golden Ball with Silver Wings

So…I’m a Harry Potter fan. A Hufflepuff, to be precise, and since that house tends to be rather under-represented when it comes to fan goods, I’ve gotten in the habit of crafting my own.

Hence, the Golden Snitch I made today when I decided my tree was rather Quidditch-less.
I make no claim to own the copyright to any of this, and I hope if Ms. Rowling ever sees it, she accepts the Flying Golden Ball with Silver Wings in the spirit it was intended…that of sincere appreciation for the amazing universe she created.
