Platform 9 3/4

This has been waiting to be finished for AGES. Since before I visited the real platform 9 3/4!

When I visited the actual platform at Kings Cross station it was absolute madness. I didn't even line up for the photo op because it was swarming with people. (Don't feel badly for me. It gives me a great excuse to return!)

My little version of Platform 9 3/4 was built inside of a wooden shadow box. It measures approximately 6" x 9" x 1.5"

I'm so happy with the brickwork in this piece as well as that pipe to the side.

All of the suitcases are made from cardstock with ribbon and other wee bits.

There's a little Hogwarts Express ticket, and a few books atop the stack of cases.
