Tooth Fairy Wishes and Keepsake Pillows

In this tiny pocket you will find
A teensy, tiny tooth of mine.
So while I sleep where dreams are made,
Let's see if you can make a trade.
In this pocket I will lay,
the little tooth I lost today.
Please, dear fairy,
tonight as I sleep
leave me a coin.
My tooth you can keep.
-Author Unknown

This special little pillow is about 32 years old and was
passed from my hubby to our little boys.



Princess-Mermaid-Fifi-Cupcake-Twinkie-Dolly-Sushi (Sophia) made this tooth fairy pillow with her Grandmother while visiting for the weekend. She isn't losing any teeth yet, but when she does, she wanted a pink one, of course!

How sweet! My kids put their's in a bowl by the tv in the livingroom, because I couldn't find it under their pillow in the dark without waking them up. Later I saw a doorhanger pillow and thought that was a great idea! What darling tooth pillows, real treasures.

What cute tooth pillows. When I was a kid we wrapped our tooth in a kleenex and put it under our pillow.

I smiled when I saw this. Our daughter always left her tooth in the kitchen--said she didn't want strangers in her room (even if they were a fairy bearing money :)

Those are precious little keepsakes--especially the 32 year-old one! I noticed folding money; I guess the tooth fairy is doing okay during these tough economic times! Thanks for sharing. Happy Show and Tell Friday!
