Tooth Fairy Winner!

Congratulations to Beetle, random number 11! "When I was travelling in France, I learned that instead of a 'tooth fairy', they have a small mouse who comes to visit when a child loses a tooth..."

How sweet is that? A mouse!? I checked out the children's book "Throw Your Tooth on the Roof" and learned about many different traditions following a lost tooth. Many traditions included a mouse, but some more unique ones include feeding it to your chickens or throwing it into the ocean. I loved all of your comments and suggestions -from handwritten notes or special glitter coins from the tooth fairy herself. And to encourage good brushing I tell my children that "the tooth fairy can only take clean teeth".

I want to leave you with a photo of a felted mouse created by Barby Anderson, so soft and sweet, I have fallen in love with these. Take some time to visit her flickr stream, I think you may be there a while. And thanks again to those who participated in the tooth fairy pocket giveaway -you are appreciated!


  1. Yay! Thanks for picking me as the lucky winner. Your tooth fairy pillows are such a great concept. I love the idea of sprinkling a little trail of fairy dust, too. I'll have to check out the children's book you recommended. Wishing happy days to you and all your readers.

  2. In Panama it's a mouse too LOL that's so funny. I felt we were the only weird ones with no tooth fairy hahahaha.


  3. Beetle- my son just lost his first tooth the trail of fairy dust was a huge hit! He woke us all up at 5:30am to tell us about it!

    Mayi- do you know what the mouse does with your teeth? And what does he leave? Coins, candy?

  4. In my house the mouse left money under the pillow. For my first tooth, which I lost in the snow in Michigan and I had to write a letter saying I lost it, he only left me a dollar, but for the moles he left like $5 hehehe. I think the tooth business was going well because he got more splendid as time passed.

    I will ask my parents for more background info on the mouse and I'll report soon.

  5. Hi, Renae! Thanks for visiting my blog. I checked out some books on felt today. Oh my, what people are creating, like that adorable mouse above! I did buy some floss and want to try out some embroidery on the felt. I meant to leave a link on my blog to your etsy shop for the felt. I will go back and do that. :-)

    I hope you have a great weekend.


  6. Honeybee -thanks for the link! Keep having fun with your felt!
