Tooth fairy trinkets

Gosh I am flabbergasted, what a start to my blog. 8 followers already and so many charming comments. Well it brings a smile to the face of this Fairy Godmother that there are so many believers. I just know that we are going to have fun together, for I have so many stories to tell you - I barely know where to start.

In fact, I still can't begin... You see I promised someone a small favour. No sooner had I hit publish on my first post yesterday than the world of mythical creatures came alive and began to bombard me with helpful(?) advice and requests to write about them (they are such a vain lot).

The most vociferous of which was Wistle, a tooth fairy. She can talk the hind legs off a unicorn that one and I was forced to give in just for a moment's peace. She has a request to make of her little human friends on behalf of herself and her many thousands of hard-worked colleagues (she made me add that last bit in!).

You see, every night they fly hundreds of miles, often in the foulest of weather to carry their tiny teeth treasures back to their workshop. They finally arrive at each destination and creep into slumbering bedrooms weighed down by coins at least ten times their bodyweight. Exhausted they sigh with relief that they have at last reached their destination, but can they relax? Why no dear Readers no. Next they have to search for said tooth under a pillow weighed down by a sleepy head. Imagine - a tiny piece of enamel under a soft mountain of polyester (they prefer feathers for future reference - although the Eider Duck will remain eternally grateful for that particular invention).

"Why, oh why?" she asks plaintively, must children hide their teeth so? Such treasure should be kept in the manner to which it has become accustomed. She has presented me with this box within which she entreats you to place your fallen tooth. It will be much easier to find she insists - especially if placed on a bedside table.

Before she left she whispered to me that a great event was happening in Bloglandia - a sharing of gifts, an opening of hearts and creativity. She asked that I might present this tooth fairy box to a lucky winner. Who am I to say no to such a request.

All you have to do is leave Wistle or me a message right here and on Feb 18th we'll wave our magic wands and conjure up a lucky winner. You can see all the other magical people who are entering here. Oh yes, there'll be something to put the box in too - for it is very tiny. It's a Fairy Godmother bag - standard issue, but nonetheless really quite smart. Strictly speaking I'm not supposed to give them out to mere mortals, but I won't tell if you don't!

Now I've done my duty by the tooth fairy population, perhaps I might be allowed to get on with my own stories...

    I love the tooth case- so sweet and practical!

    If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll drop by both of my giveaways (at Twigs and Tulle and Kindergarten’s 3 R’s: I’m giving away a mini bunting and some pattern blocks) during this awesome blogging event! Happy OWOH!

  12. Hello Wistle,

  17. What an adorable Tooth Fairy Bos! The entire design is great, and to think it comes in it's very own little bag. Love your creativity. Hope you have oodles of fun during OWOH. I've enjoyed it so much over the years seeing all of the wonderful blogs and meeting everyone. Thanks for your participation in the event.

  20. Hi there, hope you are enjoying the ride. Please call on me at #100 if you have a chance.

  21. I LOVE all things mystical and magical and it's just the greatest pleasure to meet you Fairy God mother. Adore your story...I have one too about a toothfaery (one of the collectors) and a frog named Ruppert. Hope you will come and visit my whimsical world #104 Southern Ooaks.


  22. Dearest Fairy Godmother and Wistle... Oh my goodness. I am so glad I found you. What is a girl to do out here in Bloglandia without her Fairy Godmother. I mean...why should Cinderella get all the goods. I have found my prince charming...well 5 of them to be exact, and Happily Ever After is a work in progress, so I am satisfied with Crazy Mad Ever After...I seem to like it that way better anyway, but I could use a new lovely little box to put my little hatter's teeth in. We are constantly loosing them around here. :-) It is wonderful to meet you and your enchanted blog, and please do stop by and visit me during your journey.
    wishes and whimsy

  23. I am so glad you finally gave in to the technological wave, can you imagine if you had GPS a few hundred years ago? Happy OWOH! (PS: I never stopped believing!)

  24. Oh! I have a 7 year old who has wiggly teeth willy-nilly and is about to lose one (or two or three) any day now! I also have a 7 month old who should be cutting his first tooth any day now (poor little dear, so weepy whine-y...) Both my boys could use a little tooth-fairy love!

    Thank you fairy godmother for offering an opportunity to win such a treat on behalf of Wistle the tooth-fairy!

    Love from,
    Fairy Mama Bloom
