Midnight Visitor

The tooth fairy came to our house again last week.
The preparation of appropriate tooth is a ritual I adore.
My own fairy made a tiny origami envelope to place the tooth into.
She made a larger envelope with a letter.
A little copper pot big enough to hold a coin was prepared with
wool scraps, so the fairy would not make a noise when said coin
was dropped in.
I convinced her to place all the above on her dresser
next to her bed, instead of under her pillow.
I had visions of the tooth fairy trying desperately to locate
all the items in silence, in the dark, without prodding
sleeping toothless child.
Apples are currently being cut up for consumption.

Hope you're all having a lovely week out there.

Carmel that is a warm-fuzzy tale. I think you should keep that little origami envelope. It's a great keepsake memento of childhood. I was thinking you could turn those crochet flowers into a Xmas stocking, a fun vintage type version! x

What those tooth fairies have to do sometimes...even when they forget to leave the money. Did that a few times! Happy memories!
