the tooth fairy {and a 1 day sale}

February 2nd | jewelry, matthias



matthias lost his first tooth yesterday.

further proof that he is growing up (despite our instructions that he stay small forever).

he was so, so excited.

and the tooth fairy brought him 1 dollar bill, 2 quarters, 3 dimes, 2 nickels and a penny.

so he feels totally rich and proceeded to inform every stranger that he had

‘money his pocket’.

that $1.91 is definitely burning a hole.  how soon can we get to a target??




i took the picture on the left through my rainy windshield with my heart filter.

and the books on the right were thrift store find.  love the titles and the darling illustrations.




until wednesday at midnight our forever heart is on sale.

for one day only, instead of $75, it’s only $59!!

and this piece was pictured in in-style magazine this month. so exciting!

you’ll find the forever heart here.

have a great day!  i’m on my way to blissdom.

follow me through blissdom while i tweet about blogging tips and fun moments!

    I’m so excited for Matty… losing that first tooth is such a milestone (for the child and the parents!) I’m also so happy for you, Lisa, to have one of your creations featured in In Style! You’re so deserving.

    As I was admiring the beautiful image of the rain seen through the filter of a heart, I couldn’t help but wonder how different the world might look if always viewed through the filters of our own hearts…

    Wow! It must be inflation at work! When you lost a tooth, you got one quarter, one dime, one nickel and one penny. Nice to see the tradition being carried forward.
    Love, Mom (and Grandma)

    Wow…you found the Stillmeadow book…I love that book….Susan Branch uses quotes from it in her cookbooks.

    It has gone in and out of print for years.

    Aaaww! Such sweet images of Matthias. And too cute about the $1.91 burning a hole in his pocket. (I’m decades older than that sweet little guy, but I *still* have that problem with money. ha ha!)

    I’m loving the heart filter! ingenious!!

    P.S. Best of wishes with David’s mass. Poor guy – he’ll feel so much better when they are able to remove it. (Aren’t kids just the most resilient of us all?! hugs to all of you!)
