HP & Sandra Pelzel "Tooth Fairy Box" at the Joyful Jewel 6-25-14

"Tooth Fairy Box"
HP Pelzel & Sandra Boyd Pelzel
Ceramic Box with Lid and Pillow, 2 1/2" x 4 1/2"

What stories this little box by the Pelzels could tell!  A "Tooth Fairy Box" dressed in festive red and green with a just-right fitting lid, awaits first a fallen tooth lain with care on the tiny pillow inside, with lid replaced just so.  Next, after trying his best to stay awake, just as the child drifts off to sleep, a gossamer-winged fairy comes to collect her due.  The quick darting fairy replaces the tooth with a crisp dollar bill and a thank you note.  What joy the next morning when while still groggy, the child opens the box.  Mom moves the Tooth Fairy box to a shelf to await another tooth's fall.  Mom doesn't know that her boy, finding it hard to wait for the tooth, climbs a chair to check the box each morning just in case the fairy decided to bring an extra delivery . . .
