Anxiously awaiting the tooth fairy

Consider this the first of a series of posts regarding recent handmade gifts. Over the holidays, we were the grateful recipients of several—from quilts to cradles. More to come soon, but I’ll start with this special pillow my mom made for Ava. It has a little pocket on the back to hold a tooth until it can be surreptitiously replaced by a coin.

Rumor has it there’s one waiting for her little sister, too. Someone’s sure thinking ahead. Thanks, Mom!
