A-Z 2014 Challenge D is for Dientes

The Tooth Fairy's Stash  April 4, 2014

Los dientes de la sabiduría = Wisdom Teeth  
I came across this little tin of treasures
the other day ~ packed away in a box
that I hadn't opened in decades.
Besides my children's baby teeth here
are my youngest son's wisdom teeth
 removed when he had to have braces.
In addition there are matches from a friends
 1975 wedding, our beloved Fred's
obituary from 1978, a compass, my high
school graduation watch, dice from
dungeons and dragons and other 
"treasures" from long ago. 
After taking this photo I carefully 
placed the tin back in the box and 
put it back up on the closet shelf.
Somethings are best left to rest.
The A-Z Challenge requires that we
post a blog each day in April except
for Sundays for each letter of the 
alphabet. Today the letter is D.
Here's the link to other bloggers:

Someones needs to cash in those teeth to the tooth fairy. That's a small fortune right there! :)

How interesting that today we both published posts about containers for precious objects. They say great minds think alike... I have no idea who THEY are.

It's so fun finding stuff that we've saved like that! I think I still have some of my baby teeth somewhere. :)
