I think it must be dental health month, because our Scholastic books arrived today and one of them was about the tooth fairy. Plus there were big paper cut out teeth on the preschool tables this morning. So what better time to show you these giant felt teeth pillows. They’re handmade by vetrinagirl, a “30 […]
