Open wide...


it's time to look at teeth!

I know that they are probably not the first thing that springs to mind when shopping for items for your home but upon closer "examination" I think I have found some interesting tooth - related pieces that could possibly find their way into your living space.

There are some great vintage dental pieces -

Clockwise from the top left: Articulated dental light available from Kirk Albert Vintage Furnishings, vintage dentist's stool via The New Victorian Ruralist, 1920 vintage Schobert's dental label by Helen La Ruse, vintage aluminium medical clipboards, antique dental mirrors, vintage dental cabinet - image via thevintagelaundress

and some teeth that are bright and contemporary -

Top row:  "Toothypeg" stool available from Matt Blatt, "floss" aluminium sign from gaugenyc

Bottom row: "Square Teeth" screenprint on red available from aliciasartifactory , Dada Dental Cabinet via Study and " The Letter 'T' ''neon sign -image by sandydyasphotography

There are teeth to suit those who are a little more fond of things geeky and freaky -

Left hand row: Itybitybags "Monsieur Molar", "The Tooth Will Set You Free" tshirt via Yabo, tooth monster plushies from coucousalut and minty fresh "Chompers"soap available from AubreyEApothecary - what a cool way to freak out your guests!

In the middle: "He Said He Liked Sweets" by PaperThinSaga (very cool shop) and "I Could Eat Your Teeth" print by nearmoderndisaster - I love this!

On the right: "Brusha" giclee' print via kellyportfolio and emmaklingbeil's "Tooth Monster" print

and, of course, some teethy items for the kids -

Top row: tooth fairy pillow with chart by looploft, little hemp tooth fairy pillow, "Brush Your Teeth" print via BellyBabies, custom smiley tooth fairy pillows from mallo

In the centre: wall decal by XpressionsThatStick and Tooth Fairy pouch bag by 3crafties

On the bottom: The Official Tooth Fairy Kit from the Office of the Tooth Fairy (I wish this had been around when my kids were losing their teeth) and DentalSaurus Rex Embroidustration by benrum

And finally, for those of you who like a little "bling" -

how could you go past this awesome Mister Pot(ato) Head print by BrokenHeartSocial?

So there you have it - I hope you found some pieces that you can sink your teeth into - sorry, I couldn't resist!

Happy Wednesday,
