Many years ago, I had a dentist tell my then husband that he should put away 2% of his income for my dental work.  God bless the dentist who is no longer with us, may he rest in peace.  And the husband is no longer with me.  But my teeth live on! With the exception of two dental implants, they are all mine.

According to thesoapseduction, “Kletus Klump stole Grandma’s teeth, and even Stone Phillips can’t make her happy. (If you have no idea what I’m talking about, check out The Nutty Professor II).

These soaps are scented in chocolate mint ’cause Grandma loves those Andes after-dinner chocolates.”

Irma and Chuck firmly believed that one could retain one’s modesty whilst poolside and still make a fashion-forward statement.

HummingbirdEyes   has put together an interesting collection of vintage and antique artifacts.  It is entitled “Teeth are Useful Tools,” and features an illustration from a 1930s children’s health textbook, custom framed and embellished with two miniature sets of vintage resin choppers.

 Night Heap by BobHornerArt is pretty self-explanatory.

While walking the narrow streets of Budapest, FriendlyMade spotted this unique sign and took the picture. A friendly Hungarian translated it as “Denture Repair.”

And finally, dreamypleasures suggests that you “crack off a few teeth and drop them in your tart warmer! Or leave them sitting out and wait for the laughs!”

  3. That’s so funny, because I have to get 3 crowns in the next two weeks! ahhhhh! I have some kind of obsession with dental stuff because it shows up in my work over and over.

    I have one piece called “The Thinker” about bruxism — my prodigious teeth grinding, http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=26582543

    and another one called “Neutrox Man” which is a figural piece balanced on an Antique Neutrox Tooth Powder tin.

    heeheehee! Love your blog!
