Weekly thingy and the Seven of Cups/Allerleirauh

This is not the best known story but I’ve already talked through it once so huzzah, easy post! Allerleirauh aka All-Kinds-of-Fur is packing her treasures to run away before her father can (vomit) marry her. According to the story she packs her three new dresses (bright as the sun, the moon, and the stars respectively) each in a walnut shell. There’s no specifics about the golden spinning wheel, ring, and reel beyond what they are but she hides them in bowls of soup later so clearly these are tiny trinkets, not usable items, so I figured walnut shells all around. Oooooh for a walnut shell with a teensy weensy golden spinning wheel inside it, so cute! Honestly I don’t need it to be gold, I just love tiny things hidden in other things. Why did I never have any Polly Pockets?

Also we never get specifics about what the fuck kind of reel she has that’s tiny and golden – I’ve always read it as a spool, like a reel of cotton that you sew with, and that makes way more sense to me in context with the spinning wheel than a fishing reel, so that’s what you get.

This is kind of a rough week for me so let’s just go with supportive friends and leave it there.
