2022 Destash-Along

It’s cloudy, dang it!



I ordered most of these from Aliexpress but the best rainbow throwers are from a high-end crystal shop. I feel like I can’t possible have too many of them so I’ll be putting one very good quality crystal on my yearly wish list for family to give me. They always ask what I want & I never had a good answer before now.
I even made some little ones into earring.

I told @Pigeon I’m “crystal rainbow woman” now, she was not supportive of that name change :smile:

I had no idea they were large like that! WOW!

No more name changes, but you can use it as an AKA with your other previous name! They all fit, but I think your current one is the most beloved and befitting!

I just destashed this incredible piece of fabric to a friend of Rob’s.


I’ve had it for decades, it has history for me & is beyond special. But it’s doing nothing for me folded up in the closet.
It was made in Isfahan Iran, hand spun, woven & printed. He’s Persian, I think he will be very surprised to receive it.

That is a wonderful gift…I have a gorgeous blue and white tablecloth from Greece that sits in a packing box…I know a Greek family that might be interested in it and will use it. We just don’t use tablecloths unless they are specific holiday ones.

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: Rainbow on!

Daughter has decided she’s over dollhouse minis so most of the big, huge collection I “destashed” to her a few years ago is headed to the thrift store.


I did stuff a few cute things into the tchotchke sheves.


And some more select items will get mailed to a few lucky peeps.
I feel good about letting this stuff go…

…miniatures??? :heart_eyes: (Is that a grandfather clock?)

It is, it’s rough though. I could knock something better together with cardboard.

Yeah, I keep looking at the grandfather clock options online & they’re all pretty sad. Phoey.

I didn’t use them all but these felt cut outs have been in my stash for maybe 2 decades.
