I had to veto the stuff in the first picture. He brought me a tea set from Kyrgyzstan when he was there, so I don't have a need for cups. Not too mention these cups are pieced together and because I don't know what type of glue they use, I would never use it. I am now picky and only want things that will be useful, I have too many things that just sit on shelves these days.
I guess this box is about the size of a hope chest, so I'm not sure how he would even get it back, but if they sell them, then I'm sure there is a way. While I do like it, it's just too big for the amount of space I have. Not too mention, I have 2 smaller ones from another trip he did over there.
This is the same; I think the box is too big for the amount of room I have.
I told him the boxes in the next picture were good. While everything in my house tends to be in the brown family, I told him I actually prefer the colorful box. It looks more representative of the area he is currently at.
These plates and cups were okay, because the handle is the only piece glued on. The goblets would be a no.
The same with these bowls, one piece, so it would be a yes.
These bowls were approved as well.
So, I'm not sure which things he will end up bringing back, but he knows which things have the thumbs up.
