a standing lamp with an adjustable little bit and dimmer switches for both bits


a videogame where you make friends with a big weird monster and climb around serene and beautiful ruins


a nice glass teapot that you can see your super expensive bamboo shoots green tea brewing in and easily top up with hot water, reminding you of the lovely time you went to the cute chinese teahouse with your mother and they had these and it turns out they were for sale

assorted books. some from your wishlist, some bought with the voucher for the cute local bookstore your boss gave you. a big pink notebook you intend to use as a personal cookbook for tried and trusted recipes


a wooden art reproduction from your parents' house. they're packing up, ready to move from the family home in about 2 weeks time. this isn't making the cut, so to you it goes. it turns out no one knows what it's of or who it's by. apparently it came with the house when they moved in thirty years ago
it's a heavy thing

a bottle of homemade damson gin from your parents' garden. the last vintage



two busts from your grandpa's old study. you have always admired them but there's a pang of melancholy acquiring these treasures from him whilst he's still here, but slowly diminishing day by day in a retirement home. at least he still has the catdoge bust you got him from venice on his mantlepiece at the home.

i played a couple of hours of last guardian so far and i loooooooooove it. the animal behaviour is so well done and the environments are lovely

I’ve been needing a new PS4 game to play. I wonder if Last Guardian is part of the End of Year sale...

What a lovely Christmas full of thoughtful gifts.

I have been wanting a lamp like that. It looks like the one my in-laws have which is basically a sun lamp on account of the brightness. We bought one thinking it would be like that but it's terrible, ugly, and lacks the capacity to brighten/dim.

yeah this one is so perfect. my parents have a basically identical one and obviously paid attention to me being envious

Sounds like a lovely Christmas. All of your gifts sound meaningful/thoughtful. I love the teapot!
27 days ago - Saturday 12/28/19 - 12:08:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
the teapot is probably my favourite
27 days ago - Saturday 12/28/19 - 12:22:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
That gin is dark as f*ck!
27 days ago - Saturday 12/28/19 - 12:23:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
it's damson gin
it's really sweet and delicious and incredibly alcoholic

Teapot is my favorite too, aside from the lamp I want.
27 days ago - Saturday 12/28/19 - 2:36:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
Great stuff!

I like the lamp, I wish I could have a room with more industrial looking furniture.

The rest is cool too. I love items that have some personal history to them.

I always wanted to start a photo album of pictures of old pictures of strangers you find in flea markets.

I've only seen that once, at an antique store. The photos were labeled something like "no family? make one up using these!"

I had to look up damson gin but I need it.

seen what
27 days ago - Saturday 12/28/19 - 3:28:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
Old family pictures for sale

Nice stuff!

I'm thinking about asking for an xbox for my birthday next year so I can play Jedi: Fallen Order.
27 days ago - Saturday 12/28/19 - 4:30:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
i have no interest in xbox tbh

I like your haul+ sorry that your parents finally sold the house, that's probably tough.

That's cool. I think I'd rather give an xbox a go than a ps4.
27 days ago - Saturday 12/28/19 - 5:24:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
yeah
i'm probably more philosophical about it than my sister who is still f*cking PISSED

we both get it are are fine and nice but it's upsetting

It's weird when your childhood home's gone, especially if you spent your whole childhood there (I did).
