Have you heard of The Burning House? It is a website devoted to documenting what items people would save if their house was burning down. The site’s description says,
“If your house was burning, what would you take with you? It’s a conflict between what’s practical, valuable and sentimental. What you would take reflects your interests, background and priorities. Think of it as an interview condensed into one question.”
The site contains really interesting entries, all of which evoke different personalities, moods, and sentiments. A few of my favorites are above. People of all ages, occupations, and locations are featured on the site.
Would you consider submitting your own photo and list to The Burning House? What items would you include?
