Blog I Love: The Burning House

The Burning House, created by Foster Huntington, is a blog where individuals from all over the world can post photos and lists of what they would bring with them if their house was on fire. Here is the full premise:

"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." 

It definitely made me start thinking about what I would take with me if I were in that situation. I think I will build my own Burning House photo and list and share it with you.

What would you take with you?

Here are a few interesting photos from The Burning House....I love how each photo is it's own little piece of art:

The Burning House also teamed up with Anthropologie on their Anthropologist site to create a generational response to the Burning House question. Among the 20 contributors, their ages ranged from 10 to 91. It is really interesting too see how each generation handles this question. Check it out here.
