What would you do if …?


While browsing The Interwebs, I found a blog with one of the most original concepts that I’ve seen in a while. The Burning House askes the following question: What you would take with you if your house was burning? According to Foster, the founder of the blog, these items tell the reader what you find important in life. It will reflect what you’re are passionate about, what you care about and what is of great practical use. This question therefore comes down to conducting an in dept interview. Other than blog concepts like The Coveteur, where they select themselves who comes onto the site, The Burning House ask YOU, the reader. On this website, you can submit a photo to describe what you would take with you. The first thing that comes to mind is taking my pets, my Ray-Ban sunglasses and my favorite pair of shoes (although I would still have to decide which pair that is). The rest I seriously need to think about. Therefore we would like to forward the thought and ask you, What would you take with you if your house was burning?

Photos: The Burning House

I’m so excited to let you know that I’ve started a new blog. You can find me on Rooftop Antics. See you there!

Be sure to let us know if you find this inspiring and decide to submit a photo to The Burning House yourself. Another “What would you do if …” question will be showing up on the blog shortly.

  4. I always have some of those huge canvas bags within reach so I can quickly stuff my entire wardrobe in them in case something would happen. You can easily throw those out the window. :p If everything were to go up in flames, you’d probably have to visit me in a mental institution :,-)
    + I’d take my laptop and hard drive with me, since all of my pics are on there and my cat Nemo <3

  6. I would take with me: my boyfriend and my cat, my laptop, my passport -in case I would have to come back to Perú- and the bag I was wearing that day because in it I can find basic things like wallet, cell phone, personal documents, family pics…-. All the rest can be replaced in any moment…
