THE BURNING HOUSE




I have a confession to make. I'm one of those creepers who when I'm visiting your house I take it all in. I wonder what's in every cabinet. You're catching me up on whats new and I'm wondering what's hidden in the drawers of your new bureau. When I go to your bathroom you'd better believe I open the cabinets to see what kind of lotion you use during the Winter. I told you, I'm a creeper! I'm just so curious about how others live. I think that's largely my attraction to interior decorating blogs and things like The Selby. I get a glimpse into the life of another person. It's so fascinating to me!

Naturally when I came across The Burning House blog it quickly became one of my favorites. The blog poses the question- if your house was burning what would you grab in a mad dash to bring with you? I submitted this picture of some of my most prized possessions and it got posted! I was so thrilled to see it on there!

What would you bring with you if your house was burning?

  1. I too am a house visiting creeper :] I love looking at people's photos, art on the walls, the books they have, and every little knick-knack. Glad to know I'm not the only one!

    Love your blog by the way! I've been a reader for a little while, but never commented until now.

  7. Love it! I should do this sometime. Of course my kitties would be first on the list! :)

    Also...I'm leaving this comment because I want to see if it says something about being notified by email for follow up comments. Or did you figure it out? I never got a notification from the last one so I just wanted to check out what happens with a new comment.

    1. As far as I can tell these comment replies do not send notifications maybe unless you subscribe to them? I haven't figured it out! Let me know what you've come up with!

      You should absolutely do a Burning House entry. Take some of those beautiful flowers you photograph so often with you!
