The Burning House

Last summer, Tanya had a great post on what she'd save from her house if it caught on fire.  It's a provocative question that revels a lot about what a person values. Well, there's now an amazingly cool (and beautiful) website devoted to the question.  The Burning House posts photos of the items that people would grab in their moment of truth.  Here's my entry:

It's curious - many of the pictures on the website include things that should be easily replaceable - yarn and knitting needles? Pairs of shoes? A camera? Seems weird to me. Like Tanya, I'd be so caught up in trying to take family memorabilia (photos, kids' artwork, etc.) that I just wouldn't have time for my knitting needles, no matter how much I love them.
