on fire

Rohan Anderson's most precious belongings.

I had one of those slam-hand-against-forehead-why-didn’t-I-think-of-that moments when I came across Foster Huntington and his new blog The Burning House. The premise is so simple it hurts. If your house was burning, what would you take with you?

Fellow blogger Rohan Anderson of Whole Larder Love had been asked to contribute and I was intrigued. So, naturally I got in touch with Foster and asked him a couple of questions:

who are you: my name is Foster Huntington and I live in New York City

where you’re from: I am from Portland Oregon and lived in Maine for four years during college.

inspiration behind the site: I’m fascinated by the choices people make in the things they own.  It tells a lot about where they came from and what they are interested in.  The Burning House condenses the things people own.  What you bring is a conflict between the valuable, sentimental and practical.

how do you choose the people who are profiled: I pick people from different backgrounds.  I want people from all walks of life and interests on the site.

anything else you’d like to add: Submit a post!

And then he asked me to contribute. Colour me flattered. My photo is posted today. And I’m pleased as punch. Click here to see a full list of what I’ve included.

Goose, the cat is my priority!

There’s no doubt  that this idea will be turned into a book. I’d love to know what you think. What would you take? Please leave me a message below.

    I’ve just discovered your blog, via the burning house! Loved your round up of belongings and Goose is just sooo cute! I’m walking around my flat in my head trying to figure out what I’d take with me!

      Hi Sally, thanks so much for leaving a comment. Especially about Goose. Hunter asked me how I got her to stay put in the box like that. It was easy really – she’s hardly ever out of it. I look forward to seeing yours too. Take care, Kate.
