“If your house was burning, what would you take with you?” It’s a question you might have worryingly asked yourself some sleepless night when you were unable to drift off. It’s also a question that’s been put to the Internet by The Burning House. The attractive Tumblr displays user-submitted photos and lists of the items people hold dearly enough to save from incineration. Each post shows both trinkets and valuables in artistic arrangements, with everything from the logical (pets, heirlooms, MacBook Pros) to the bizarre (drugstore makeup, 3-D glasses) to the affected (cigarette case, half-empty bottles of alcohol) represented. While the jam-packed photos almost uniformly emphasize beauty over believability, scrolling through this Tumblr ultimately leaves you thinking about the items you care most about in life, and why.
