The Burning House

I've seen this popping up on quite a few blogs. I thought I'd repost it because before I left Australia my mum made me make a pile of stuff to take if the house was going to burn down/they got evacuated. I live on a river in Sydney near a lot of bushland and bush fires have always been a threat. She also made me do this the year before when I went to London over the Australian summer time. Back to this. It's a sweet/sort of sad project and gives real insight into what people treasure vs what they think they'll need. I know my collection included photographs, my hard-drive, artworks, my favourite cd, my favourite shoes, special things that would only mean something to me and lots of other objects... knowing that hopefully my parents would also pick up my dogs too. I thought it would be mean to lock them in a box for a year just in case the house might burn down!
