Today’s Ten on Tuesday topic was inspired by something I heard in a podcast. The hosts were discussing what books they would save if their house caught on fire and I thought – hmmmm – that could be tweaked to 10 Things You Would Save If Your House Was On Fire. For the sake of this exercise we are assuming that all family, people & pets are safe.
- The Ten Commandments that my great-great-grandmother cross stitched. On paper. That would be the first thing I would grab.
- My laptop and external hard drive. Sure, most of my stuff is on the cloud but it would be a lot easier to have the actual computer.
- My Reeves spinning wheel. Irreplaceable, in my opinion.
- Photo albums. All of them – which actually isn’t that many.
- All of my quilts. They are family heirlooms in the making and I’d hate to lose them.
- As much yarn as I could carry but I would pay particular attention to my stash of Knitterly Things Vesper Sock Yarn.
- Scrapbooks. I have 3 that I did years ago when Creative Memories was a big thing. I would definitely want to save them from a fire.
- My cameras and lenses. I know insurance would cover this but still – I love my cameras.
- My mother’s silver. Sure, it’s replaceable but it wouldn’t be the silver that she used for every holiday and special occasion. Sentimental value is huge around here.
- My copy of The Mill on the Floss. It was a college graduation present from my dear friend, Chrissie, and the inscription is something I treasure. I’d definitely grab this.
We all have so much stuff. It’s been interesting to think about how much of that stuff truly matters. I hope you wrote a post for today and I hope you will include your link by clicking the button below. Don’t forget to sign up to receive the weekly Ten on Tuesday email by clicking here.
