    Interesting how many people would grab their phones and their passports – I’d probably pick those very same things (add my wallet as well) in any emergency

    Really cool idea for a project. I never really know what I’d grab, but probably my gadgets (laptop, camera, phones), and my guitars.

  10. That’s a hard question…. I know for sure I would grab my cute little puppy, Leroy. And like you I would grab some pictures or my computer with all my pictures on it. I am so excited I found your blog today! I look forward to going back and reading older post so I can get to know you better. I would be delighted if you would visit my blog and tell me what you think. I am also having a giveaway that you might like.

    Thank you

    These photos are beautiful but I don’t think there’s any material thing I cherish enough to grab in a fire. I’d definitely save my dog, though.

    These photos are amazing! First thing I’d grab is my dog, then anything else I could grab but it wouldn’t really matter as long as he got out!

    @Donna, that is her camera bag. Great isn’t it? I have seen those at garage sales, and flea markets. Keep your eyes out, and you will find one.
    Erica and I will be sending in our photos soon! Can’t wait to do this.

    What a lovely project. I really like how the people involved captured everything into a single photograph. I would most definitely take my photo collection and probably my phone, wallet, and a few jewelry items that have an emotional value. Thanks for sharing.

  31. So beautiful. A friend sent this to me as last year I threw in my job in senior management to pursue my dream of running a fashion label centred around this concept. I called the label ‘Bento’ – in my game, you were only allowed to take seven things – to fit the seven compartments in a standard Bento box.

  32. No need to replace hoses, fittings, pumps or expensive equipment.

    Contact with eyes can result in extreme irritation, which can even be serious.

    The airbrush tan will gradually fade over time as the dead skin layer starts
    to fall off though it can be reapplied every week for
    a great sunless tan.

  33. After going through the various services offered and their respective rates and charges, you can narrow down your list based on your budget
    and choose the company that offers the best service.

    There are ways to make the process simple so that
    you can continue to experience the thrill of moving out of your house.
    Using a yacht delivery service is a simple decision for sea-crossings, but
    what about moving a motor yacht interstate from say Sydney to Brisbane or San Francisco to Los Angeles.
