My home is full of vintage items, collected treasures, plants and books. Boxes of Lego, wooden blocks, hex bugs and train track. Far too many wine glasses, a stock pile of marmalade in the larder (in case of Armageddon) and we collect a fair amount of fluff and dust too.
But if I was to lose this all, if god forbid there was a fire, what would I save. My family are safe, that is a given. So what would I grab on my way out, what would I miss? More Than Insurance have posed me this question, what three items would I grab.
First, my phone. Sad but true. I feel lost without it. It holds everything in my life, contacts, diary, photographs – the key to my world.
Secondly, my camera. I love my camera, in fact I love Dan’s camera too. His old Canon SLR which he used whilst completing his photography A level. With this beauty he shot New York at the tender age of 18. Later he documented the birth of Charlie with it, so there is a lot of history in this camera and I’d have to grab that.
Thirdly, I have two vintage dresses in my wardrobe. Both are my Grandmothers. One a beautiful black and white checked 1950’s full skirted dress, like something straight out of Mad Men. The second is a white, fringed swing dress from the 1960’s. Both I’d love to wear, both are sized minute. They are hers and I shall cherish them forever.
What would you save? More importantly what would you insure?
