Believe it or not, we squeezed two twin beds in the boy’s bedroom and they each stayed in their own beds last night 🙌🏻 HOLLAFREAKINLUJAH, if you missed my stories, Noah was bunking with Finn for the past however many weeks and wouldn’t sleep on the top bunk, so back to twins we went. I don’t play when it comes to sleep, just ask Matt 😉 I hope it’s sunny and warm [somewhat] wherever you may be, my friends ♥️

I love good #deserve2preserve updates!!! This house has been empty since I moved to this little city about 7 years ago. Being the house creeper I am, I was always holding out some hope she would be saved! The house went up for auction last year and I can finally share an update! She’s still empty but it looks like work is moving along and I’m glad the details are being respected. Swipe for a photo I took of it in 2016. 🏚 #archi_ologie#oldhouselove#housestalker#savedoldhouse

707 S. Regester Street (Built ~1760) is one of the few remaining original wooden rowhouses. It is a well preserved relic of Baltimore’s Colonial-era.
Decades of strange floor finishing decisions have amounted to this moment🤘🏻this is essentially what the pine floors under the wall-to-wall carpeting in our house looks like 🥴 not sure if it’s subfloor or actual floor... how do you know? The rest of our house has awesome floors but these are so bizarre. Someone explain how floors end up finished in 10 different ways in different places 😂
Ginger Jars & Tulips! 😍Tulips in every room of our house it must be Spring! We finally found the perfect drapes for this room. Anyone who owns an old house probably knows how hard it is to find drapes for tall ceilings! 😚
Feeling like you lean a little more traditional in your vintage rug search? Meet Opal. She’s a vintage turkish rug, that lives up to the glimmer of her name. Gentle teals are accented by timeless reds, as both players are anchored by easy white and suggestions of sage green. Did I mention she’s got fringe?! Detail lovers, rejoice as this fringe is in basically unheard of vintage condition! Opal is handwoven by Anatolian women, who oftentimes told stories through their designs. She’s 100% wool and vegetable dyed as all of my favorites are. She’ll be the crowning jewel of a large living room, bedroom or dining room, sure to anchor your space in all the right ways. $550 adds this gem to your jewelry box home. 9’ 10” x 7’ 6”. Delivery available within Nashville for an additional fee. Shipping available outside of Nashville for an additional fee.
1930’s Tudor in Grosse Pointe Park, MI. Very unique tile on this one. Light mint green with a interesting glaze, almost looks like abalone shells, beautiful. Also, the floor tile pattern and the original sink and tub. Love it 😍
Went shopping at our local bookstore in our downtown today and parked in front of one of our town's most iconic buildings. This was built in the late 1800s by the Gottschalk family who owned the brick factory nearby (on our street). A long time ago it was just too big of a house and in the center of downtown for any one family to afford. It was divided into offices and apartments. A lot of the original character still exists inside. The street out front is our town square where all of our town festivals are held. During our holiday lights celebration, I always feel like I'm walking through a classic Christmas movie set. #oldhouse#oldhouselove#queenanne#victorian
The Murat Temple was built in 1909 by the William P. Jungclaus Company using the designs of Murat Shriner Oscar D. Bohlen, with Middle Eastern and Egyptian stylings that were fitting for a building intended for Shriners. The Murat Shrine is mostly known by the people of Indianapolis for its theater, which was built in 1910. In its early days it featured Broadway plays and even a 1932 speech by Winston Churchill. Gorgeous piece of architecture! 💛
We officially have enough inventory to sell! Our old house is coming down. While that may be sad to some, it was already in such poor condition when we bought our property that we couldn’t possibly have salvaged it. So we’re reclaiming the beauty it does have to share and preserve in the homes of others! If you are interested in Civil War era beams or siding, we’ve got it. As we get further into the project of taking the house down, the era from which wood comes from will change. So, if you like old stuff, get on it now!! Message us for details on pricing and availability.
Unrelated to this photo but a new blog post is up and it's about my favorite tea room in Brussels! 🍵 #capturingourdays

1930’s Spanish in Riverside, CA. Wow, what an unbelievable original bathroom. This one has it all multiple arches, hex tiles, design tiles, built ins, one of the best color combos. The rest of the house is wonderful as well. I will save the kitchen for a later post.

It’s Friiiiiiiiiday! I have a few minutes of kid free time this morning, so I thought I would answer some of the most asked questions about this pantry door. I had this antique door for about 5-6 years prior to building this house. It just so happened that I hoarded it that long just because I loved it. It turned out to be absolutely perfect for this spot we created in our home, as it is a narrow door. There wasn’t a pantry in the kitchen originally and it was a must have for me. The door came from an old house salvage business that has been (sadly) shut down for years now. The owner told me it was from an old home in Virginia that was scheduled for demolition. It as a late 1800’s home. That is all I know about it. The door knob is real amber, but it was taken off of our front doors (that are also antiques) and put to use here. I didn’t stain this door, in fact I had all of the other wood in my kitchen (the cabinet doors, wood trim on hood and butcher block) custom matched to the original patina of this door. I added the transom window above (it is not original) and the transom operator. I hope I covered it all! Happy Friday friends!
