Mom greeting some lovely ladies at a dreamy 1930 Tudor style, home designed by the Twachtman Brother’s on Vineyard Lane... the parkland that surrounds it and its neighbors was conceived as a European style hunting ground by Frederick Law Olmstead.... #dontmakethemliketheyusedto #nomoreteardowns #dreamproject #quality #craftsmanship thank you @helenebarre @courtney_belhumeur @sothebysrealty for organizing such an interesting morning! and to @nicolebrylskincare for showing us all how to #glow 🌿 #linkinbio #ps #allyouneedisyourtoothbrush
The problem with lazy Sundays is that they tend to turn in to “let’s do this real quick” Sundays. He’s installing a light in the closet. #smallimprovement #workingonthehouse
Rough way to start my Sunday Funday!!! 😂😂😂 #dontmakethemliketheyusedto #cantgetright
This #umbrella is 51 years old! My mum bought this for herself when she first arrived in England. I love the #print design(a little Orla Kielyish)& the handle is beautiful. I remember this umbrella sitting in the umbrella stand in mum & dad's hallway. She may even have that stand stored somewhere! #vintage #retro #dontmakethemliketheyusedto
The chandelier is French. The rug is Turkish. The hangings are American. We’re getting quite well traveled up here in the hall. #aroundtheworlddecor #woodrailing #highdrama
No longer the icon of power and performance, but the "visible signs of envy" has definitely gone up! #dontmakethemliketheyusedto #jaguar #x308 #xj8 #classiccars #britishcars #v8classic #재규어 #올드카 #클래식카 #차스타그램
your daughter outgrows her bike, so she takes yours. You’ve got nothing so you pull out your trusty roller blades - they’ve been lonely for years. Husband obliges. Then...😂😂😂 #madeinitaly #dontmakethemliketheyusedto #makeitwork
Sweet little 1962 Mini Cooper in the shop to check out while I wait. #minicooper #austinmini #classiccars #nolstagia #waiting #tires #newtires #restoration #carcrazy #dontmakethemliketheyusedto
Sitting on the front porch and drinking coffee while listening to my grandfathers old radio. This thing is nearly 60 years old and is still trucking. #arvin #dontmakethemliketheyusedto #fall #coffee
These are a few of my favorite things. #spookybatforest #dramaticstairs #foreveroctober
“The truth may be puzzling. It may take some work to grapple with. It may be counterintuitive. It may contradict deeply held prejudices. It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true. But our preferences do not determine what's true.” - Carl sagan . . . . . . . . . . . #brisbane #citylife #treasurycasino #brisvegas #beautifulweather #rainydaysandalleyways #rainydays #iphonephotography #summerstorms #clearbluesky #rain #storm #clouds #alleyways #casino #hotel #australia #summer #architecture #building #dontmakethemliketheyusedto

I totally forgot about this game. One of my first few games on the ps1 🎮 who else remembers #oddworld ?? #oldschool #oldschoolgames #kallielezplaygames #dontmakethemliketheyusedto #geekygamers #lgbtq 🌈 #lgbt #lgbtcommunity #lesbiangamers #classic #ps1 #playstation1
Still a beautiful gem.
Can’t believe I almost missed #NationalHandbagDay 😱 Here’s my trusty vintage Chanel backpack 😘 Got her in 2011 or 2012, can’t remember but it’s one of my proudest purchases. At the time a brand new boutique handbag was way out my purchasing power. EBay was my best friend back then for designer goods, well kind of still is today. The Vintage selection is insane. My mom thought I was absolutely crazy for buying a “used” and “old” bag but I knew it would be a piece I would cherish for years and since backpacks and vintage wasn’t as big as it is now I got it at a super good deal so it fit right into my price point. 🥂 Here’s to many many more years together. Born in 94’ and in better condition than my newer bags. #VintageLove #DontMakeThemLikeTheyUsedTo

F#@king love this song! Haven't listened to it in ages but "Rainbow in the dark" is definitely one of those song you can put on full blast & repeat a handful of times!! N the solo, "🤘🤘🤘🤘" is all that needs saying. Thank you Ronnie James Dio, rip. #ronniejamesdio #ripronniejamesdio #dio #rainbowinthedark #guitar #guitarsolo #hardrock #heavymetal #whatasong #dontmakethemliketheyusedto

Dad and Uncle Steve have a “new” toy. Today was the day to test it out. #dontmakethemliketheyusedto #oldtimethreshingmachine
Remember forever ago when we were sawing holes in our walls? Ta da!! Here’s why. This air return vent used to run in to the master bedroom while the other ran into the downstairs hall (yes. Five feet away from each other). By relocating this branch upward we’ll both quiet the blower noise in the master bedroom and gain a bit of air circulation in the upstairs. We still need to connect to the furnace, but that’s on the list this week. Return cover is from SMI Vents on @Etsy. Would you believe is only $25?! #hvacmagic #fancyeverywhere #airgrille
Well after nearly two years we’ve finally sourced original door knobs for our flat. These came off the doors from the western infirmary so they’re around 140 years old and restored back to their original state. Delighted with the finished result 😍#builttolast #victorian #original #restored #brass #ebony #dontmakethemliketheyusedto #homeinterior #doorknobs #homedecor
Found a old tap on a scrap pile. Polished it ! #resto #vintage #brass #dontmakethemliketheyusedto

Happy Birthday to our resident stick-wielder and winner of the most well-organised wardrobe owner in Mode Atlanta award Mr. Ryan Morgan-Kleinman. Here’s a pic from the days when the bands he was in had terrible names and he was forever cooking up some school-boy caper whilst staring impishly into the middle distance. Not much has changed since then, I see. #familyphoto #backintheday #happybirthday #dontmakethemliketheyusedto #saladdays
The real reason I’m so excited to be back home. #spookybatforest #ahauntingwewillgo #halloweenisalifestyle

Renovated innovation space in SF. This used to be a camera store and many of the original displays and photographs are still there. #capturedbylight #lightl16

So class, what did we learn today? 1. It’s virtually impossible to remove tongue and groove without destroying tongue, groove, or both. It’s still useable. Just aggravating 2. Urea formaldehyde foam insulation is the devil’s work. 3. We get to do it all again tomorrow. 👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻 #demolitionsaturday #rightbackatitagain #worsebeforebetter
