Vintage Lake Life

A few of our favorite things from the curated cabin tchotchke collection.

Never can have too many souvenirs of your own state. Big fish!

 From the mushroom decade. 1970s! Hull dripware fungus S or P needs S or P mate.

Frankoma made for the Oklahoma Golden Jubilee 1957. 
Who doesn't need a drink from a Cup O' Kindness every now and then?

We always pat down departing company and check their suitcases for this little gem that is the envy of many who have stayed in the vacation kitsch guestroom. 

Depending on the week or day you could score your own online without resorting to the old five-finger discount..

Ah yes, the grease canister. We have the entire set, but the coffee one is the most used and practical favorite followed by the grease pot as favorite in the curiosity factor category. 

Don't tell, but it is a very good place to hide things. No one suspects M and Ms to be in it and they are too afraid of finding old bacon fat to look.

Last, the vintage dish towel. Soft, absorbent, colorful, corny. Can't get enough of them. Products featured here: Frisco, Suz, 67 Sauce, and several with iconic label images or design, all cleverly avoiding copyright infringement. Perhaps the nascence of the knock-off phenomenon? 

One of these days we will actually move into this century with our decor, but the order of business at the cabin is lolling around, and even if change is going to happen, considering the pace of  lake life, don't be holding your breath unless it is because you are doing a cannonball off the dock.
