Tina Spangler, a.k.a LuxtonLake, uprooted herself from her hectic New York City lifestyle for the woods of Upstate New York five years ago. She found her home in a forgotten community of Narrowsburg, NY, called Luxton Lake. Once a thriving vacation destination for African-American New Yorkers, the area was mostly abandoned in the 1970s when the dam was removed and the lake was drained. Tina found a dilapidated 1950s cabin in foreclosure and with very little funds, decided to take the leap and fix it up.

With an eye for decor from the 1930s and ’40s, Tina loves to salvage old objects and give them new life. From her 1920s linoleum rug to her 1940s barkcloth curtains, this stylish abode has an air of practicality. Tina values the history of her possessions. Whether it’s the dishes her mother dumpster dived, the old medicine bottles she found in the yard of the schoolhouse in which she grew up, or the remnants from the Luxton Lake Clubhouse, each object has a story to tell.

This vintage linoleum rug from LuxtonLake is a rare find. I love the old-fashioned feel and the fact that older linoleum was made with all-natural materials such as pine sap and lindseed oil (unlike what we know as linoleum today, which is really just vinyl).

Tina is the local Luxton Lake historian of sorts. While researching for her short documentary Lucky Lake, she found many bits and pieces of the community’s past. From old signage on the Luxton Lake Clubhouse to forgotten relics from long abandoned houses, Tina has gathered a compelling narrative of New York’s yesteryears.

Tina collects Fire King Jadite‘s beautiful colors and sturdy design, though it was “made probably a little too popular by Martha Stewart,” Tina says. The green is most popular, but Tina’s great-grandparents collected the blue colored glasses.

This teacup from jaditekate is just one of the many wonderful pieces you can find from a variety of vintage jadite sellers on Etsy.

Tina grew up in an old schoolhouse in rural Wisconsin. As a child she would find evidence of the history of the place by the names carved into the bricks and old bottles she would dig up in the yard. Tina likes the things in her house to have a history that she can tell as well as a practical use. She utilizes her collection of old bottles as vases for the flowers she grows in her Narrowsburg garden.

This vintage glass bottle from opendoorstudio would make a lovely vase for your fresh-cut flowers.

Right after college, Tina moved into an apartment in Boston fully furnished with 1940s and ’50s decor left there by the previous elderly tenant. She has been adding to the collection ever since. One of the original treasures she found was an old figurine lamp that she still uses.

This porcelain figurine lamp from castleofcharm reminds me of the pretty lamp in Tina’s little cabin. It doesn’t take much to add a lot of color and style to your end table or bureau.

Tina discovered a wonderful collection of 1940s portrait paintings by Joseph Unger while living in New York. From what she could glean, these works were from a painting class that Unger attended and the subjects were various figure models. This lovely portrait by emberatia makes me think of Tina’s fantastic collection.

    Well done home & video. Handmade & vintage furnishings bring comfort & warmth to a home that simply can't be duplicated. I adore linoleum rugs! When I was a teen, I worked at a store that had oodles of 1920s, 30s linoleum rugs rolled up and stacked on end in the warehouse. I so wanted to buy the room size rose decorated black rug but had no where to store it. To this day I regret not buying it. It cost ten dollars.

Jadite is such a pretty color and looks fabulous showing off in open cupboards. Learned something as well, recall my great grandparents house with the vinyl linoleum, had no clue why they would have covered wood floors. I was just a kid who loved grandma's cookies. Thanks again for sharing your home with us tina and weirdwolf for the story.

It would be fun to follow Luxton Lake's progress on a blog, hint hint ;). The barkcloth deer curtain panel on your closet my favorite barkcloth ever, and I just love your collection of 1940's portraits!

    Tina, I think it is interesting how our tastes are influenced by unsuspecting people and places. Beautiful job and great information.

    This quaint refurbished in the 1920s, 1930s beauty reminds me of my grandmothers duplex. She had one bathroom and it held a clawfoot tub, She had the metal fans, and shelves with items that my grandfather had treasured that originated from his native land Kiruna, Sweeden

    I live in a 1932 cottage and I really appreciate your unique finds. It definitely makes me regret selling my Jadeite at a yard sale, though.
