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.

    Enjoyed this video thank you for opening your home to all of us. Love the pictures of the ladies on your walls, the bark cloth covering the closet such pretty colors. 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 is fun to take a peek into her creative genius. It looks like she has a great eye for color as well as giving history a new life in her cabin-home. Nice article.

Isn't it comforting to be welcomed home and to be surrounded by things you love! And the simplest the lilies in soda bottles...make the clearest statements about you and your chosen "place". I had to smile when I looked at your hoosier cupboard shelves. Shelf paper with the drop edge...what a classic! (I have some vintage shelf lining paper listed now.) Thanks so much for the video...Good Luck to you on etsy!

    Tina, I love adventurous and proactive chicks like you! Your style is beautiful, and your cottage renovation and the work you are doing to bring "Lucky Lake" back is inspiring. Fantastic documentary. My husband and I renovate older homes and if I lived anywhere near you, we would jump in and help bring some love back to Luxton Lake. 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!

    Fabulous video--this really spoke to me! I left NYC 10 years ago and now live on a lake in a semi-rural area. I can't say I've fixed up a house like Tina has (so admirable and inspiring!), but her aesthetic and philosophy (things don't need to be perfect, or all from the same era) is very similar to mine. I had never heard of linoleum rugs! Wonderful. Can't wait to watch the Lucky Lake documentary. Cheers to you, Tina and weirdwolf!
