Fun Decor At The Lake...

In my last post, I shared some of my sporting goods collection in our porch at home.  We decorate in a lodge style at our lakehome and use lots of fun sporting goods in our decor there, too!  We mix it up with traditional lodge items and lots of my gameboard items.  Love the two old pillow shams above...the Chanute Field sham is from where I was born!  That was a great find in a local thrift store!  The vintage fishing trophy in the photo below just makes me smile...

A colorful dartboard adds a really graphic touch to a wall...

as do vintage gameboards...

Here's another style of dartboard...

Love the baseball graphics...

Deer items show up here and there...

as do more vintage tennis rackets...

Isn't this vintage Syroco bookend fun?

I love the tin of vintage fishing flies and the lure was my husband's as a boy...

This is one of my favorite pieces of furniture, just a beautiful antique piece and perfect in the lakehouse with old collectibles.  The drawers are full of games and jigsaw puzzles...

Old binoculars are one of my favorite collections...

Hope you enjoyed this peek at the lakehouse...other areas in the home have a vintage beachy look- I'll share those in the future, too!

I am joining Savvy Southern Style's Wow Us Wednesday

Until next time...


  1. How cozy and fun Linda. I love the dart boards, they are neat.

  2. Oh my goodness i just love this post!! This takes me so back to my childhood ...going up to Northern Ontario for vacation! Love love that pillow from BC Canada with the Mounty on it!!! These pillows are priceless. We used to have those same tennis rackets with the wood covers! This lakehouse must be such a fun place.

    Thanks for reminding me that the tray is Italian Floretine!!! IT totally escaped my brain when i did the post. I just purchased nesting tables and have yet to tell my hubby about them!! Hope to bring them home this week.

  3. I just LOVE the vintage game boards! What a cool way to decorate. Your lake house looks perfectly warm and cozy. :)

  4. Linda, you should
    be styling for
    magazines; I truly
    mean it....YOU'VE
    got the eye!! And
    I would so love to
    visit your cabin.
    Just too darn cute.
    Hope you had a great
    weekend, my friend!

  5. Thanks for sharing more of your vintage gameboards! I love the way they look grouped together like that. I also love your Canadian Mounty pillow!!

  6. Fantastic pieces - put together beautifully! Looks great!

  7. So charming...just what a lake home should be. That Mountie pillow is a hoot!


  8. Oh how I love the rugged sports themes for the cabins!!!! LOVE...LOVE...LOVE it!!

  9. Oh please do show us more of your sweet little lake house.
    Your Farmington, BC pillow is wonderful, I lived not far from Farmington BC and used to fill up with gas there every day or so.
    There is only a gas station there today, I think it used to be larger way when. Was that a flea market find?
    I love all of your decor, it's great!
    Hugs, Cindy

  10. Linda, What a wonderful tour of the rustic/lodgy part of your lakehouse. I love the old dresser with the deer perched on top and that corner shelf with the "Lassie" on top! Hope your week is great! Ann

  11. You have some fun collections for your lake house! I love vintage sporting stuff too. Now I need the lakehouse to go with them! :)

  12. Great treasures at your cabin!!!
    Love the Pug card/tag that you received!
    What do you think about having a MN blogger get together???
    Deb :)

  13. How fun. I adore that deer sitting on the dresser. And all the game boards are very cool. I agree with Suzanne at Privet and Holly, you should be styling for magazine shoots! Who do I call to set that up?

  14. Oh, you have some great stuff, Linda. I love that bowling pin dartboard. I've never seen anything like that. Your lake house looks wonderful. I want to see more :)

  15. Oh Linda...I love it all! Especially the wall of old games!

  16. Can I just say...amazing! I love it. It is so cute and reminds me of cabins when I was young which will tell you how old I am. I am just eating up those game boards. What a fabulous collection!

  17. Your lake house looks so cozy and inviting, Linda! I love your vintage books, and the pillows are awesome! I especially love the Canadian Mounty one! And the one of the town where you were born is a real treasure, too!

  18. I feel like I was just on a mini-vactiona!! What a wonderful relaxing! The graphics of the old dartboards are awesome!

    Happy summer to you!



  20. Where else would you find all those wonderful camping, hunting, summer, wonderful items but at the lakeside cabin. Thank you for sharing.

  21. Linda so many people had cabins when I lived in Minnesota, no one that I know here in Florida has one! Yours is great! Deb and I had the best time, only it was hotter there than here in Orlando...Thought I was going die!!!


  22. Very nicely done, following the lodge theme without going too far out. I laughed when I saw that even the books have camping subjects.

  23. Yes I DID enjoy this peak around the lakehouse.

    It looks so beautiful, homely and peaceful.


  24. Oh, I really love this! Lodge decor is one of my favorite kinds. The dresser is just amazing, and the games and sporting decor all works wonderfully! thanks so much for linking up with VIF, xoxo Debra
