My Little Cabin


Model Railroad Log Cabin with Original Paint (LEO Design)


Modern people—especially urban denizens—often long for a little place in the country where they can get-away from the bustle of workaday life.  A place to go, perhaps for the weekend, where they can relax amidst nature and "recharge their batteries."   The Adirondacks in Upstate New York is full of city dwellers (at least on the weekends).  Bostonians choose Cape Cod, New Hampshire or Maine to get away.  And the many (many) islands which populate the waterways near Stockholm are dotted with thousands of cute red and white weekend cabins.  Whether used for hunting, fishing, reading or cooking, these little weekend homes provide the rest and relaxation needed to counteract the hustle-and-bustle of modern, city life.

This little log cabin, made in the Forties or Fifties, was likely found alongside a child's model train track or in a Christmas Village under a tree.  Perhaps it will remind you of that special little cottage, real or imagined—but far from the madding crowd.  Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
