Logan Martin Lake Decor Map

 Ain't she pretty! She's all dressed up in a barnwood frame and ready to go to the lake house warming party. You will be so proud when you walk in with the prettiest gift at the party! Beautiful Logan Martin Lake.

Interestingly, on Logan Martin Lake there’s a tiny unique island named Pirate's Island. It's only 30 feet by 30 feet, but it is very popular in the summer time. It has a pirate flag, tiki, palm tree, a hammock and a treasure chest. The chest has all sorts of beads and jewels.

One fun thing to do is to leave a treasure, such as Mardi Gras beads and take a treasure. Kids love this!

A true Treasured Place!

I have hundreds of maps on my website that can be purchased  from the site, or I can do custom and personalized vintage style lake maps, too. Lake maps will add beauty to your Lake House Decor! Find out more interesting facts about my treasured maps by paddling over to

Oh Yeah, unlike most maps there's a tiny mermaid hidden in the waters which folks love to search for and some say she moves around! You'll love the waterfowl which are hand painted (touched up) on the canvas prints to give that original look and each map is hand signed by Leo.

A Lake Memory

I was working on a map of the Tennessee River the other day for a customer. It included the section of the river that shows Danville TN. As I was working on the map, I felt something different about this map. However, I just couldn't pin point why this map was special. I didn't finish the map that day and put it aside. 

The next day, when I started back on the map, It Hit Me, I've been here before! It was with my dad and a fishing buddy. I was twevle years old. It was early spring and we were in a bass boat fishing along the railroad tussel that extendes across the water near the Danville Ferry. We were fishing for catfish and using chicken livers, yes chicken livers. A very funny thing happened that day! 

As I was casting out, my juicy chicken liver flew off my hook and splat on the side of my dad's head, right above his ear. I watched the liver slowly slide down, stop and curl around his ear with juice running down. It was so funny, but I wasn't sure if I should laugh. However, my dad and his fishing buddy busted out laughing. It was so funny when he reached up and flung the bait into the water. It was a cool memory and it all strated with a "Treasured Map".  Remember: "Get away from the big screen and get on a be stream..." Paddle over to my website site, to see some beautiful Lake, River and Bay maps.
