I got you Abe: Souvenirs from the Land-O-Lincoln

Abe's head on a stick, anyone?

Lincoln beard (no shaving required)

Lincoln mask (fool your friends!)

Who wants nuts?

Technically, these aren't Lincoln souvenirs,
but Civil War knickknacks don't come any creepier.

Lincoln and a big fan.

The sticker on the plate reads "Note for Food Use: Food Consumed from this Vessel May Be Harmful". In other words, it's for lookin', not cookin'.


What friend or loved-one wouldn't want one of the fine Abraham Lincoln mementos offered by the splendid gift and souvenir emporiums of Springfield, Illinois?

I couldn't resist the Lincoln head on a stick. It's just too odd!

Looks like Bad-Fruit-Man's head on a stick. Remember him?

Great blog I was wondering where you found the lincoln souvenirs, specifically the mask and the chomper on a stick. Any hel p would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks and happy travels

I saw those souvenirs at the gift shop at the big, beautiful Abraham Lincoln Museum in Springfield.

Some pretty designs alright. Doing the painting yourselves is more fun but a good place for ideas for more design is this site of, that I use to help with my wall decorations.
You can browse for a painting like this The tree, by 20th century Czech artist, Frantisek Kupka, for example, , that can be ordered on line and delivered to you.
