All the cute and the precious have been found. All the kitties and puppies have homes. The candy colored, the eco-friendly, the hipsters of the handmade are all duly covered elsewhere. Here I will find the slightly odd, the darkly beautiful, the elegant and steamy pieces of goodness. I am very particular in my tastes and though I promise you that I will share nothing but the most intriguing of my discoveries, you may not always like them. I must also confess that I have no real artistic nor fashion background to base my finds upon. These are simply discoveries dug up from the depths of etsy or perhaps elsewhere, brushed off and presented for your approval.

Gadgets and Gizmos

SteamPunk and Neo-Victorian pieces can be useful or not. These gadgets appear to be both, well if you use your imagination anyway.
1. Persephone's Bike - perrinspage
2. Steampunk style Time Machine - urbandon
3. Steampunk Dream Box - johndonaldcarlucci
4. Ninotchka - Small Victorian Lamp Shade - lamplighter

Really these are pieces of art from an era of alternate history. Pieces lost and discarded, beautifully assembled by makers and artisans. A bike that can no longer move is now a piece of art. An assemblage of parts imagined into a piece of technology to move through time or very very space of dream. Then to light it all a lampshade both beautiful and functional.

Need time machine, bad. Then I can just keep going back to Friday at 6pm when the weekend starts, instead of being stuck in Monday morning.
