Welcome

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.

Animal

It takes more than clock parts to make a SteamPunk Animal.
1. Cyborg Seahorse Necklace -- Model 532 - roamingrabbit
2. Dragon Steampunk Sculpture - IckyDogCreations
3. Clockwork Bird Model no. 57 - HazelFisherCreations
4. Sebastian the Steampunk Mouse - TheHouseOFMouse
It honestly drives me a little batty that so much "SteamPunk" jewelry are the same uninspired clockwork pieces. So when I saw this little seahorse, I thought, wow steampunk animals and a theme was born. I discovered that The House Of Mouse, who I adore, did steampunk. Then I searched and discovered IckyDogCreations many clockwork sculptures and the adorable bird illustrations. Sometimes we just have to look a little harder for truely inspired work.
