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.

Steam Team

Some things are even better in person like my new friends from the Steam Team.1. Steampunk gas mask in natural brown - TomBanwell
2. Juniper Cuffs (Pair) - Choklit
3. Oh My Stars and Garters, Volume 1 - art book - industrialfairytale
4. Brass Key Choker - nullalux
I was lucky to attend and vend at the Maker Faire this weekend with my steam team friends so this post is for them! Toms masks are amazing in pictures and more fabulous up close. The Maker Faire patrons looked for him long after he'd gone. You can not possibly understand the sheer decadence of Choklit's cuffs and collars until you've seen the silk in person, so worth every penny. Indy had her amazing art and jewelry flying off the table and no wonder it is so full of personality. Nullalux's many gadgets and jewelry and so much more was infinitely more amazing in person than in pictures. There are more, but we'll save them for tomorrow.

Great selection from a talented group of people that I got to meet...well, except for Tom [blame my wife who is horrible at introductions and our little girls that I had to go chase around the faire!]

Awww, you're a doll! It was such a treat to get to meet so many Steam Teamers in person - Maker Faire was definitely a ridiculously brilliant whirlwind of fun for me, and hanging out with you was a big part of that!!

It sure would be grand to see this fine work in person. Maker Faire sounds like a blast
