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.

Keyed Off

Steampunk, goggles, gears and keys.1. Passage Necklace no. 143 - sojourncuriosities
2. Ornate VICTORIAN door plate and keys assemblage collage altered wall art - gymbohannah
3. Steampunk Quilt - Aranel
4. Who Holds The Key - Mini Copper Journal - EKCreations
It may take a month of Sundays to really explain what Steampunk is to the uninitiated, but aesthetically, in a few words, you can say goggles, gears and keys and they'll have the gist. I've done goggles and gears so here's keys. Try searching for keys and you'll find enough assemblage jewelry to kill a person with, but sift carefully and you might find a few gems like this journal or quilt. There are also many works of art, photos and bits and bobs for every taste.

I really enjoyed these picks. The quilt is especially beautiful and creative. Who knew something as simple as keys and gears could be so diverse in their applications?

More nice items. I wouldn't have thought to make a steam punk quilt.
