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.

Use It

Perhaps not perfectly practical, but useful anyway.1. Steampunk Treasure Trunk - SteampunkSaints
2. Clawdescope - remnants
3. Steampunk Clock and Thermometer - diarmentcreations
4. Elegant work lamp - clearcontrast
Often Steampunk devices only have uses in our fertile imaginations. These pieces have actual uses. A box for storing treasures, a working kaleidoscope for viewing the world from a different perspective. A clock and thermometer and a working lamp. Everything beautiful, different and even a little useful...imagine that.

Oh, and don't forget to enter the Great Wunderkammer Giveaway below!

I love all these pieces, but I especially love the simple elegance of that lamp.

Wonderful picks, as always ^_^
