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.

These Bugs I Like1. Verdigris Dragonfly Necklace - mcstoneworks
2. SPECIMENS - steampunk insect art prints - brigidashwood
3. Steampunk Curio Cabinet - Phizzychick
4. The Insect-a-Scope - BeeBeetle
I was afraid after the last post, you would think I was an insect hater. That could not be further from the truth...except for ants in the house...and wasps...and cockroaches...those can die a horrible death. Other than that though, they rock.

I apologize for my absence yesterday as I returned home from the cool coast to the arid valley. I apologize also for the lack of cohesion of these finds. I think they're awesome, but I'm not certain they go together. My brain, however, is not currently capable of any better...maybe tomorrow.

Do You Have The Time1. GEOTRONICS 2 handcrafted watch
2. GRADIATOR handcrafted watch
3. steam punk FLYBACK OCTAGONE handmade watch
4. old steampunk watch OUT OF TIME handmade watch

All pieces by revolt70

I've featured this artist before but the shop really does deserve it's own feature. In a world of steampunk artists ripping apart watches to make nonfuctioning pieces of 'art', it's refreshing to see someone still putting them together to tell time and be art.

3. Clockwork hard leather bra - Custom - BruteForceStudios
4. Sock-Bot no.9-a stuffed robot - MisfitMenagerie
Some days I just go though a random Steampunk search to see what's new, filtering out the jewelry since it drives me batty to see the same sellers listing mass amounts. This is what I dug up from just the past two days.
