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.

And Boots 
No, I can't afford handmade shoes or boots either, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate the beauty.

A Story Tokyo

Watch It 
All pieces by AStoryTokyo
I absolutely love these watches designed and made by Kouhei Yanai and Mari Goto. They have the perfect mix of beauty and that raw, handmade feeling that is so very steampunk. Just beautiful.

I ran across this shop yesterday and it's full of these great images as well as some beautiful pendants in a different theme. Definitely worth a look.

In Time
Perhaps you like your time machines more police box shaped, or maybe dolorean, but the classic look is so much more steampunk.
