    http://www.etsy.com/listing/59042482...-hat-or-sewing I made this Cog and Clock hatbox about a week ago!

    A lot of the stuff in my shop is steampunk inspired. I love the genre! I don't dress that way, but I aspire to have at least one entire room steam-ified. Maybe a study...hmmmm.....
    If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family anatidae on our hands.

    Hah....no, apparently not. I tried starting a thread on Steampunk a year or two ago, but it never really took off.

    I haz this corset (in different colors)

    ...and I think I could rock it out lady botanist style with this eminently practical skirt, and add a (small) detachable bustle.


    ...check out the steampunk botanist

    ...and here's another one
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."

    Thanks to all for the education. As one of the older generation, I had no idea what steampunk was until I found this thread. I've seen and heard the term, but was basically clueless.
