I am in love



This little guy just had to be mine!! He was an ebay find and a priceless one at least to me. I have always been fascinated with wheels, gears, fun things in old metal, old metal toy parts , small old things that  move  , etc.. I call it the Orwell "Time Machine" look or "20k Leagues Under the Sea" look and then mix that with some vintage tarnished / decayed  New Orleans glitz and I am in love!!!..." But the name now for all of this is   "Steam Punk" and I thank Jane Wynn for explaining that to me. I love that name too.   And my new /old little guy is so Steam Punk  .Look to future blogs to see the items he just may dig up....
