Steampunk Libations

We picked up some of this Zeppelin Beer, and while the beer connoisseur in my house wasn't that impressed with the taste, the label design is pretty spiffy.  

I haven't tried this one yet, but Kraken Rum has an incredible label, website, store of related products (including for the home), and videos. 

Have you seen any another Steampunk libations on the shelves of your local purveyors?

Reinventions at Thomasville

I've got a special surprise today -- Elisa Johnson is a reader who has an eagle eye for steampunk finds; today we have a post she wrote on one of her recent finds.

Ladies and Gents, I think we may have hit the mainstream.  Shocked and pleased to see Thomasville’s new line called  Reinventions.

The line must be targeted right as us with a name like “Boulton and Watt Flip top Sofa Table”
It’s a 36x60x20 sofa table by day but can be completely altered to become a quaint dining table for 4 at night.
Apprentice Adjustable Activity Table transforms from 20” high coffee table to a 30” high breakfast table. 

My personal favorite is the “Reliance Pharmacy” which would make a fabulous Cabinet of Curiosities or My New Bar.

Finds from Cost Plus World Market

Our Aesthetic is trickling down to some of the more affordable retailers -- Ingrid at GreyShade Estate pointed out the Aiden line at World Market, and while I was browsing there I also found their Campaign line.  Check out the finds below.

Steampunk Floral Arrangements!

Aren't these great?  They are from a steampunk wedding for Stacey and Eric that Women of Weddings put on.  See more pictures.

Cement Factory turned Live/Work Space

Showing that this industrial/traditional blend is not new, Yatzer blog features an old cement factory turned architect Ricardo Bofill's office and residence in Madrid that dates to 1975.

There are many more pictures at the original post.

Thanks, Elisabeth, for pointing this out.

Maker on Wheels

You know Roger Woods and Klockwerks, right?  He was steampunk before steampunk even was...  Here's a great video his assistant Bryan Belanger made of Roger making one of his klocks on wheels.  (I *love* the soundtrack.)
