I believe that Steampunk is more than just brass and watchparts. It's finding a way to combine the past and the future in an aesthetic pleasing yet still punkish way. It's living a life that looks old-fashioned, yet speaks to the future. It's taking the detritus of our modern technological society and remaking it into useful things. Join me as I search for items for my house that combine the scientific romanticism of the Victorians with our real present and imagined future.

Diving Bell. Fire Pit. One or the Other...
Heather "TikiMama" Greg sent me to this fire pit -- doesn't it look like something out of Jules Verne?
(She ended up buying a similar one at Lowe's.)

Oh my word. I need one of those... reminds me of the antique copper divers helmet my grandfather had in his back yard <3
