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.

Steampunk Chic Gaming Tables
If you game -- and there are lots of awesome looking steampunk themed RPGs out there -- check out what Laurie just sent me:
I was at PAX East this past weekend, and this company was displaying their amazing gaming tables. These tables are so amazing in person, the illustrations on their website just don't do them justice. Here's another site with a better pic, and this site gives a video tour of the booth at PAX. The Sultan table is particularly steamy. I don't even play tabletop games, but after seeing the Sultan I wanted to start just so I'd have an excuse to buy one.
Hope you enjoy!
