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.

A Favor? Nominate me for the Homies
Every year, Apartment Therapy (the grandpappy of home design blogs) sponsors a contest for the best home design blog of the year. I'm wondering, if after almost four years of posting here, if I might have enough readers to be in the running.
Besides, wouldn't it be fun to show all those minimalist modernists how the other side lives?
Here's how to do it:
1) Follow this link.
2) Register to be able to comment on Apartment Therapy.
3) Comment on the above link with the following content:
Name: The Steampunk Home
I need to be in the top 6 to make it to the next round, so the more people who add a comment, the higher the likelihood I make the actual voting.
Nominating runs until January 25th at midnight EST.

Seriously, who nominates Casa Sugar? Ugh.
Done and done.
Done! Jumping through hoops to register was totally worth it :) (That sounds sarcastic, but really isn't.)
Consider yourself voted for. When I see I have an unread post of yours in my reader, my face just lights up.
AT seems to get a lot of grumpy commenters so i'm a bit nervous about my fav blogs being featured there, but i suppose it's probably that way on any equivalently large blog-site. ah, internet !
Just started reading this blog last week and it's easily made its way to one of my must reads! When I come home from a less than fabulous day at work and find a new post here, it makes my night; consider yourself nominated.
I voted for you!!
Love love love your site!
good luck! you deserve to be there.
Done and done!
You made it to the finals!!
