(My lovely daughter is the one all the way to the left)
And there started my love affair. We have several books on the subject and whenever I read a magazine or watch a show, I look for items that reflect this type of art.
(Some lovely items found on the web)
Recently on a new show on HGTV called Home Strange Home, we were enjoying this man's lovely home when what did we spy but a Steampunk Train or vehicle of some sort. We froze the screen and I remarked, "Oooo, I really like that!" Well, no sooner was it out of my mouth, but my hubby's brain started working and come Valentine's Day, all wrapped up in pretty red paper, was my very own rendition. Oh it is so lovely and made out of the coolest items. A vintage lite bulb, a whisk, parts to a lamp and a veterinarians syringe! Now how neat is that?! I know it is not everyone's cup of tea, but for me, it is the equal to a Ming Vase. :) Always, Kit
