Steampunk...the next FUN thing???

OK...I have to admit that I am a BIG fan of Michael DeMeng and his style of rustic art pieces. They force you to look 'up-close' to discover all the unusual found objects added on and are great as conversation pieces. Then there is the Steampunk trend that involves taking found objects that are functional and revert or alter them to look like they are from periods past. I totally GOT the whole concept when I read the wikipedia defintion where it said "fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne". Remember 'Time Machine'?

Love this steampunk cd player! And check out Micheal's blog ...
or just google Steampunk to take a fun e-journey to all the fun sites that give an overview of the genre...Steampunk.

I think it will be the next fun thing in Mix Media groups...I know I have been on a mad search through all the piles of junk-treasures that I have stored over the about You?

Another blog friend that has a cool Lamp/Light....
