With its vintage nostalgia and romantic imagination,
steampunk style is a way to celebrate the past
as we move into a precarious future.

A recent trip to my local opportunity shop netted a few good finds for future steampunk-style craft projects. A wooden cane, begging to be steampunked; a couple of leather belts that will make useful straps (or belts); and a wooden clock that, once deflowered, will be a perfect addition to steampunk decor. My favourite find was the vintage atlas: a hardcover book with pages large enough to get my imagination working in all sorts of ways. Keep an eye on this blog for craft project ideas featuring these and other op shop finds in the near future!
