Steam Punk Style

I was at an antique tractor show this weekend and was checking out some of the vendor areas.  I'm always drawn to old implements and vintage tools.  Weathered, worn and rusty patina items always grab my attention.  After reading an article about Steam-punk design, I have been on a mission to employ some of its character into my home.  In many ways I already do this but I especially wanted some type of cog or sprocket element, typical of the style.  An old fly-wheel for $10.00 was my purchase.  It is my pseudo-Restoration Hardware decor item.



  1. Only $10! What a steal. I love it. Ann

  2. Great way to introduce some industrial pieces into your home. Love this type of thing and as a jewelry designer, when I saw your piece immediately my mind was racing as to what a great base this would make for a jewelry display. :)
    Thanks for sharing.

  3. So classice! Love it! Punk style indeed! Anyway nice post and keep up the good work.

  4. Thanks to all for stopping and commenting on this piece. I'm rather loving it too! Perhaps the first of many more "steampunk" pieces to come!

  5. I love the concept and the design. So cute and chic!

  6. I want to have this in our house! Thanks for posting..


Show me some love! I always enjoy your feedback and read each and every message!
