Steampunk'd in Paris

eiffel tower

I am really intrigued by the whole "steampunk" craze....it is the neatest stuff...I will be collecting some vintage hardware to start my own pieces...but in the meantime I thought we could head to Paris for a virtual steampunk trip...

I am submitting this to the Three Muses challenge this week....

Happy Wednesday!!!

I find Steampunk quite interesting; have bought tidbits here and there....sometime I might actually USE some of them! LOL!
(tho I am pretty sure they are better if they *age* first.....right???)

XXOO!!

Great piece of art!

Diane said...

You've done it again Diana! Steampunk always makes me think of London and Paris. The Eiffel Tower is sort of a steampunk icon--all that iron! Great piece!
