Steampunk Defined

Great news: our snow storms left, after dumping like a foot of snow, & we never lost power.  Not so great news: more snow moving in Monday.  Anyway, my shop relatively new to etsy, and I was surprised to see so many items listed as steampunk.  Naturally, I googled it, which led me to wikipedia.  Steampunk is defined as the future as Victorians may have imagined it, a subgenre of sci-fi.  Mostly you will find surreal items under the steampunk category, amazing works of art.  Steambaby has this nifty monocle & oldjunkyardboutique has an ooak sci-fi pistol.  Natashamorgan created this eerie doll while urbandon has an abstract doll.  Radusport created this shirt, oldeworldcc this one.  There are literally tens of thousands results for the word “steampunk,” and each item reflects the artist’s unique view of what steampunk looks like.  With so many results, it’s easy to find a steampunk style that suits you!  Daily random nugget of knowledge: a hippo’s milk is bright pink.  Who woulda thunk?  PS be sure to visit my Facebook page!
