Steampunk Songbirds by Mullanium

Steampunk Cardinal by Mullanium (BD1)

I first saw these birds years ago in a store in San Francisco. I made a point of always visiting that store whenever I was in the area just to see the gorgeous and ever changing array of songbirds. I didn’t know who made them until today when I found Mullanium.com! Below are just some of the many examples of birds on their website, but because they are decorated and perched on found objects each one is unique.

Some Steamy Home Decor from an Unexpected Place

Pier 1 is definitely not somewhere I was expecting to be blogging about, but I found some really charming metal sculptures that were shaped liked bicycles. I took the pictures a few weeks ago so you can probably still find them in stores, and definitely at the Pier 1’s website.

IMG063I also really liked this wire umbrella stand that was shaped like an umbrella, which is cute but also really smart because of how umbrellas try to fall open once they are upside down in a stand.

There were also some lovely antiqued clocks that were probably 2 feet in diameter that looked like giant pocket watches, but those pictures were on my mother’s cell phone instead 🙂

Have you ever fun across something that reminds you of Steampunk in an unexpected place?

Steampunk Engineer

I found this awesome figure (garden gnome?) from “a loft full of lead.”

A loft full of lead

This Lead Adventures Engineer is a nice steampunk figure, armed with a massive spanner and equipped with a steam powered mechanical arm.

The boiler on his back has some detailed gauges and dials, not that he can read them very easily…
