It seems a few of us have caught the Artist Trading Block fever.
Here's one I made that was inspired by sifting through my stash and finding this snippet of paper from g45's Steampunk Debutante.
Sometimes you hang onto things for ever and then one day, something clicks.



My husband gave me a bunch of rusty washers and I used two of them here. I do love rusty things!
The bulb in the middle is a fake one, but the others were saved from an old flash bulb camera.
I love all the squiggly metal wires inside!

Thanks, ladies!
The ball chain kind of reminded me of a bicycle chain, so I had to use it.
I love the flashbulbs, too. I wish I could find some more.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
