Steampunk or Theatrical Victorian? That is the question!

It has been awhile, hasn't it. Since last I posted, I've had another birthday, Thanksgiving and Christmas. And the New Year is approaching very quickly!

I was talking with some friends and looking at jewelry on
Etsy when I ran across a necklace that was titled "Steampunk". Well, I've looked at steampunk and this didn't look steampunk to me. So........ I asked my friends (one who actually is into steampunk) and was told, no, this wasn't steampunk.

Another friend piped up and called it "Theatrical Victorian". Well, I think she just coined a new search phrase. I think that term fits the piece to a "T". Wish I had thought it up! And, I wish I could remember where I saw the gorgeous necklace!!!

Another phrase she used was "as a pink plastic 80's watebasket is to shabby chic". I was about rolling!

Look for more fun things in the coming year!
