    All my Steampunk pieces sold today to an art gallery in Manhattan except for two fish that I wanted to keep for myself. I am very happy that I don't have to move them to my new home and I can start building new ones as now I have an outlet and the gallery will take whatever I make. A couple of pieces almost sold as I was bringing them into the gallery as two people wanted them even before they priced them so I am happier than my wildest dreams. Well, maybe not my wildest dreams as that would need a flounder, bowling pin, left rear tire from a 1957 Studebaker and a piece of meat loaf from Lady GaGa's dress. :rolleyes:

    Here is my wife with one of my pieces on the counter in the Gallery. She is my spokesmodel. :D

    I almost finished the 3 lights for over the Island in my new Island kitchen. These are wine barrel hoop lights.
    This is one of them I built for a few bucks.

    This is one that sells for $120.00
    I will start on my wine barrel hoop dining room light.

    I am working on 3 projects at once, which is a mistake. I have two lamps and a SteamPunk Airship that I am kind of excited about because I never built one before.
    That phone box with the brass bells will be a lamp. I ordered the ear piece and when you lift the ear piece, the light will come on. The crank on the right will dim it. I have not decided what to do with the other vintage box yet.

    My wife thought it needed some windows to see where they were going. I think she was right. I may put some glass in them.
