Eclectic or as I would like to say E "collect" ic

Any one that knows me or has been to my house knows that I have somewhat of an eclectic style.  I do not care about fashion designers or brand names.  Most things in my house carry fond memories or have a since of comfort.  Yes, I do have a child's Windsor chair on my bath surround and a table leg as a candle stick.  I am also not a throw away person...I would like to say" re-purpose" whenever possible!

So in saying that, my latest piece was fun...kind of like scavenger hunt.  I have been wanting to create a piece with a Steampunk theme.  I began the hunt, tearing apart old watches, digging through drawers, tearing apart old jewelry, and yes, made a few purchases. I threw all the pieces out on my working table and began. I never like a piece when  the first anchor cabs go down....but when I start filling in, the piece becomes to life and by the time I am down to the last few pieces I get really excited and get the shakes.  This piece I am particularly excited about because it is so me! Here is my eclectic, Steampunk piece...or as I would like to say....
