TracyLynne Carpenter's whimsical steampunk world

TracyLynne Carpenter (rez: 7/31/2006) collects art, lives in a castle (complete with cannons), makes handsome cabs and a luxury yacht for which she is greatly admired, and listens to bossa nova.

But there is another side to TracyLynne that is fanciful and, well... playful.

Take her latest creation, a hummingbird sipping from a flower.

Touch the bird's head and... whoa! What's that in there?

Touch the bird's chest and you get to look at what makes it tick.

The deeper I go into TracyLynne's world, the more charming things I discover. Like the "Shoe House," complete with a sky observation deck.

There Was An Old Woman
There was an old woman who lived in a shoe.
She had so many children she didn't know what to do.
She gave them some broth without any bread.
She whipped them all soundly and put them to bed.

Also available in girly pink

... and the steampunk wheel chair, with all those gears turning and kickin' out smoke.

The bonus, though, is her Crabcakes and Escargot train, complete with butter and olive oil cars and trailed by a flying head of garlic, but that is too large to capture well in one or two photographs, so you will just have to go see it yourself (teleport directly from here).

Thanks to Naydee McGettigan, owner of the legendary Blue Note (teleport directly from here), for tipping us off to TracyLynne.

Tracylynne is an amazing talent!
Her imagination spans over many styles and genres and certainly cannot be captured with a few photos. For sure worth the time to take a look...the details make it well worth the adventure.
