We covered Bruce and Melanie Rosenbaum’s (Sharon, MA) amazing Victorian/ steampunk-inspired home previously. They now have a computer set-up worthy of the other brass-encrusted, Nemo-esque insanity of the rest of their interior. I love the little touches, such as the mini-digital LCD picture frames that cycle through pics of family and friends, the “wind-up” thumbdrive, and the bellows-camera-encased webcam, all working.

    To cap it off, place harmonium pedals in the footwell and connect them to small dynamos to generate a 15v feed…

    Bruce does wonderful work.

    I am happy & honored that he selected a piece of mine to be included in his “office”.

    In the upper right hand corner of the first picture is a brass porthole. Inside the porthole is my “Pirate Airship Revenge” a brooch I made of pewter, brass and other materials. Bruce purchased it a few months back. He told me that its permanent home would be in this porthole, except for the times that he is wearing it.

    There is a story that goes with this airship. To learn about it, go to my blog:
    and scroll down to the heading:
    “Then the Pirates struck back by taking to the skys: Pirate Airship “Revenge” brooch pin”
