  1. I love the Steampink week button! Loads of great prizes to be won!!

  2. Yay!! We are getting closer and closer to board the train! Can't wait! Packing is one of my favourite things to do before travelling, I love the planning!

    I will definitely bring a parasol, silk gloves (chic and practical when you don't want to leave fingerprints), stockings, telescope and my pocketwatch, wouldn't want to miss the departure!

  3. I agree with fredamans - the SteamPink week graphic is gorgeous! Can't wait for it to start...

  4. Again another great week full of suprises! In my bag there would be at least one book, so I can read it on the train! :)

  5. Beautiful!!! I must confess that I, too, eagerly anticipate the departure of SteamPink train and shall be boarding per schedule.

    I do hope the weather will be pleasant for travel - but should it turn inclement, I am rather excited at the marvelous array of reading material Miss V has stored in her trunk for our amusement. Always considerant is our Miss V!

    As an aside, I am pleased to report that my trusty reticule is nearly packed. In addition to the standard array of accoutrements, I have inclosed Grandmama Lucille's chronoScope and a hefty packet of hypno-fly for Leggs (the little stinker!).

    Do give the other Society members my best regards. Until departure,
    Mary Ann

  6. Goggles! >_< I can't wait for the SteamPink week to come! *___* Steampunk rocks! >_<

  7. Wow! There's lots of Steampunk books I've never heard of before! Cool.
    I myself would definately need to pack a walking cane with a hidden dagger or rapier.

  8. Avalon Revisited looks good! My trunk is full of books I have to read. I'm, also, packing my handy parasol and my dirigible license.

  9. Ah, pretty button~ SteamPink week looks like it'll be tons of fun, so many great looking steampunk books. :D
