Steampunk, Western, UrbEx Etsy Shop!

Backroads Treasures is my very dear friend, co-hunter and co-author, Julie's Etsy shop. What's so totally cool about it is that she not only uses her photography, but also found items from abandoned sites we've explored together. She has an influence that is part western, part steampunk, and a tiny dash of hippie. I'm so proud of my sis for so many things from being a big-hearted, easygoing, intelligent, talented photographer and writer, blogger and artisan.

Wolf tooth and key--fantastic combo!

This one is so fascinating and I can see a bit of the hippie influence in it--just a tad.

If I know my buddy, this necklace above was inspired by Josh Gates.

This wall hanging not only has a freaking awesome pic, but a nicely placed rusted knob. Incorporating items at sites she takes photos is a touch that makes her things so historic and have a feel that exudes from them with a very nostalgic energy.


  1. Love them all. I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the links.

  2. Once again, thank you for mentioning my shop. My stuff is bizarre but it fits with my blog and me.

  3. Sis, your things are amazing! Every one of them, I can think of the place we went. They are Ghost Hunting Theories and Above-the-Norm archaeological pieces. Haha.
