Special Anniversary Post

Our Wedding Anniversary is tomorrow, November 2nd, and it also marks our second year with Tilley.
Sense would dictate that I would post something not today, but on the big day, or at least about the big day.  Of course sometimes I don't make sense, but read on and I guarantee it will all make sense in the end....did that make any sense....any way....

I'm posting now because our special friends have made today their Wedding day! 

Congratulations to Shane and Brynn!

What, you may ask, has this got to do with our work on Tilley.  Well, Brynn put a little idea in Shane's head and he made us a little steampunk something .....

Say hello to our little friend.  Shane knit us a Squid! Our squid was slated to go into our steampunk library, but they gave him to us while camping, and we love him so much hanging around in Tilley that he is staying there to protect our trailer from invaders....and air kraken! 

Who wouldn't want a squid defense system?!  And such a cute one too.

We're also celebrating another wonderful Tilley related event today.  An article published in the Steampunk Chronicle about the beginning of our beautiful relationship with Tilley.  You can read it HERE

It's been a wonderful and auspicious day for our friends, ourselves and our fabulous Tilley!


  1. *happy clap* for great friends, a FRABOUS lil' Squid...and to many more of your anniversaries...you both are an inspiration to many, including ourselves...may we aspire to acquire our own anniversary little piece of escapism in the future as Tilley has brought to you both!! xoxo

  2. Just found your blog tonight; and what a wonderful first post to read! Happy anniversary to the two of you from Darkest Saskatchewan.

  3. Happy Anniversary and what a great gift a knitted squid.

    I want one!


  4. seems to me too late To congratulate you, but at least I am now, today, this hour I say CONGRATULATIONS to you who are always happy in this life, thank you for your post very interesting, for the future I'll be back here

  5. Dear Countess Lenora and Pat G.,
    Forgive my boldness at just writing to you, but I will be starting the nuts and bolts reno of a 1964 Yellowstone travel trailer late winter / early spring. (I've already started the "buying stuff for the reno" part of things!) I knew I wanted a Victorian theme, and during my research came across Steampunk, which fits my personality like a glove. (My family always insisted I was born 100 years too late). I am absolutely beyond words to have found your blog - you are doing what I want to do! Except that mine will have more of the frilly geegaws and gingerbread trim. May I be so bold as to ask if it were all right for me to ask you questions as they arise for me? And might you know of others who have either completed, or are working on, steampunking their travel trailers? Also, since I am new at steampunk, what could you recommend for reading material (sort of Steampunk 101) so that I can learn the manners and morals of the movement.

    I congratulate you most heartily on your beautiful Tilley! I hope my Miss Rose ends up as gorgeous!

    Thank you,
    Lady Lily Hazel LaFond
    aka Lynn Chebanyuk

  6. Thanks everyone for all the lovely comments.

    Lynn, sorry for the late response, but you are more than welcome to ask questions and we promise to check for them and answer you as soon as possible.

    You can find out a lot about steampunk on Wikipedia!

    We look forward to hearing more about your work on Miss Rose.

    Cheers, Lee Ann and Pat
