I had a bit of extra time this week and I really wanted to play along with Haunted Design House Macabre Monday #186.  The theme is Steampunk Junk.

 A year or so ago I dropped my beloved smart phone.  I tried to fix it, but it was beyond repair. I kept the broken parts because I am a hoarder and I just knew I would have a use for my cell phone guts at some point.  Well, after a year, some tears, and a lot of money to buy a new phone, I found the perfect use for my broken phone.
