Sabi Saturday, Week 12

Sabi Saturday, Week 12

Sabi Saturday Linkup Week 12

So the Sabi Saturday blog hop is open for the whole week where we share. Add your link up at the bottom of the post.

  • the vintage/antique items handed down or we “rescue” from garage sales and thrift stores so they don’t end up in a trash bin
  • items we’ve upcycled instead of throwing them away
  • items we’ve repaired in a transformative way to make them more beautiful or cooler than before
  • process or tutorials on how we upcycled or repaired something to make something new, more beautiful, or cooler
  • the main idea is showing how we treasure or reuse or creatively transform things that have some history to them, may be a bit worn but nevertheless are still useful/beautiful and often have character.

Sabi Saturday Linkup Week 11 Roundup

First the roundup:

15 and Meowing shared her great aunt’s Green Stamp Catalog from Fall/Winter 1948-1949. Her collection from her great aunt is pretty cool.

teleportingweena presented her dad’s Boy Scout Handbook  signed and dated 1937. That must hold a lot of memories.

Cactus Catz photographed the old door at Mission San Xavier del Bac, the oldest building built by Europeans in Arizona.

This week’s Sabi Saturday contribution

I saw this cool video you You-tube about how to make paper out of corn husk.  My corn is still growing although it’s not growing very tall so not sure what’s going to happen there.  Remember I said I just planted the cob and it grew? I decided not to try to seperate the plants because I’d probably kill them trying to do that.  Now it’s just crossing my fingers that a few might survive.    At least with this Storm Castle video by epicfantasy, I realize that even if I don’t get corn, I can maybe make paper out of the leaves. If you like DIY stuff, epicfantasy puts out a video regularly on his Storm Castle you-tube channel. His tutorials range quite a bit in historical eras from how to make a sword to making a telescope. He has a bonsai tutorial I plan to watch later.


He also made another video for beginners on how to make paper and it does look pretty easy.  I like his accent.  It reminds me of my aunt in Lowell, Massachusetts. He is very DIY so shows you how to create everything needed.

This is another tutorial; this time by PaperAlice.  I love it because she uses junk mail as the base for making her handmade paper as well as flowers (petunias from her garden) or herbs or whatever you have. It is a promotional video so the last third she talks about some papermaking kits you can buy from her store PaperAlice.


You can use the Amazon search bar to do any search at Amazon. Today I searched for “papermaking”.

  1. That is a great idea. You have an Aunt in Lowell? I live about an hour and a half from there. I will post mine on Sunday. Thanks for hosting. Have a nice weekend.
