Sabi Saturday Linkup Week 14

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 13 Roundup

First the roundup:

15 and Meowing repurposed a screen door to use indoors to seperate cats. Sounds like a great idea!

teleportingweena showed a cool vintage coffee pot and egg poacher and they still work!

Crystal and Daisy Mae shared an old Eagle wood carving.

SketchingWord experimented with painting on newspaper, found some things for a collage including a book with the library card in the back from 1946.  Do you remember when you had to sign a book out instead of dipping it under a scanner?

Cactus Catz photographed found art benches with vintage truck tailgates.

This week’s Sabi Saturday contribution

I love quilts! It’s one of the best ways people have of repurposing scraps.  Of course, nowadays, people will buy scraps instead of using old fabric to create their vision.  Quilts can be beautiful, share family stories, and hide secrets. I think they are pretty amazing.

for Quilts for a Cause

I saw this at the Tucson Botanical Gardens.  I love how the strips seamlessly flow together. The quilt was sold for $525.  Quilts for a Cause said they are “Sewing a Cure: Since our first auction in 2003 we have raised over $860,000 and donated 95% of proceeds to Tucson-area organizations in support of research, training, and assistance for uninsured and under-insured women.”

 



You can use the Amazon search bar to do any search at Amazon. Today I searched for “quilts”. I also limited the category to books. You can change it back to “all” categories or any category you wish.

    1. I agree the quilts were lovely. It’s so great that people put in so much time to make lovely quilts to raise money.

  2. Handmade quilts are so wonderful! I love the ones that use scraps of fabric from people in a family. I have two, one from each grandmother, that they gave to me. I’ve made a few quilt tops, myself, but never got around to finishing them. 🙂

    1. I love the ones from family scraps too. When you finish the quilt tops, do post them. I’d love to see them!
