Sabi Saturday : week 2

Sabi Saturday Linkup Week 2

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

A few people were confused about the parameters last week but I’m hoping my answers in comments cleared them up.  Crossing my fingers.

Sabi Saturday Linkup Week 1 Roundup

First the roundup:

There was a problem with the linkup ending too early and having to be restarted but as an alternative people solved the problem by leaving a direct link in the comments which also worked great.

SketchingWords shared her father’s Christmas cactus along with a haiku, which he received from his mother. She in her turn care for it.

15 and Meowing went a different route and featured her found and rescued treasured cat, Emmy, who looked like she was quirking her eyebrow at the camera.

My Slice of Mexico featured a stone mortar and pestle her mother used for many years and brought from Mexico to give to her in Canada.

Cactus Catz showed a vintage Blue Willow ewer found at a thrift store.

OfMiceandMen didn’t do a post but she shared this video in the comments about a Swedish repair and recycle mall.

This week’s Sabi Saturday contribution


I saw this outside of BICAS (Bicycle Inter-Community Art & Salvage).  The cactus is made from old bicycle parts.  They used to have a class that teaches how to recycle bicycle parts into jewelry but the artist has moved onto other endeavors.  They are currently looking for another teacher.  It would be a fun class to take, don’t you think?

If you’re in town and want to check them out, they also give classes on bike maintenance and building as well as sell inner tubes and other bike parts. They have a program where they teach kids and youth to build a bike from old bikes and when the child/teen is done, they can take the bike home with them.  It’s theirs.  You can also donate to their program if you wish even if you are not local.

  1. This explanation this week made things clearer. I was confused about things last week. I have an antique desk well my parents do that they got. might do a post on this.

    1. Well, I think the thin ones are the spokes. And I also see the rims although they straightened them. I’m not sure about most of it.
