Sabi Saturday, Week 23

Sabi Saturday Linkup Week 23

Show how you love, treasure, reuse or creatively transform things that may be a bit worn but nevertheless is still useful/beautiful and have character or history.

As you know while I post on Saturdays, the blog hop is open for the whole week so feel free to share any time during the week. Add your link at the bottom of the post. I do moderate the links to avoid spam so it may take up to 24 hours for the link to show.

  • 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

Sabi Saturday Linkup Week 22 Roundup

First the roundup of 2020 from Week 22 posted the week of February 29, 2020:

Cactus Catz also shared a great re-use of mardi-gras beads and hats.

This week’s my Sabi Saturday contribution:

On a Wordless Wednesday post, I had shared a view of the murals at closed New Orleans thrift store.  Here is view of a window into the Bargain Center, 3200 Dauphine St, New Orleans. You can see why I thought the store was intriguing both in and out.  A Chuck Berry 78? I can’t remember the last time I’d seen a 78.  Maybe a decade?  Even 45s are getting to be rare.  I lost my stack in my last move. And I love mannequin heads with funky hats or wigs. So fun! The doll looks like she is about to sing into the Japanese microphone with the bikini-clad statue reminding me of the 1960s beach musicals with Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon.  Remember the Mickey Mouse show?

Linking up

You can choose to do a pingback or add your link in the Mr. Linkys. Also feel free to leave a link in comments. The advantage to Mr. Linkys is that it can feature an image from your post. Please tag your post Sabi Saturday.

Note: Here are some quick instructions if you need a little help with Mr. Linkys.

  • Click “Check to accept use/privacy policy (click to read)” for your url to be accepted.
  • When you hit enter, a little pop up box should come up so you can choose which thumbnail to show.
  • Once you choose your image, click done.
  • It will ask to close the window so click ok.

Give it a few minutes to do the script and resize the image and then refresh your window. You should see your link. Be aware if you’ve entered a url in a previous Mister Linkys on anybody’s blog, not just mine, it will probably automatically propagate the fields with your previous entry. Remember to change the url if you’re not doing the same post.
