Sabi Saturday : week 4

Sabi Saturday Linkup Week 3

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 3 Roundup

First the roundup:

15 and Meowing used a wine glass in a very unique way as a glass case to protect a little cat.

Crystal and Daisy Mae’s Photo-Blogging Site shared an antique desk that’s been handed down in her family for generations.

Cactus Catz shared her mother’s flower arranging using thrift store finds of artificial flowers and a cool vase.

This week’s Sabi Saturday contribution

I thought I’d share something a bit different this time: a tutorial from you-tube on making something from the lint in your washing machine.  If you are like me, between my cats, my own hair, towels, sheets and clothes, somehow the amount of lint that comes up seems like it could create a mountain.  Of course, you could leave it outdoors for the birds during nestbuilding season.  They love it as it makes a soft lining for their nests.  However, this tutorial for making paper out of lint is another alternative.

If you’d rather make paper with something more substantive, here’s another tutorial for making paper but this time with denim. At the end, he showed off a denim top hat that he made.


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.

  1. Dryer lint is a great fire starter, too…we use it to start fires in our outdoor fire pit. I have made paper on and off over many years and dryer lint was so-so for me as far as results…it does provide fiber to bind the fibers together, but coloration and texture were were an issue.

    1. I was thinking since it looks kind of thick, that it would make a good journal or bookcover rather than inner pages. If I do it. I have a lot of lint but I think I’d want to get a used blender for this because I don’t see myself using the blender again for smoothies and soups afterwards.

  2. Oh wow, I never thought of making anything from lint from the washing machine, let alone paper! Where’d she ever come up with that idea?!
    Have a lovely weekend xx

  3. That is a great idea. We have plenty of dryer lint 🙂 Thanks for hosting. Have a great day!
