Sabi Saturday, Week 9

Sabi Saturday, Week 9

Sabi Saturday Linkup Week 9

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 8 Roundup

First the roundup:

15 and Meowing shared her childhood bunkbed and the blankets her mom crocheted.

Cactus Catz shared Casa Grande vintage neon sign park.

This week’s Sabi Saturday contribution

repurposed glass from Bottle Rocket Design

I also shared this  photo and top 2 paragraphs on Instagram today.

MaryLou and I were leaving SushiTen on Speedway on Wednesday when we saw a bunch of people setting up tables so we walked over for a gander. Turned out it was a Shop Local event with various Tucson businesses.

Anita from Bottle Rocket Design was showing her repurposed glass. She crushes bottles and mixes it in with concrete to make all kinds of things: candleholders, planters, petfood bowls and a really solid tabletop. She also repurposes coke bottles for the soy candles she makes. Pretty cool stuff. (you can see some more on her instagram @bottle_rocket_design‘s )

She even made a youtube video of the concrete and glass for a kitchen countertop.  I didn’t know Yelp did interviews but there’s a Meet the Maker article on her about how she got into it.


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.
