I'M BIMBELLING HERE..........??? you might ask.....what is bimbelling?  Came across this word somewhere in my reading.  It is akin to putzing or puttering around one's home or property.  I'm ALWAYS doing that.

Thought I would share my  latest adventure into the bimbelling world...covered Brad's dad's old bench in an old scarf I have had for years.  While I was at it I decided to also cover an old cream lampshade with the same fabric.  

We also hired a friend to help us hang this gigantic mirror that has been sitting on our floor for the last four years.

Little projects being completed with little or no cost to us.

Next on the list:

This pillow remade with fabric from an old tote that was falling apart.

While I was at it, I used the pom poms on the tote to embellish a favorite jacket..

Also used a strip of the African print on the edge of the pillow above.

Added part of an old scarf to a Euro Sham on our bed to fluff up the room a little.

Used the rest of the old  scarf to cover the front of a little pillow on this chair.

Have not sewed this piece yet but I will get to it soon....and little altered art piece.

Used the same fabric from the tote purse...stuck it in an old frame and added a small piece of an old  beaded vest I had in my stash.

All in all it has been a very creative time around here with my "bimbelling".

Hope you enjoyed my little treasures.  I've been trying to do at least one creative thing every day.  It is my time for myself.  Hopefully all of you are doing some "bimbelling" of your own.

Stay well...
