Calamansi Tree harvests – Urban Gardening

 

This is our Citrus tree in front of the house, local name for this fruit is Calamansi (Calamondin) Scientific name: × Citrofortunella microcarpa. The juice tasted like lemonade with a tint of sweetness.

This is my first full harvest two months ago, extracted the juice, put in a small container and freeze for future use.

and this is the second harvest two weeks ago, did the same, extracted the juice and stored in the freezer to preserve and use anytime when not in season and bit pricey. This fruit is rich in vitamin C and can be drink as juice or use as condiments/ingredients for cooking and also a delicious dip for fried dishes. I feel so happy that after years of waiting we finally tasted the fruit (literally) of our labor specially my hubby who is into urban gardening, feels like  using a mackie srm450 speaker to express his happiness, lol…

Why buy when you can do-it-yourself (D-I-Y Project)

 

Remember this car seat that hubby turned into a sofa and now sitting at our terrace where we relax after a busy day.

And a wooden bench he made from wood scraps he bought at a surplus hardware. I’m thinking if he could make another one like the piano bench at musiciansfriend.com I saw yesterday while browsing the internet, told him the idea and he is very much willing to get his hands for new D-I-Y project at home, he’s already drawing the picture and  measurements for this new project and excited to start soon and so do I, to see how it will turn out. 🙂

Bathroom Make-over

If it’s been awhile since you’ve decorated your bathroom, it’s probably time for a few changes. Next to the kitchen, a bathroom is one of the rooms that can actually add value to your home. Even if you aren’t planning to sell in the near future, updating your bathroom can give it a bright new look that will enhance the rest of your home’s decor.

A New Coat of Paint

Of course, one of the easiest and least expensive upgrades you can do to any room is to simply add a new coat of paint. It’s amazing the difference that new paint can make. Whether you choose something bright and cheery or you opt for a neutral tone that allows you to add a splash of color with accessories, paint can make a dramatic difference in a bathroom.

Add a Vintage Style Vanity

A new vanity can definitely help to create an entirely new look for your bathroom. Today, vintage designs are extremely popular, even in the bathroom. You can find many beautiful vanities that are not only affordable, but they can also be easy to install. Factory direct bathroom vanities allow you to eliminate the middle man, so you can save money on your bathroom update. Of course, in addition to vintage designs, you’ll also find many other beautiful vanities when you shop with factory direct sellers.

Install Tile Around the Tub

While a new tub or shower installation can definitely be a nice touch, you can also make a dramatic difference by simply upgrading the tub surround. You’ll find a wonderful selection of beautiful tiles that can be installed around your bathtub. In fact, many homeowners choose to do their own tile installation, but you can also hire a professional for this project. Tile installation can sometimes be tricky, so if you’re in doubt, leave this job for an experienced installer.

Choose New Light Fixtures

Old light fixtures can immediately date your bathroom. When upgrading, be sure to look at new lights. You’ll find many beautiful lighting options at reasonable prices, and their usually easy to install, especially if you don’t have to run new wiring. From elegant wall mounted sconces to pendant lights or flush mounted ceiling lights, modern fixtures will help create the look you want for your bathroom.

With a few simple changes, you can add an entirely new look to your bathroom and take it from drab and dated to bright and modern.
