Fabulous Finds This Week

Through this corner of the blog, I would like to simply share the many things and discoveries I’ve found that put a huge smile on my face. We need that from time to time. I’ve cautioned HomesCoolers on hoarding material for children’s curriculum. But there are just “great finds”, that need to be found and brought home, right?

1. Great Maps for your HomesCool Room:

I saw these in Fully Booked, BGC and posted it right away in the FB page of the Homeschoolers of the Philippines.  After a few days, one member commented that Fully Booked ran out after a foreigner purchased all in one go! So I checked in Fully Booked, Alabang Town Center and I was relieved that they still had many in stock. Php 250.00  The one right below is for younger preschoolers:)

2. This  “Too Pretty” Cupcake Kit:

For Php 135.00, how can you not buy this? The box  comes with  200 cupcake liners and 34 flag toppers in many nice colors and designs, with a bonus cupcake recipe and idea book!

I am not sure if this is the last item on stock though.

3.  Plastic Glasses that Look Like Real Glasses:

SM  says, “We’ve got it all for you”. I’ve been looking for these “breakable looking” glasses for some time.  If ever I would find them,  they would be any of the following:  too expensive, too small  or in very bright colors.  These plastic glasses were around Php 40.00 each.  They’re perfect for  a family with many children where spills and breaking come quite often.

4.  Framed Paper Cutting:

I gave this framed paper cutting from Hands Love Paper as a gift to my niece. I regretted not getting one.  I found the stall again in the recent Block Party at Makiling Park, AAVA. Php 500.00. Thanks, Ebony:)


5. Stuff from Hey Keys.   

Finally, I got an oblique pen holder for calligraphy. I met Mancy, the sweet owner of Hey Kessy.


6. Boxes from Cut the Scrap!




7.  Lovely Products from Habil Crafts

Wood and lots of green = Refreshing!



8.  Our Serendipity Find

Serendipity is defined as, “the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way.” Well, that’s exactl y how this next “find” was found. Many say we make the best Choco-Chip Cookies.  However, due to the heat in our pantry, the Nestle Sweet Sweet morsels were moist and beginning to melt. So as the chips were added to the cookie dough and mixed using an electric mixer, the entire dough became dark chocolate brown and for some reason, after baking, chewy! Oh my, my friends couldn’t stop begging for more!


9.  A Find in Raya’s Room

It all began with some used brushes with a shade of green and red lying on the sink counter.  I knew then that Raya was up to something. I entered her room and searched. This greeted me near her window:

Though she doesn't eat them, Raya loves the look of watermelons.

10.  My  “Fabulous” Wish List Find

Sometimes as mommy-teachers, we need to reward ourselves, Or maybe, I should ask for you to pause now, and call your husband (the ones we regard as the principal of our HomesCool).  Let him read this. “Hubbies, from time to time, reward your wives/ teachers of your children, with something they ‘want’. ” And these my dear fellow HomesCoolers, are my “wants” ! (Please find a way and show this to my husband.)

Heels from Kenneth Cole! Lovely!

So there, my first post in this “Fabulous Finds” category!  Hope you liked the stuff that I had shared here. Comment and let me know:)

Jeremiah 29: 12-14 Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 1You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. ‘I will be found by you,’ declares the LORD...
