Miss Iggy Opens Her Heart To "One World One Heart" (OWOH)

MABUHAY! (That's Filipino for "Hello" and "Welcome!") Miss Igorota (Miss Iggy for short) is starting the month of hearts by joining Lisa Swifka's "One World One Heart Event," (its Fifth & Final run) a worldwide blog "open house" of sorts which lets bloggers get to know each other and reward a lucky commenter with a "door prize"! ♥

Miss Iggy sunbathing by the shores of Pilar, Capiz, Philippines (May 2010)

Miss Igorota is a native doll from the Northern highlands of the Philippines handcrafted as a souvenir. She is a cloth doll likeness of the Igorot people in the northern region of the island of Luzon. She comes from a Strawberry Farm! She is a "travel mascot" toted by different Filipina women in different locations around the world! From only two bloggers back in 2008, the "Sisterhood of the Traveling Igorota" has grown to nine (and very soon, ten!), sharing each sister's travels through the eyes of this little doll. To learn more about the story of our blog, please click here!

Miss Iggy is spreading the strawberry love to you with this handcrafted bracelet made in the Philippines. It's made from polished coconut shell (how eco-friendly and fashionable is that?) handpainted with the word "Philippines" and pretty pink hibiscus flowers, which are known as "gumamela" flowers in Filipino. This bracelet is a little piece of tropical treasure that our country's 7,107 islands can offer you! Miss Iggy invites you to try your luck at winning this trinket simply by leaving a comment on this post and indicating a valid email address where you can be reached. No obligation whatsoever for you to bookmark or follow our blog! (Because blog love shouldn't be forced!)


We thank you for landing on our little nook on the net and hope that you drop by every now and then to see where we've been! ♥

OWOH runs from January 30-Feb. 17, 2011, at the end of which one winner will be chosen by random from the list of comments received on this post. ANYONE can join this giveaway. Only one comment/entry per person/email address. The list of other lovely OWOH participants can be viewed HERE.
