Souvenirs from the Philippines

I visited the Philippines for the first time last month.  The older I get, the more I want to learn about my heritage and stay connected with it. One of the best parts of the trip was shopping for local goods. I wanted to take a piece of the motherland back home with me. Every store sold beautiful woven goods, acacia wood dinnerware, wooden and pearl accessories and had a refreshing mix of neutral and bright colors. And... I especially loved how affordable everything was. 

Here's some of the things I brought back from my trip:

 Philippine finds: Fox cell phone purse, woven trivets, capiz shell trivets, wooden necklace, local print, woven throw blanket, acacia wood spoon, doppio cups, wooden bracelet, snakeskin clutch, cookbook
