One World, One Heart 2011

Welcome to my blog!  I'm Pat, a lifelong New Yorker who loves to learn new things about my city and share them on my blog. I am participating in the One World One Heart event and I'd like to introduce myself to all who are visiting me for the first time.  I love taking photographs, and researching facts about all the places and events I visit in New York City, and also the many places I travel to in the United States and all around the world. My blog's name means a "Thousand Favorite Flowers" in Italian, and after having written almost 600 blog posts I feel like I have collected a beautiful blog bouquet about my life in New York. I hope you will find something of interest here, whether you hope to visit New York City one day or are curious to know more about it.

To thank you for visiting me during the One World One Heart event I'm giving away two prizes with artwork by a mixed media artist I admire, Kelly Rae Roberts. One is an illustrated journal, and the second is a stationery folio.

 The journal is 9 x7 with lots of blank pages to record your thoughts and dreams or blog ideas!

The stationery folio features eight correspondence cards, eight folded notes, and sixteen matching envelopes with twenty coordinating seals.

One World One Heart is a worldwide event that gives all those who blog a chance to meet and mingle and form connections with those they may not have otherwise met from all over the world. In the past 4 years this event has grown to over 1,000 participants with lasting friendships. It is the fifth and final year of One World One Heart and I'm so happy to be able to participate this year!

To see a list of other participants click here: OWOH

In keeping with the rules of One World, One Heart this give away is open to bloggers worldwide. All you have to do is a leave a comment on my blog that will allow me to visit your blog in return and also as a way to contact you if you win. The winner will be drawn on February 17, 2011, by my using the random number generator on  I will announce the winner on my blog and I will also e-mail you, so please make sure if your blog does not have an e-mail contact that you leave your e-mail address in your comment here on my blog . Thanks! 
"A friend is a present you give yourself "
~ Robert Louis Stevenson
I'm looking forward to visiting your blog!

Update February 17, 2011! Announcing the winner!

I had a total of 236 comments to my One World, One Heart give away post.  Using the random  generator at number 73 came out.  I counted to number 73, checking it twice, and the winner is Mary Lee of the blog Merrilymarylee's Weblog!  Congratulations Mary Lee!

The One World One Heart event was lots of fun!  I visited so many wonderful blogs and was impressed by everyone's beautiful artwork and your lovely blogs.  I will continue to visit the links on Lisa's group page at OWOH as long as they are available, and I encourage all who read this to do the same as you will be very impressed by all the talent in the Blog community.

Thank you Lisa for organizing this wonderful event for the last five years! I look forward to participating in your new One World One Art event next year!

This is such a nice thing to do, Pat, and I think it sounds like a great meme.

Since I'm not doing the meme, I don't think it's fair for me to put my name in the hopper, but those are some neat treasures!

Hi Pat, I like what you have to say.
I clicked on BlogHer button. Very interesting, I've had the same feelings written about "Where Women Create" Really? I joined the Flikr group. I'd like to learn more about Blog Her, I'll have to go back. I signed up as a follower. I'd love to win your prize, I do love her art.

New Yorkers really exist? For real? I thought they were only real in the movies... Can't imagine an entire life lived in New York, really I can't. My sweet Southern sun is too delicious, and daffodils in late February and early March shake their heads and agree with me. All that's to say HEY from down South and pleased to meet you! :-)

Deborah said...

New York is definitely on my list of places to see and I hope to visit soon. I have always enjoyed Kelly Rae Roberts work and I would love to win this giveaway. Please add me to your list and come over and visit me too. I am No. 229 on the list.

I love things that are mille fiori- I have beads and a couple of paperweights with them. They make me smile just to look at them. Your blog has a terrific name.

The journal looks wonderful and so do the cards.
Isn't OWOH a great festival- so many different forms of creativity to view and enjoy. Have fun blogging through the festival.
