A new week around the world

Happy Birthday to our very special contributor:
Buckeroomama from Hong Kong.

Bmama is a pleasure to work with because she always helps out in little ways no one would even notice.
She is kind and thoughtful and very sweet.
She definitely makes Communal Global a better place!

Wishing you a beautiful year B!

Blue Monday

I read a LOT of books - but if I feel a bit cranky or sick I always turn to magazines and books about interior design. The beautiful photos lifts my spirit every time, just like magic!

Yummy, yummy in my tummy. One of my favorite parts of helping my sister plan her wedding this summer was helping her pick the cake flavor.

We spent a wonderful afternoon in Geithoorn,Holland. It's been nicknamed "The Venice of The Netherlands" and you are able to rent boats and tour the village.
