Monday Social
is a social gathering of friends where we connect with others by visiting them on 

Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, or a Blog.  

That's right, you do not have to write a blog to participate in Monday Socials.
You can also link photos from Instagram, Facebook, or Pinterest.

Find the addresses for your friends' sites, and 
link your addresses for friends to find. 


*****

Each Sunday at 4:00 p.m. party goers link up photos from one of four sites, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and/or a Blog.  

Old-fashioned socials were held on/in lawns, porches, parlors, churches... where friends mixed, mingled, and shared their lives... and exchanged their calling cards that gave their names and contact information. 

Monday Social is a 21st century social where we exchange our calling cards (link our URL addresses) for Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and a Blog.

The hostess this week is 

Katie Mansfield of Let's Add Sprinkles

This week I shared some Christmas inspiration,


an abandoned home,


and some DIY disasters.



Thanks for joining us for Monday Social #4.
We had a wonderful time visiting your links last week.
One quick tip...
Link your specific PHOTO not just your general social media site.

Let's get to the features.

Pinterest

Sarah at Hyacinths for the soul shared her brown transferware. 
It makes me long to pull mine out. 



Blog

This back porch shared by Shannon at Belle Bleu is just so pretty. 
I love the throw, the pillow and that pitcher of roses. Lovely! 




These rustic home fries from Celebrate Creativity look amazing and Lisa's pictures 
are amazing as well. 



This white and wood fall tablescape is just gorgeous. 
It would be perfect for any fall occasion. 
Stop by Timeless Creations to see more. 



We love your links.
Keep sharing with us and invite your friends to share their creations as well.
