Before we get to the linky party, here are a couple of reminders for 
upcoming Holiday Tours.


 Carole of Garden Up Green is hosting a blog hop November 28, 2016,
that shares heartfelt Christmas memories of living in the country.

Botanic Bleu's memory of country Christmas trees will give you
some ideas for decorating on a shoestring budget.




Seeing houses decorated for the holidays is one of my favorite things to do each year. 
Katie of Let's Add Sprinkles is hosting a blog tour December 5-7, 2016, 
in which bloggers share their homes decorated for Christmas. 
Botanic Bleu's home will be decorated with  lots of white and French inspiration.  


Now, here's Eilis....


The hostess this week is 

Eilis at My Heart Lives Here



 This week I shared  my Thanksgiving centerpiece.  I'm very grateful for all the family and friends we've had at our house over the holiday.  



As a result, things are a little behind schedule, but in a happy way. I'm frantically working on Christmas decorating and hope to share that soon.

Our wonderful Pinterest board of  Monday Social Features is growing every week.

Now, for this week's linking party...



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.


*****
Thanks for joining us last week for Monday Social.
We had a wonderful time visiting your links that you shared.
One quick tip...
