Eilis at My Heart Lives Here



This week I shared gorgeous Christmas decorating inspiration from my visit to Paul Michael's in Canton, Texas.  After walking around this amazing store, I can hardly wait to spread some holiday cheer at our house.

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 #8.
We had a wonderful time visiting your links that you shared.
One quick tip...
Link your specific PHOTO not just your general social media site.



PINTEREST

Sarah of the blog Hyacinths for the Soul
shared a great witch collection at her girlfriend Cindy's house. 
I have definitely added it to my Halloween Pinterest board.

I just love Angelina's beautiful fall table . She used an antique kashmir shawl as a tablecloth.

Mstoodygoodshoes shared delicious Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos on IG.  
Here's the recipe.



BLOG

Bonnie of Living With Thanksgiving shared some of her amazing trip to Lucerne, Switzerland.
She also has a great new look for her blog.

We love your links.

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