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 Social.
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 from Let's Add Sprinkles




Judith shared her affinity for French lanterns.


I shared the saga of my brown transferware collection.


We have all been busy getting ready for a spring blog tour.


Please come back tomorrow to see some wonderful blogs.

Thanks for joining us for Monday Social.
I had a wonderful time visiting your links last week.
Let me discuss some of the other social media platforms for a minute.
In this day of cross branding, multiple media platforms are essential.
I hope that by linking to Monday Social you gain followers to your Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest accounts.
Make sure your settings aren't set to private.
Just a quick tip for Facebook.
Make sure you grab the URL for the specific Facebook post not your general Facebook page.
Same is true for Pinterest.
Please make sure it is your own photo and not a photo that is copyright protected.
I hope that helps.
Feel free to message one of us if you have questions.

Let's get to the features.

Etched in Colloquy shared her blue and white tablescape with blue and white Easter eggs.
I know blue and white fans will love this one.


Gorgeous!

American Honey Home shared this quick and easy cobbler recipe. It looks pretty healthy to me too.



Finally, I'd like to introduce a new blog to you.
Barbara has been blogging since January. Pop over and follow Fair Meadow Place.
Please give her a great blogging community welcome.


I love this darling tool box.

I love the links!
Keep sharing and tell your friends.
