A New Linky Party Is Coming

Friday, August 19, 2016

What better way to socialize than with a party? 

We agree, no better way, and a new linky party is coming your way. 

Old fashioned socials were held in homes, in churches, as picnics, as debutante balls, and as barn dances where everyone mixed, mingled, got to know one another, and sometimes, found their soul mates. They exchanged calling cards to say who they were and where they lived. 

Today, in the 21st century, we mix, mingle, and get to know one through social media... Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and Blogs.... plus more. Our calling cards are URL addresses that tell who we are and where we live

... on the internet. 

So, how do we exchange our 21st century names and addresses? 

Would you like to share with others how to find you on your Facebook, Pinterest, Blog, and 

... the hottest ticket in town ... Instagram? 

Would you like to know where to find your internet friends' addresses for 

Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Blog?

You are invited 
to join us for our new linky party, 

Monday Social 
link ups begin September 11 @ 4:00 pm (CDT) 

Your hostesses each week are 

The best part? 

You do NOT have to write a blog to participate each week! 

That's right. You can link up your photos to Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, as well as to your Blog.  

Share your social media photos and addresses with the world so your soul mates (you know those crafty people who make silk purses from sows' ears) can find you. Find new friends each week on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, as well as your Blog. 

Think you will need help linking up? See Monday Social for directions on how to link up to our new linky party. 

Another great thing.... 

there will be GIVEAWAYS the first three weeks for the new party. 
Wait 'til you see the fun gifts! 
(Drats! I'm not allowed to win.)
Our way of saying, "Thank you," for joining our party. 

Yet, another great thing... each week's features will be shared on Monday Social Features Pinterest board, Facebook pages, Instagram, and our blogs. 

So, you are invited. Now what?
  1. Mark your calendar for every Sunday at 4:00 pm (CDT) to join the party.
  2. Get your best photos/posts ready to share with the world.... home decor, DIY, recipes, inspirational thoughts, beautiful Instagram photos, fantastic Pinterest curated boards... whatever is going on in your world. The small print... no advertising, Etsy, etc... 
  3. Spread the news about the new linky party with all your readers, followers, friends, neighbors, family... We would love for you to grab our button to share with others on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and your Blog. 

Join the party, make new friends, be inspired... 

So, are YOU going to party with us? 
Oh, I hope so.

I love these in this gray, worn look! And to think someone was dumping a set of these in the trash earlier in the season! I've rescued some pretty cool antique chairs from the trash, and I'm not ashamed to say I've kept them, restored them and now use them!!!

These are so pretty! I love the worn look with that blue and white. Such a beautiful outdoor space!

Happy day friend!
