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 from Let's Add Sprinkles

I have been busy decorating for Christmas, crafting, taking time to savor advent and trying to get ready for a party!
I love this time of year.

Thank you for joining us for Monday Social #12.
You all have been busy!
I enjoyed visiting all of your links.
One quick tip...
Link your specific PHOTO not just your general social media site.
Make sure it is your own photo.

Let's get to the features.


Decor to Adore shares a collage of Friendly Village dinnerware on her Instagram


Sarah from Hyacinth's for the Soul shared this collection of chocolate molds. 


I was enchanted by the garland from Timeless Creations.


Pat shares some or her bottle and jar collection. 
I was totally smitten with a Christmas bottle
That graphic is amazing. 

Keep sharing your links and tell your friends about our party.
We need more Instagram and Pinterest!
