Eilis at My Heart Lives Here

This week I shared some of the Santas that I saw at the Dallas Arboretum.

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...
Link your specific PHOTO not just your general social media site.

This week's features. 


Sarah of Hyacinth for the Soul shared a beautiful antique dough bowl decorated with greens for Christmas.


Sarah also had an adorable Elf in a cupcake on her Instagram.


Carol at Blue Sky Kitchen showed us how to make the cutest glittery gift boxes.

Deb from Manitoba Gardens shared a fun gingerbread house making party for a large group of children.

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