Monday Social
is a social gathering of friends where we connect with others by visiting them 
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 

Eilis from My Heart Lives Here

This week I styled our family room mantel for March

and shared my table setting for a recent book club meeting.

I think I'm in a green mood.  Or maybe it's a spring mood.

Whatever it is, I seem to be pulled toward flower creations this week.

Katie at Let's Add Sprinkles share this lovely vignette.

Judith at Botanic Bleu shared this gorgeous centerpiece.

Let's get to the features.


Sarah Pinned her beautiful redbud centerpiece.  What a happy spring table she created.


Sheila at MyKentuckyLiving shared some amazing faux flowers.


Penny at Penny's Vintage Home offered a great tutorial for turning a yard sale cake pan into this beautiful birch bark centerpiece.

Debby Goes Shabby shared a great bucket she found at Goodwill.  I can't believe her flowers aren't fresh, can you?

We'd love to see more Instagram and Pinterest guests at Monday Social.

Keep sharing and tell your friends.
