The hostess this week is 

Judith at Botanic Bleu 


My post this week in

French Design on Friday,  

is about vintage French aprons found at Paris flea markets.

Each Friday I share a photo(s) taken in France and show how to translate that look to create a

French-inspired garden and home.


Here's a peek at what the other two Monday Social hostesses shared this week. 

Eilis at My Heart Lives Here is getting her daughter's bedroom ready for her to use 
this summer and fall when she does her student teaching. 
Eilis is using repurposed existing furniture like the newly painted blue stool.  

Katie at Let's Add Sprinkles had a whirlwind trip to New York City that included 
sightseeing, visiting her son, and meeting another blogger, Ms. Toody Good Shoes.  

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.  

Thanks for joining us last week for Monday Social. 
We had a wonderful time visiting your links that you shared.

One quick reminder... 
Link YOUR specific PHOTO not just your general social media site. 

This week's features reflect 

Spring is the season for rebirth and renewal... 

Penny at Penny's Vintage Home repurposed an old settee into a fern holder.  

Shannon at Belle Bleu Interiors repurposed old charger plates by decoupaging them 
with some fabric she had on hand. 

Instagram: Our French Oasis captured two nesting storks 
during stork breeding season in France.

Pinterest: Sarah at Hyacinths for the Soul repurposed brown and white transferware 
into caddies to display her collection of Mother of Pearl flatware. 

See all these features on our

Pinterest board, Monday Social Features.
