Monday Social is a gathering of friends to share the latest on our pages at our 

Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Blog sites. 

Judith at Botanic Bleu is our hostess this week. 


MAY is flying by... almost half way through... and we have been busy, busy, busy. 

Judith has new floors in the living room, kitchen, and half-bath. 
What a big job, big clean-up, and big DIFFERENCE. 

Katie has new furniture in Bill's man cave. 
Check out their new Farmhouse Media Center. 

Eilis has a new part-time job as a substitute teacher for preschoolers until the end of the school year. 
What an exciting way to spend May, but without much free time.  

Last Week's 

Fair Meadow Place set a beautiful table with roses for Mother's Day. 
Each place setting has a rose tucked into a napkin. 
What a wonderful way to tell each guest, "You are special." 

The Boondocks Blog highlights its reader's favorite FACEBOOK photos each month. 
I can see why this Greek beach scene was one of the favorites in April. 

Hyacinths for the Soul shared her favorite rocker on PINTEREST. 
I am not sure how Sarah ever has time to rock since she is such a faithful blog reader 
who leaves the most thoughtful comments on each post all across the internet.  

My Kentucky Living captured a peaceful rainy day at her house that 
illustrates the beauty of her INSTAGRAM photos. 
Sheila enjoys experimenting with photography and has a real knack for it. 

Thank you to everyone for joining 
Monday Social. 
Each week is filled with inspiration, great ideas, beautiful photography, and southern friendliness. 

Remember you can link photos from Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and your blog. 
To be featured a photo must be YOUR photo. 

Do you need help linking photos from Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram? 
See Monday Social for help or send one of us an email. 
We would love to help you. 

See this week's FEATURES at our 

Blogger TIP

Not only are linky parties great places to find new friends, 
they are also a great way to connect your blog with other blogs. 
Did you know that page ranking in browser searches includes 
the number of incoming links and outgoing links to a site? 

No? Me either, until I read it in Kim Six's book titled Demystifying SEO

How about giving one another a special Mother's Day gift by including 
a link in one of your blog posts to one of the links in this week's Monday Social party? 
A link doesn't require permission, but including a photo does. 
HOWEVER, letting the person know you are including a link to her/his site 
will probably be a highlight of her/his day.
