This will be the very first, and I hope of many to come, Senior Salon link-ups here at The Recipe Hunter

The above picture is one of our personal pictures, as will be all pictures used in the SENIOR SALON 2018.  Quote

March 19 – 23, 2018
Linkup will Start: March 19, 2018, 02:00 am and Ends: March 23, 2018, 8:00 pm PDT (Pacific Daylight Time).


I am grateful and wish to thank HADDON MUSINGS for starting this most wonderful feature.  I wish to thank Bernadette from the bottom of my ♥ for all her assistance, and I hope to carry on where she left off.  I know I will not be able to fill her shoes, but I will try my best.

We have walked our paths a long time and have a lot to offer.
Come and reveal your artistic vision.

The SENIOR SALON is dedicated to showcasing the talents of the post 9 to 5 generation. The generation who finally has time to get in touch with the right side of their brain.

The SENIOR SALON features art, music, writing, poetry, photography, creative cooking, creative fashion, and anything else that you can dream up.   Allow YOUR muse to guide you into a new creative endeavor or enhance an existing creative endeavor.

It is my pleasure to invite you once again to link your blog to mine today and reveal your artistic creations in any field: fiction writing, nonfiction, poetry, photography, painting, pottery, cooking.

In the true spirit of a salon, take this opportunity to widen your circle of blogging friends by reading some new posts along with the tried and true that you have come to love. 

I want to mention to anyone who is reading this, that you do not need a special invitation to participate. If you have a little silver in your hair, please feel free to add your link and join in the fun.

After linking to this blog, in the true spirit of a salon, please take the time to read someone else’s blog and comment and offer encouragement on their artistic endeavors.



  1. It will be much appreciated if you see your way open and will be so kind to tweet, pin, stumble, flip or share this post on Facebook once you added your link, and invite your blogging friends to also come and participate.
    Let’s be a Sharing, Inspiring, Promoting Bloggers community!
  2. Please follow me on a minimum of one (or more would be fantastic) of the following social media outlets @ 

***When participating, you automatically provide your permission that I can share your links left here at Senior Salon on any of the above listed social media outlets to showcase your post/s.

  1. how wonderful! Thought I was already following and realized I wasn’t, am now though. What a wonderful idea, will participate as much as I can, somehow I find I am busier now than I ever thought I would be… Thank you for this, Cathi (DAF)

    • Awesome, thanks for following and I look forward to your participation at the SS. Please when share the news with your followers, then we can get more silver members to share links. ♥ If you prefer you can wait for Monday’s link to be published to share.

  2. This is a wonderful idea, Esme. I’ll participate when I’m able. I’m following you on Twitter and have liked you FB page. Hugs, my friend ❤

    • Awesome, Thank you very much, I truly appreciate your following. I will hop over to your social links and check them out as well.

  3. Hello. Thanks so much for continuing this excellent resource. I only discovered it s few months ago and it had not quite gotten embedded as a habit yet, but I’m working on it. Is there a document somewhere telling newbies like me just how to maneuver in the site or is it more of a spend-more-time-and-you’ll-figure-it-out situation?

    • Hi Janet. If you follow my blog, you will get the notification each Monday as the Linkup will Start: 02:00 am and the Friday @ 8:00 pm PDT (Pacific Daylight Time), and you will be able to use the Inlinkz Blue Froggy to add your links
      Read through the post, you will find the froggy, click on it, then follow the prompts. Basically it will ask you to add the post https:// you want to showcase, enter that and voila, all done. Then click return to linkup (you should find that button as well), it will revert you to the already entered links, you click on those and read the post, leave a comment, and share as you like. Also it would be appreciated it you then share the fact that you’re connected to the SS on your blog or other social media, then your followers and other bloggers can also come and do the same. If you need any other information, please do not hesitate to ask.

  4. This is a good idea. I have already some silver hair. I suppose I can join, can I?

  5. So great of you to continue Bernadette’s work. I’ve linked in and found some great blogs that are new to me. Thanks!
