Spring Crafts and Recipes -- A Little Birdie Told Me...#13

Welcome to 
"A Little Birdie Told Me..." Tuesday!

If you're here to share a craft, recipe or project post,
you'll find the linky and the specifics on how to 
join the party after the features below.

"Hello...Month of March...MGM called...they want their lion back!"

It is said that "March comes in like a lion...."  Frankly, the lion has worn out his welcome.  I've kindly asked him to leave, but I'm feeling doubtful that a lamb-like exit is in the forecast. If anything, I imagine March will "go out" like a rabid wolverine, claws flailing wildly at the door jamb.  

"Why so eager to move on?  April Showers..." you warn.  Pshaw..already had 'em -- in spades (bucketfuls, actually). It's been a fast-paced, hectic, and very wet month.  

Fortunately, despite my sporadic posting and utter lack of online party-going, you've stuck by me -- Thank you! And last week's "A Little Birdie Told Me..." was just the thing to lighten my soggy spirits -- A Cheerful, Sunny Beam of Spring Sunshine!  

Last week,
A Little Birdie Told Me...

Welcome Spring Yellow

Carol of "The Answer Is Chocolate" created a lovely Spring printable for you to download for free HERE.
Steph of The Silly Pearl shared a tutorial for making this fun and colorful fabric necklace.
Amanda of House Revivals transformed a Goodwill lamp and pair of funky pants into a lamp that would make the folks at Anthropologie swoon!  
Asparagus, Spinach, chicken and crumbled bacon frolic with Linguine and Italian cheeses in the 
Spring Gorgonzola Pasta from Cindy at
Everyday Insanity.
If it's not quite outdoor cooking weather yet in your neighborhood, Alex of A Moderate Life has just the remedy for when April showers soggy your BBQ ambitions with her Easy Barbecue Beef on a Bun.
And what would a Spring party be without some sweet, sweet flowers?  Amber of BARBwired shows how to create a sunny little Cake Pop Bouquet.
