Egg & Nest Inspired Crafts & Recipes -- A Little Birdie Told Me...No. 15

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.


If you've visited Rook No. 17 once
or twice, you've probably noticed
I have an appreciation for bird metaphors
and nest inspired imagery...


Here are some of the highlights
of what was hatched last week...

shared a lovely little project
featuring eggs decorated with buttons,
vintage lace and bric-a-brac.


Beverly from Flamingo Toes
has a simple and elegant tutorial
for making these exquisite Rosette Nest Rings.


Take a trip to Chez George on the Rue de Mail in Paris
with her recipe for Salade Frisee
(she also shares the secret to perfect poached eggs) 


Whipped up some eggs, artichoke hearts, and Parmesan
for this delicious and healthy frittata.


Speaking of eggs,
You can find the recipe for my
Robins' Egg Truffles
being featured at the 
Spring Fling this week
at Mine For the Making.
Thank you Kara!
