They make a clucking noise.

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.


It's Halloween on terra firma, so in blogland it's Thanksgiving (at least). So, in the spirit of being prepared for the holiday celebrations to come, this week's features focus on  creative ways to complement and adorn your holiday table.

If you've been featured 
(here or on Facebook)
feel free to grab a "featured on" button
from the sidebar.

Now it's time to link-up and share your creativity!

1)  FOLLOW Rook No. 17.  Seeing the friendly faces of my guests on the sidebar makes all the work that goes in to hosting a "party" worthwhile!

2)  LINK-UP -- Link-up the URL of a specific post -- craft, recipe, DIY project, or anything else you'd like to show-off.  This is not  a place to advertise merchandise you are selling.  If you're interested in promoting your business with Rook No. 17, please visit the "Advertising" section.

3)  POST THE BUTTON OR A LINK-- Grab the code for the button (below) and paste it into your sidebar or the body of your post.

4)  VISIT ONE other link --  Isn't it great, when you're "discovered" by a new fan as a result of linking up to a party?  Pay it forward and make someone's day!


1) click your cursor in the code box, 
2) right-mouse click and "Select All", 
3) right-mouse click and select Copy. 
4) Paste the code into your sidebar or post.

Visit ONE other link and leave them a comment.


If you're a fan of the fun finds, foodie tomfoolery
and crafty shenanigans here at Rook No. 17, would
you take a few seconds to show your support with a
over at Babble?


The links are featured from newest to oldest,
so everyone gets a chance to go "first".

  5. Hi Jenn, Thanks for hosting another great party. I'm sharing something that is a few weeks old but such a wonderful dessert that can be made ahead of time for any holidays. The honey and cardamom scream holidays to me.
