A Sharefest Lovefest ~
A Little Birdie Told Me...No. 59

Artwork by Frederick Sands Brunner

Happy Valentines' Day!


Welcome to 
"A Little Birdie Told Me..." Tuesday No. 59!
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.


Since love is in the air, I thought it fitting to feature the posts that were most "loved" by readers last week.

To set the mood, here's one of my most favorite feel-good songs:
Sh-Boom by the Crew Cuts, 1954,
accompanied by some nostalgic images from the same year.


And now those features I promised.... 

 Edible Love Notes
from Sew Can Do

from Ladybird Lane

from VixenMade
Goes well with the song, don't ya think?


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

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?


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

1)  FOLLOW Rook No. 17.  Aw shucks, it just makes your host feel appreciated.

2)  LINK-UP -- Link-up the URL of a specific post -- craft, recipe, DIY project, or anything else you'd like to show-off.  If you have something for sale, please refer to 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!

5) OPTIONAL - Leave a comment -- I'll comment back -- simple as that.


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.

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