Food Poetry & Inspiration -- A Little Birdie Told Me...No. 35

I rolled in the fainting couch,
should the following render you light-headed.

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.

------------------------------------------------

Some people have a way with food
and others with words.


And then there are those that have both...


------------------------------------------------


"Sometimes waiting on THE DREAM is like waiting for asparagus...
You put the roots in the ground and nothing happens. Nothing at all.
Then one day, when you aren't looking, everything happens all at once and you are taken by surprise."


------------------------------------------------


"Life is just a bowl of cherries and a bowl of cherries is made even sweeter with a simple poach in red wine, a beautiful burgundy-hued bowl of luscious fruit bathed in an elegant syrup, served plain or topped with a scoop of Bijouxs Amaretti Cream Crunch – sweet cherries for a sweet and simple summer Bijouxs."

------------------------------------------------
"the late summer heat
has me dreaming of all things moorish
exotic spices
grassy mint tea
souks with dark corners
shrouded in
silk -thread canopies
and
gorgeous sweets
like these
sugar poached dates"

------------------------------------------------

Now it's time to link-up and share your creativity!
Just 4 SIMPLE GUIDELINES

1)  JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE NICE -- COMMENT AND FOLLOW

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 the 2 LINKS AFTER YOURS --  Linky parties only work if we all do our part to support and encourage one another.


-With the new LinkyTools format, your link will appear first, rather than last-

Photobucket


HOW TO:
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.

REMEMBER TO
VISIT the 2 LINKS AFTER YOURS
