A Little Birdie Told Me...No. 36 - Featuring Sea Creature Cakes

She is mine own,
And I as rich in having such a jewel
As twenty seas, if all their sand were pearl,
The water nectar, and the rocks pure gold.
~William Shakespeare

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.

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

10 years ago I spent Labor Day weekend in LABOR.  


This weekend, we celebrated the 10th birthday of our sweet Madeleine, and created a special little cake confection in her honor:
Oyster & Pearl Madeleines.

I'll be sharing the sweet & easy tutorial on Wednesday, but today I'm spotlighting the whimsical ocean inspired sweets that landed on the shores of "A Little Birdie Told Me..." last week:

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


Octopus, Candy Octopus, Octopus Brownies, Octopus Cupcakes, Gumballs, Gummy Worms, Under the Sea Party, Ocean Party
from The Seven Year Cottage

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 --  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!
