I don;t know why, but I am feeling supersonic crabby! They just become a part of you when you are lucky enough to live close to the Bay.

    I haven’t followed a new blog in a long time. I think I’ve gotten content with my “group” of people. When I saw your blog photo on Rattlebridge Farm, I knew I had to visit…even without a giveaway. Your table alone convinced me as I’m all about the sea and shells. I am heading over to that post. So, yes I am feeling crabby and I just followed you by email. I look forward to getting to “know” you better!

  291. July 17, 2013 at 1:45 pm

    Feeling “Crabby” is a good thing, Mary. Every summer we travel from Arizona to Delaware to have a feast of Blue Crab at my brother’s, and my sister-in-law makes the best. Not only does it take good it is a beautiful blue color. She uses lots of Old Bay Seasoning. The best!!!!

  292. July 17, 2013 at 8:31 pm

    Such a crabby tablescape and I love it. Sweet giveaway.

    wonderful giveaways!

  296. July 17, 2013 at 10:40 pm

    You’re darn tootin’ I’m feelin’ crabby! I haven’t had one joyous day this entire summer!!! I am ready to write the summer of 2013 off as the worst one in recorded history for me. The worst, I tell you!!!!!!!!

    OK…enough whining. The Blue Crab Bay Co. knew what they were doing when they asked you to showcase their products! What better blog than one with the actual word “boat” in its name?!??!?!! And by a person who lives where this product would get one heck of a daily workout??? Good thinking on their part, and EXCELLENT showcasing on yours!

    Have a great weekend, Mary!

  297. July 18, 2013 at 6:33 am

    It’s hard to “feel crabby” when you have set such a delectable table with so many ideas!!! Really cute.

    Love your lovely and scrumptious lavender posts! Reminds me of my Mother and growing up in England. England sold a hard lavender candy that was yummy! If I won the lavender I’d make a lavender pound cake, make a pot of tea and think of Mom who has been gone 18 months now. Your blog is such fun to open in the morning with my first “cuppa”. Best wishes, Jane

    “Feeling crabby for sure!” Can’t wait to make my sherried seafood using the delicious crabmeat I have on ice. Your tablescape has inspired me to step up my game and do a bit of tables aping to highlight the main ingredient, crabmeat.
