Feelin' Crabby???

Hey everyone-Happy Tablescape Thursday! I found some fun crab items on my last trip to Christmas Tree Shops. Here's a little ode to summer...

Feeling crabby and kinda blue?
Don't let the hot weather get to you.
Set a course and raise your sail,
Soon you'll have crabs in your pail.

A cocktail party when we're through,
Don't need forks, it'll be finger food.
We'll enjoy a day in the sun,
Summer's here, let's have some fun!
CTS Plates $1.29, pack of napkins $1, placemats 69¢.
Milk glass plate from Salvation Army 59¢.
Clam dishes flea market 25¢
Fish vase and star candle holder TJ Maxx. Flowers from garden.
Wine glasses Walmart, shells free on beach.

And Earl says:
Putting your feet up on an Adirondack chair isn't a bad way to spend the day either!
Have a happy day:@)

  20. Awesome tablescape. It would make a "crabby" person nice. Of course with Earl as a dinner companion the day would be perfect. Gotta get me some of those shades. Hi Earl, you handsome hunk of bacon. OOPS, Sorry, not politically correct. Love ya Earl. Ginger:)

  29. Cute "invitation" and cute tablescape. Love the cool blue crab plates and napkins. I could really enjoy crab cakes right now. Earl looks really "cool" too with his shades and glass of wine. :)

  30. I have been wondering what CTS was! What great finds. Everything looks so great. I love how you put it all together. Have a great day! Tell Earl he looks really good relaxing in a lawn chair.

  31. Lovely tablescape and Earl is looking pretty relaxed!

    :o) I'm really tickled poink (haha...that was a typo...but I'm leaving it since it fits...oink) I meant to just type "pink"... to have joined in wiht your fun blog hop. Thanks for stopping by...the skillet bread is just the easiest side to add to any meal! I make it all the time...well...more so when we have our kids or company...since it is not on the "watch the carbs and calories" kind a food.

    Thanks again for a wonderful hop!

    Blessings & Aloha!

  40. Those are really cool plates and napkins, Lynn. It's such a fun theme and even though I'm not much of a seafood eater, I think I'd even try a taste of crab. :-) Sue

  41. I need to make a trip to the nearest CTS. That stuff is so cute. I have been known to set a crabby table, but it has more to do with being 49 than plates and napkins if you know what I mean.

    ReplyDelete
  42. No way I'd feel crabby at that table. Love the fish vase!

    Blessings,Debbie
