A to B Sides

    At first glance, this song speaks to a war, a battle. But not on the B-side. On the B-side you’re there with him and as the song begins to play…. You’ve had a big fight. Mama crabs been wrong, Papa crabs been foul. More foul and more hurtful than either of you care to admit. But your heart. Your heart. “Aiming for … Read More A to B Sides

Twinkle Toes

Friday Funnies: #thingsIWouldDo ♥

For once CC would be the prankster! May CrabMa be ready.  


Sometimes miss Coco knows exactly what time it is!


Could it be? I’m happy and yet sad, I’m happysad. Why? CC might have to retire her crabbyRide. The story of it’s possible replacement are ultimatums on CC’s mind, but …sigh…that’s a conversation with someone who understands another post for another day. Thk you. I always wonder how people felt about their first car…even though it is never right to worship material things…crabbyRide wasn’t … Read More Ride

➎ Crabby Lessons Learned

5. A Blue crab sale at my local fish market was a good thing, all customers were excited….. CC bought a half dozen, all nicely wrapped in a brown paper bag…. 4. The transfer from bag to pan did not go as smoothly as hoped, we had a runaway…. 3. Coco does not like to be chased by a crab. 2. Slippery little suckers…. … Read More ➎ Crabby Lessons Learned


Sometimes when the moon is full CC starts to miss the people she loves the most. One of them is her pumpkin Alex 🙇 When we get to see each other he is like my shadow….. so I remember the time when he was half baby- half l’il man.. the sky was clear, and I was able to see the man in the moon, the … Read More Moonchild

Product Love: Face

CC was looking for something that could work with my skin through the season changes. And for that this cleanser and moisturizer duo has been awesome. It is not too costly, natural-based, mild and healing… and leaves your face clean and soft. If you are extremely dry, its also blendable…many possibilities. Try mixing in a few drops of coconut oil or Shea. ❤CC Available … Read More Product Love: Face

Crabshell DIY – Meet Mz. Kristalia

I’m completely in love with this edition of Crabshell DIY. Hell, I love all of them, but say hello to my little chandelier anyway. Her name is Kristalia. Total cost was under $100 and included a base with 3 halogens, but each crystal had to be painstakingly attached and kept tangle free. Try that with music playing, a million thoughts in your head,phone ringing,and … Read More Crabshell DIY – Meet Mz. Kristalia

Jean Envy

Ok Crablings,  everyone knows how seriously I take my jeans collection. I will skimp everywhere else, refuse to buy typical designer bags, and wear costume jewelry – but I will NOT skimp on jeans. They are art. That said, I’m equally picky about cleaning them. They do not go in washing machines. Ever. Unless they are stretch skinny. But for the top dogs it’s … Read More Jean Envy

CrabShell DIY of the day

So happy with today’s framing project! I got this painting years ago from a street artist in San Fran. So imagine my heartbreak when the original fell and cracked to pieces. And any paint luvah knows how much the frame means! So after searching high and low with some pretty steep prices, my eyes lit when this just turned up, on a random trip … Read More CrabShell DIY of the day
