I would like to say THANK YOU to all of you who left such positive, supportive comments on my first ever post! I can see that this is SO much more FUN than doing laundry!!
In keeping with my goal of having more fun without crossing off every item on my “chores to do” list, we are heading to CAPE COD ( the little tail off the coast of Massachusetts) for a little anniversary break! The Cape, as we fondly refer to it in New England (as if there are no others in the world), is one of my very favorite places.
The air, sand, waves, birds and food all say RELAX and REFRESH!!!!
Beach roses rustle in the breeze and thrive in the sandy soil, and, with a little help, turn into yummy rose hip jam!!
When the tide goes out the flats are the perfect place for finding little creatures…

Your table is just beautiful. So many lovely touches.
I am dreaming of dining at your house! Gorgeous, no other word for it. I just found your blog and can’t wait to see what you do next! You spoke to me when you said put the laundry down! You don’t have to ask me twice! Welcome to blog world!
Linda, your table is stunning…gorgeous! Your hydrangeas are so blue…beautiful. Thanks for sharing your coastal table.
Beautiful hydrangea, love the salad plates and the shell candleholders. Your vacation photos are making me want to go to the beach, too! Have fun!
How pretty! Looks like you had a great time, and have some lovely memories! Hope you have a great week. Sandi
loved it all, great intro leading to a fab table!
Like this lots … the sand tones are great! The shell plates … and the stemmed glasses … I want them!
The table is so restful feeling that I could see sitting there and having a great gabfest as you light those great candles…and keep on talking and talking in the dark. The shell plates are just smashing! Joni
I spent a summer on Nantucket many years ago, as a college coed. This table brought back lovely memories. Great design. Thank you. Cherry Kay
I love it! My favorite (and it was hard to pick) are the beach dishes!
I love this table, and all the little details.
Votifs are so cute, and I love the cute little crab.
Your table is just great, and I’m glad you chose to do it rather than laundry.
Your table is beautiful!!!
Linda, this post was for me like a little trip to the Cape Cod. So man nice pictures introduced me into the area and the animals. Love this sweet little hermit crab, isn’t it looking so cute? And your table tops the whole thing. Those candleholders are stunning, I will borrow this idea sometimes because we collected every year during the holiday tons of shells but then we don’t know what to do with. That is a very pretty idea to use some.
All is so thoughtfull set, I really love every detail. Thanky you so much for sharing.
“Rustic elegance” is what popped into my mind as I viewed your amazing table. The table itself is a wonderful backdrop for all your beach-y elements, and all the different textures make for a very appealing setting! Love those candlesticks! Thank you for visiting my table this week!
Oh, this is so pretty! I love the look of the weathered table for all your pretty treasures. How wonderful to have all these shells from all your travels. Your candlesticks are so unique. I really like your glassware too. Your blog name makes me smile every time I see it!
What a treat! I’ve never been this far north but have always wanted to visit. Your pictures are so inviting, what a gorgeous place!
I LOVE your table…everything from the placemats to the stemware. I really like your set of dishes, it makes things really interesting when each place is a bit different. Thanks so much for sharing!
What a beautiful table setting! I love everything…especially the candlesticks. We visited Cape Cod a couple of years ago and fell in love with it.
Lovely table! I am planning a beach table in the next few weeks, would love the starfish and those candlesticks! My daughter gave me some really nice beachy napkins and placemats, so I am getting ready (we live in Florida so it shouldn’t be too hard!) Thanks for your visit and kind words! Love, ~Nana~
From one “newbie” to another…your table is beautiful. Isn’t this fun???
You definitely have the touch when it comes to tablescaping! You’ve really captured the feeling of the sea and seacoast! I loved the beach photos and what you wrote about being in Ireland.
Hope your weekend goes well!
So nice to meet you my across the sound neighbor!
I love your table…and I love Cape Cod. We used to go there every year until we started coming to Southampton.
I am your newest follower and look fwd to reading your future posts!
You really did a great job putting everything together. I really like your dishes. Have a nice weekend, Mary
Whoo hoo! Welcome to the blogging world! I’m thrilled you started your blog and you are off to a fabulous start. Love your tablescapes (something I’m not very good at!) and your photos of the Cape. I’m jealous. I love Cape Cod. You will have a fabulous time, I’m sure!
Welcome to blogging and I agree to leave my laundry for a minute to read some posts tonight. Your table is lovely and I love those PB plates. Shells from Ireland? Now why did I not think of that when I was there? Time for another visit to the Emerald Isle perhaps!
Loved both tablescapes, you are very talented and love the stories that go with them..thank you for stopping by cause that brought me to you so I can be a follower of yours and I won’t miss a thing, love a fellow tablescaper…
Welcome to blogland! You have created two fantastic tablescapes already!
I love the Cape Cod table. I feel like I have visited! Thanks for following me. I am now following you!
Linda I love this table. I lived on Cape Cod for several years and it is still one of my favorite places in the world. I loved it in the winter when it was deserted to walk on the beaches…I think one of these days a return trip is called for. I worked at Woods Hole Oceanographic for awhile and it was an experience of a lifetime.
Really gorgeous -thanks for pointing it out!!!!

Thanks for visiting dolcecapecod.blogspot.com!
I love this Capey tablescape. The hydrangeas are in bloom here now, and, of course, we’re crowded with summer visitors and having lots of fun. I have today off, so I’m on my way to Falmouth Heights to spend an afternoon on Bristol Beach with my sister and the kiddies.
A big, friendly wave from the Cape to all!

There are a lot of fun things to do on Cape Cod. It is an exciting place where you can find amazing beaches, great lodging, good food and wonderful people!
Thanks for sharing.
