Go for the Gold!

Who else is enjoying these Olympics already? The athletes are blowing my mind (swimming, gymnastics, shooting, more swimming!), and I love the pageantry of the games in London. The Queen? Awesome. Zara Phillips and the GB team getting silver, awarded by the Princess Royal, a former Olympian herself? Priceless!

All of this has inspired some gold, silver, and bronze crab searches for those of us watching the games at home:

This is good not only for the Olympics, but also for 
steampunk-themed weddings (love you Courtney and Rhys)!

 
SILVER!
Take victory in your own hands claws!

BRONZE!
Bling with a (telson) spike!

And for the top athletes who win a Nike endorsement (because there is NO WAY they could afford it otherwise):


No, I'm not lying when I tell you this GOLD fiddler crab ring is $5,720!!

  2. Correct: a horseshoe crab is not a true crab, but I love them! You can read more about how they fit in the whole "crab" scheme here:
