Mind the Music: Chicken in Corn


One string. Lots of chutzpah.



I think the moral of the story is, that when you put your attentions on what you can do, rather than what you have,  or don't have, you get things done. And in this case, the results is a catchy tune, showcasing the talent and enthusiasm of a street musician. 

One string- and no complaints about not having the right guitar. Just plunk-plunkity-plunket and play.  How many times have you said you couldn't do something you wanted to do, because of a lack of something? And here this guy does DO it, with a banged up guitar missing nearly all of its strings.

We could learn a thing or two from Bushy One String. 


It's been a blog tradition here at the Citizen Rosbud to take a blog-cation during the month of August, and this year, it comes in the nick of time. I've been toying with the idea of taking a "media break," for some time now, and take a step away from all  the social media channels. Battling stress, burn-out, and in need of some balance. We're going to use this time away offline to re-access our  needs and purpose, here online, and in real life.

LIMITED TIME ONLY: this LINK takes you to the special sale on eBay valid from now to August 16th: http://ebay.us/1MTF6O BUY 2 GET 15% OFF YOUR ORDER. 

Wishing you all a wonderful end of summer and at least one string to showcase your talents.

ROSEBUD OF THE WEEK: Sarah, undercover


SUPER BLOSSOM: Because she consistently goes for my favorite vintage pieces, and has purchased enough FRESH PICKS to fill a couple of small carry-ons; because she is a Sacramento-based writer, and major foodie, and is all kinds of cute and awesome, Sarah, aka the Undercover Caterer, is pretty much hands-down awesome-boss, apple-sauce, a CITIZEN superstar

OUTFIT POST: visible in vintage


BABE THE BLUE FOX: every once in a blue moon, you stumble onto a dress that seems perfect but not for you. This dress is one of those stumbles. I have held onto it for a couple of years, because it is BOSS, it's a vintage cotton Hawaiian inspired frock made by the humble folks at J.C. Penneys. I'm presuming it's a hostess dress, ya know, for your Tiki BBQ mixer where you invite the neighbors over for some roast pig in the fire pit and Mai Tais, drink a bitsy, and flirt too much at the relentlessly handsome bachelor from Connecticut in front of your dear and darling (and thankfully very patient and understanding) husband. But I digress. 

I imagine this little tropical number has more than a few good party stories up her fluttery sleeves.
