I am a rambling rose. Especially today.
A few nice words have been said recently about the Citizen, and in regards to last week's open house, it's been honey to the ears. The event was a smashing success! Some visitors took some snaps, and a few of them made it into some blog posts, written by friends, old & new.
My lovely new friend Loressa and her boyfriend, Ethan have just moved from the Tahoe area & are a wonderful addition to Midtown. I just met them last Sunday at the Citizens of Rosebud HQ; I loved their positive vibe! Loressa writes a blog called L on Sac and you can read about her Citizen experience by clicking here.
Kerry, who you may know, contributes to Street Style SACRAMENTO, and writes her own blog Fashion Farms and Freedom. She posted a wonderful photo essay on the Citizens of Rosebud, capturing the essence of the space. You can see her tribute to the Citizen by clicking here.

And speaking of the give-away, don't forget to enter to win! There are 3 fabulous prizes including a blogger swag bag, full of treats by such wonderful vendors like Crimson & Clover, Haiku Moving Company, Transient Treasures, and New/Old Jewelry. Contest ends December 15th, and you can enter everyday by leaving a comment. So go ahead and get yourself singed-up for the GIVE-AWAY!
Last week the Colorado based artist of Haiku Moving Company found herself selling at the Midtown Bazaar. Kathy Laskey is in town visiting family for the holiday and she thought she'd like to try out Midtown's newest shopping experience on I Street. She was impressed with the warm and welcoming community that makes up the Midtown Bazaar. People like Nora of Transient Treasures (and Time And Again Fashions), Marilyn and Steven of New/Old Jewelry, Joan of Gram's Cookies and a handful of others who make the marketplace at the Midtown Bazaar so special. She liked it so much in fact, she invited her twin sister to come sell this Saturday with her!

My last bit of business is also my first: the Citizens of Rosebud. Lindsay & I have decided to open our doors EVERY Sunday the month of December from 12-4 p.m. I've got two more racks of new goodies to show you, and we're turning our "Five&Dime" row into a $2 dollar sale rack for last month of the year. Trust me, there are LOADS of pretties for you, my pretties.
So come by and explore the new HQ this Sunday, NOON-4 PM. Please note: the picture above is NOT the studio, but a fantasy rendition of the space. We are located right around the corner from the Fox & Goose in Midtown. Please e-mail me to RSVP and to get the address.
Sunday doesn't work for you? We're glad to do special appointments for interested parties, as well. So if you want to support local artists (and a certain floral-crazed blogger) give me a shout out: firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will be happy to arrange a time convenient for you. You can also find me on Facebook: facebook.com/thecitizenrosebud
Happy weekend, everybody.
