{a few pretties and a party}

I am kind of known as a queen of accessories around these parts...
and I think these necklaces {from anthropoligie} are so fun and pretty.
I am pretty sure one of my talented and crafty friends
could make something just as fun....
speaking of which....
Tomorrow is a Holly Jolly Boutique at my friend Emily's house.

If you are in denver, won't you join us?
email me at kara@kararosenberry.com for the details.

These shows that we have at her house quite often
just keep getting better and better.

Last night I went to her house and we made
some delicious gingerbread men {& women}
and some sweet and spicy pecans. {yum!}
Pictures are soon to follow!
Happy Weekend to You!


{sweet success}

I am still on Cloud 9 from a fantastic weekend.
I did the Gifts for Yule show in Denver. The last of this annual show.
It was very successful for me, and I have a few pages of orders to prove it!
Here is a little collection of photos from the weekend!
a pastel Christmas. My favorite.
{ new items: Stir Sticks, Cupcake Sticks,
a new snowman design, and ice skates}

{My Booth Mates}

Jaala loves vintage and old things as much as I.
I love her work!
{booth mate Lizzie Mara's Darling little paintings.}
i am the proud owner of a new painting from her.
More on that later!

{The Show}
{a huge crowd of happy shoppers}

Candles by the owner of the show Samantha Robinson.

{more fun things in Samantha's booth}
I do not exagerate when I say that we have the best food at this show.
There was a Scarlet Carrot Soup that was the most beautiful
Beet Pink color... and check out the treats below.
pumpkin whoopie pies and root beer bundt cakes. yum!

Since this was the last Gifts for Yule,
at the end of the show we had a champagne toast to the owner of the show,
Samantha. I have been doing this show for at least 5 years
and have met some of the most incredible, and creative women.

I am inspired and excited for the rest of the holiday season!

Happy Monday to You!


{tis the season}

{tis the season for some sweet stir sticks}

I have been getting ready for a holiday show this week.
My mom helped me create these stir sticks and with lots of
darling patterns. We also made sweet sticks for perfect for
cupcakes, and popcorn balls and other homemade treats!

there are Mittens, a Snowman, Holly Leaves
and the I'm Dreaming of a Pink Christmas to name a few.

These are not in my etsy shop yet but I am hoping
to have time to add them in soon!
{please forgive the less than lovely photography.
I was anxious to share these with you!}


{gifts for yule}

hello lovelies
the next show on my list is
this weekend here in Denver.

This is the last gifts for yule show after 13 years...
I have been doing it for a least 6 years,
so it is a little bittersweet.

If you are in Denver, come on out!
Come hungry because there is delicious food!
hope to see you there!

{go here for more info!}


{time for tea}

I have had a thing for warm tea
on a cold morning lately.
Today's post is all things inspired by tea!
Grap a hot cup of tea and read along!
this chandelier is just fabulous.
a lovely print from one of my etsy favorites.
{this one happens to be on sale right now!}
{chirps and chats tea towel . anthropoligie}
what a darling little gift this would make!

whimsical art work from etsy.

I love this tea! It is strong and flavorful and just delish!

it is good with milk and honey and has become a favorite for me!
Go try it!

These would all make wonderful holiday gifts
for the tea lover in your life
Have a great Monday!


{9-5 Fab}

I don't know about you, but I want the place
where I spend 8 hours of my day to be fabulous.
I love to have a few lovelies to look at

Well it seems that the Holiday Season is in full swing.
I am signed up for a bevy of shows this season...

I have barely begun prepping.
What I do have done is darling!
Holiday Garlands
Holiday Cupcake/Treat Sticks
and Holiday Stir Sticks are in the making.
