{oh oprah}

today marks the end of an era. Oh Oprah, why must you leave us? I know she isn't really leaving but i will miss her coming on with fun, truth, wisdom everyday at 4 pm.

I watched yesterday as over 400 men that she sent to Morehouse honored her by surrounding her with candles in a dark room while the song "For Good" was sung by Kristen Chenowith from the play Wicked. Oh my. What a display of one of the many ways she has touched our lives.

A line from the song "For Good" stood out to me.

"because I knew you I have been changed for good "

how amazing it must feel to be honored the way she was, and still be alive. It's a wonderful thing.

I won't be able to watch later today without shedding tears- This much I know for sure, as O would say. Goodbye to the Oprah show. Cannot wait to see what happens next.

{little snippets of today}

Lately I haven't been the best blogger. At all. I had a big show a few weeks ago and am still trying to recover. Work and life have also made things busy so that takes priority I guess!

I had a hair appointment last night and my stylist thought I had abandoned her because it had been so long. I just have been so busy that months went by without a hair cut. Let me tell you, I feel like a new person today! I must go to the stylist every three months. I just simply must.

I have new items I want to add to my shop, but haven't had time. I have custom orders to get done too. I cannot believe how fast time has been flying It has been quite a hectic year and I am so looking forward to a couple of simple summer months.

That's about all for me today. The little painting above from Janet Hill Studio is so lovely. it inspired me today with it sweetness. It seems to capture a moment in time for a crafter or creative soul.

Hope all is well with all of you!

{a sneak peak and an invite}

This saturday kara rosenberry co. and fern and flora will have a booth at the fabulous Horseshoe Market. here is a little sneak peak of what we are selling. (click on image above for a larger view, if needed)
the large needle point in the back (with the house and the trees)was a find from the goodwill. I just love it. It was stitched in 1973 from a mom to her daughter. (there 's a note on the back)


there are many more delightful finds that you will love. If you are in town, please come and visit us! Make a day of it. There is a coffee vendor, food vendors and so many great artists and people to support. We would love to see you! xo. kara
