Tasha Tudor Day

Thasha tudor day

 I love Tasha Tudor.  The way she would draw makes me wish I could’ve been right there alongside her, experiencing  provincial life.  Even though I don’t really live her kind of ‘back to the basics’ kind of life, I can really appreciate what she was doing.

I have many of the books she has written and/or illustrated, and I also have some illustrations from her Fairy Tale book.

My very first Tasha Tudor book was A Time to Keep.  I received it as a gift from my parents when I was just a young girl.

It meant so much to me… especially since the girl in the story had a birthday in August just like me!

Looking at these pages (even now) makes me dream of having a birthday party with little wooden animal favors, meringue toadstools,

    I just bought this book from a library book sale for 50 cents and it’s so lovely. I haven’t read it to my daughter yet, because I want to save it a bit for when she’s old enough to want to try some of these holidays with me.

    Her favorite book right now is Tasha Tudor’s A is for Annabelle. Such sweet illustrations, and she loves looking at the “little girl and little doll”/

    Tasha Tudor was such a special part of my childhood. So lovely. We also adored Joan Wash Anglund- in fact we met her and she drew a picture of me in a book (as a way of signing). It is such a treasure to me.:) Lori
