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,
and a cake floating down the river!
