Happy Late Tasha Tudor Day!

Dear Friends,

A happy late Tasha Tudor Day to all! Our computer has been running exceptionally slowly, so it has taken us a while to get to posting this video that Audrey made for last Sunday. We celebrated the day in a quiet way, reading aloud from "Tasha Tudor's Heirloom Crafts," and having a cup of herbal tea in her honor.

(You'll want to pause the Playlist before viewing)

Speaking of tea, Queen Elizabeth is going to have a tea room open for the Small Dolls' Annual Fair, which is coming up this Labor Day; we'll be sure to post pictures!

Here is are the words from the flyers that are posted around the house, advertising the upcoming festivities~

Bennett Manor Annual SMALL Doll Fair
Featuring one-of-a-kind Art, Hand-Sewn clothing, Aprons, Bonnets, Pies, Bouquets, books, animal shows, games, rides and prizes! Write to Bennett Manor if you have any questions. HURRY, HURRY, HURRY! Come early and don’t forget anything! Weather Permitting, it will be held outside. You HAVE to be there!

One day only!
