Happy Birthday, Tasha Tudor

Dear Friends,

Today is Tasha Tudor's birthday; a day that always gives an excuse to slow down, look around, and see how blessed we are to have the simple life that we do. We celebrated Tasha's birthday by watching "Take Joy," the documentary on her beautiful life, and when it cools off we'll have a little tea party with our dolls.

We've been reading from "Tasha Tudor's Garden" lately, and sighing over the amazing array of pastel perfection her garden contained. Although we don't have a place yet where we can put down roots, and we may never achieve such a grand floral display as hers, books like this fire our imagination and give us hope for the future of our dreams.

 Thank you, Miss Tudor, for daring to live your dream, and for daring us to do the same!

  1. A doll's tea sounds like the perfect way to celebrate Tasha Tudor Day, Marqueta. She was so wonderfully authentic. The little ones look like they would be perfect models for one of her illustrations!

  2. Great minds think alike! Celebrating Tasha Tudor day with you! :)
