Happy Centennial Birthday, Tasha Tudor!


Dear Friends,

Today would be the 100th birthday of one of our favorite children's book illustrators, Tasha Tudor. We celebrated by making a wreath for Tasha, the namesake of Ms. Tudor. It was such a compliment when we met Rosemary Gladstar and she said my children look like Tasha Tudor illustrations!

We had a family tea in the afternoon, and then painted with watercolors, which were Tasha's preferred medium.

A Giant Swallowtail helped us celebrate by making itself part of the wall decor. It had pupated on one of my hats in the entryway!

Thank you for joining us in our little celebration  of a truly unique life.
