Tasha Tudor's Birthday

Today is Tasha Tudor's birthday.
Clarice at Storybook Woods has begun celebrating
and I decided to join the celebration by sharing
one my favorite books about Tasha Tudor.
The book is Tasha Tudor's Heirloom Crafts.
In the book you will see and learn something of
Tasha's quilting, basketry, pottery,
herbs, dried flowers, soap and candle making,
canning, open-hearth cooking, cider making,
dyeing, weaving, lace making, sewing,
marionettes, making toys, and The Dollhouse.
The photography is just beautiful.
I have always loved heirloom crafts and
have treasured this signed copy for many years.
If you come across a copy, enjoy the joy that
Tasha Tudor had for heirloom crafts.

That does sound like a good book. She certainly was a multi-talented lady.

What a special woman she was - living to the fullest in a bygone age while this mad world went on around her. Thanks for sharing the beautiful photo.

I'm thankful to be able to say I'm OK - I got good news today and will be fine. I know your good thoughts and prayers helped. Thank you Marilyn.

I first discovered Tasha Tudor as a child in one of my mother's magazines. I rediscovered her as a young adult is Victoria magazine. As magazines continue to disappear, I do thank God for blogs. Where I discover so many wonderful things.

I also have this book, at our cabin, and love to look in it from time to time. My favorite is Tasha's gardenbook.

Oh, I wish I would have know it and I would have joined in! I love the book where it shows her garden. Thousands of flowers bloom abundantly in the spring.
