Happy Birthday, Tasha

Tasha Tudor, one of my favorite illustrators of children's books,
would have been 100 today.
Happy Birthday in remembrance of the few minutes
in time that I got to stand and visit with you.

Seeing Tasha making dipped candles brings
back many memories of all the years I made hand dipped candles
I love how she lived making so many things for her home.

Happy Birthday, Tasha Tudor!

Happy Weekend, dear friends.

I always think she is alive though I plainly know otherwise. The memory of her is so vivid and alive.

That's funny Marilyn, I was just going to do a post on her. I love her artwork, her literature and her love for gardens and her corgi's. She was a beautiful person. They have also come out with a movie on her, and I'm hoping it will be released in the states on DVD.

Love, love, love Tasha Tudor! In fact, I just got a copy today of Pumpkin Moonshine that I had ordered. AND I am touring her home in September--Yes!!!!!

Her illustrations are so wonderful and bring back so many memories. I love this photo, Marilyn. Beautiful.

Her illustrations are lovely, and her life of simplicity and making things by hand has always fascinated me. Hand dipped candles - I'm impressed!

Oh, this is lovely! She lived in the world, but not of the world, in a different time... I so admire how she did that, how she lived so close with the Earth. I love her books. You got to meet her--what joy! :o) ((HUGS))
