  • Ellie Tudor and Her Chickens

    March 14, 2017
    Tasha Tudor is known for her charming illustrations that depict the friendship and love between children and animals. Her watercolors of little boys and girls ambling through fields of flowers in the company of corgis, lambs, and chicks radiate innocence and the magic of a childhood spent living close to nature. 
     
    With rosy cheeks and bright eyes Ellie Tudor, the 7 year old great granddaughter of Tasha Tudor, looks like she walked right out of one of her great granny’s illustrations. Though Ellie was born after Tasha passed away, it is clear that her great granny’s spirit lives on in her, and in more ways than one.

  • Gardens Bright

    April 25, 2017

    “I haven't any modesty when it comes to my garden. I'll boast like mad.” -Tasha Tudor

    For Tasha Tudor, much of the year revolved around planning, planting, and maintaining her exquisite garden. In the still of winter, Tasha poured over seed catalogues in search of favorite vegetable varieties and exotic blooms. Seed packets would arrive in March, much anticipated. But it wasn’t until April and early May that the ground had thawed enough to put seeds into the earth. Even before all the snow melted Tasha could be seen, barefoot and clad in her ever-present gardening scarves and apron, checking up on the growth and well-being of her beloved plant friends. By June, at long last, the garden was alive with the bright green of new leaves and a riot of color so pleasing to the eye from the many flowers--periwinkle forget-me-nots, pink, orange, and cream hollyhocks, purple columbine and more--that surrounded Corgi Cottage in such exuberant beauty. There is nothing so glorious as Vermont in full bloom.

  • Harvest Pantry Print

    This painting shows Tasha Tudor's 'Hen's Pantry'. Visitors are often confused as there are no hens in the pantry. This room used to be the closest to the hen yard and as such, their feed was kept here.

Size 8 1/2"x11" Printed in the USA.

You'll also see two corgyn, one of whom is debating whether or not to enjoy the contents of the picnic basket before he is spotted. Size 8 1/2"x11" Printed in the USA.
