  • Tasha Tudor-Style Half-Apron - Chamberlain Red

    "Bring the bushel baskets!”

    You’ve gathered as many apples as your apron can carry, yet the boughs are bending with apples ready for picking. This morning your apron carried daffodil bulbs for the west garden, then gosling teenagers who needing rescuing from the corgis.  Wrap your apron ties round back, then tie them in the front.  That will keep your apron secure as you carry fresh eggs to the kitchen.  Smooth, sturdy cotton, a calico of some sort,  which hides all the small stains from kitchen and farm.

    Half apron starts at waist and lands somewhere around your knees (22" from waist the bottom of apron). Wide waist band (one inch wide), with extra long apron ties. Width from side to side is 22" and the ties extend 29" on EACH side.

    One size fits all.

    100% cotton antique reproduction fabric.

    Care Instructions: Machine wash and dry.

  • Tasha's Spring Garden

    I remember hearing someone ask my grandmother which season she preferred best. She explained she liked them all, and that when one ended she looked forward to the next. I don’t recall her exact words in answer to that question, but imagine it was a good explanation of her views on the matter. In any event, by the time winter ended she was always ready for spring.

  • Winter at Corgi Cottage

    Winslow Tudor
    January 13, 2014

    By January the snow on the ground at Tasha’s home in Vermont is here to stay until spring. Tasha was always grateful for the snow and the cold. Her perennials were far more likely to come back in the spring if able to sleep beneath the snow, and the cold killed some of the diseases and troublesome insects that haunt all gardens. Her barn, house and animals were warmer when a nor’easter banked two feet of snow around the foundations and on the roof. She always commented on the beauty of blue shadowed snow immediately after a storm.
