The beverage is one of Tasha's specialties. She made it from late spring through late summer, most frequently on the hottest days of the year, usually from July to August. She set the front porch table with a turkey red tablecloth, straw spoons, cups, sugar water, a plate of cookies, and a vase of flowers.
We continue to celebrate the two new puppies, Bella and Paddington, who are settling in with Marjorie and Seth Tudor. In the puppy's honor, we've released new items to share the joy. Our new plush corgis and new puppy stickers have all the cuteness with none of the housebreaking, training, or sharp puppy teeth.
It gives us the greatest pleasure to announce that corgis have returned to the Tudor homestead, this time in the care of Marjorie Tudor, Tasha's daughter-in-law. Read on for a look back at what corgis meant to Tasha and for a look forward through the eyes of two nine-week-old puppies.
Our hollyhocks have been in the family for seven generations. This strain was handed down from Tasha's great-grandfather Frederic Tudor. He lived from 1783-1864 and was known as the Ice King who, after many trials and much ridicule, amassed a fortune by creating a demand for iced drinks in warm locales.
Many, many people were first introduced to Tasha through her Christmas cards. For 30 years, she illustrated at least ten new cards each year and this large body of work overflows with heartwarming family celebrations, wonder at nature, New England villages, children with animals and more.
