We hope that you are fortunate enough to find your way to the precious and colorful backwoods of Vermont in late September or early October. Maybe you can imagine the beauty from looking at Tasha's illustrations. Maybe you can even feel the sweet warmth of the autumn hues and golden sunlight from her watercolors with borders of fall flowers. We wonder what we can do to give back to the earth for the joy it bestows upon us.
"Explore miniature worlds that capture life's details...and capture the imagination."
Mark your calendars! For a limited time this autumn and winter our good friends at the Concord Museum in historic Concord, Massachusetts will be exhibiting a rare collection of dollhouses and their miniature contents, including Tasha Tudor's Melissa Shakespeare!
This past Sunday, August 28th, marked Tasha’s 101st birthday! At Corgi Cottage the day was sunny, hot and humid, just the kind of weather Tasha liked most. Were she still with us she likely would have spent her birthday tending to her garden, lush and overgrown in that extravagant late summer way, perhaps stopping in the afternoon for tea on the porch (sipped hot even on a day as balmy as this!) and home baked cake with her family.
We marked Tasha’s 100th Birthday, August 28, 2015, with an intimate event, one that was infused with a sense of beauty, a Tasha Tudor necessity. We taught our guests how to paint using Tasha’s techniques; we shared stories, food and tea. And of course, we floated her 100th birthday cake. People who weren’t in attendance might have started wondering why we hadn’t been posting much on our website or facebook or even been sending many e-newsletters. Was everything all right in the Tasha Tudor world? Was it ending? Was it over?
