At Tasha's home in Vermont, there are three wheelbarrows. One is small, red, and modern with a pneumatic tire and metal tub. She used this one little, later in life.

 Paddington bella corgis

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.

Tasha is well known for her love of corgis. In describing them she said: "Corgis are not unlike foxes, except for short legs and no tail. I believe they are enchanted. You only need to see them by moonlight to realize this."

 Dolls Christmas Tree
 
In our Christmas tidings today, we'd like to share a perspective from Tasha:
 
"For many years, my family and I celebrated our own dolls' Christmas, and it became a holiday tradition we all cherished."

Tasha Tudor had a natural gift of making holidays and celebrations magical for her family, friends and loved ones. One way she made Christmas such a joyful time was building up anticipation long before the day. Today we’ll share Tasha’s tradition of creating Advent Calendars.

We’re delighted to share a Tasha Tudor Day celebration written by Emily Zahasky of Life at Blueberry Barn.  Emily took the idea of celebrating Tasha and made it into something that she could manage in her own way and time.  On the 102nd anniversary of Tasha’s birth join us in celebrating her birthday in a way that resonates with you.

As Tasha Tudor's birthday of August 28th approaches, we are talking and dreaming about how we will celebrate this year.  In 2008, Clarice Fox-Hughes annointed August 28th as Tasha Tudor Day saying “Really I would love if the whole world would stop and remember her. This could simply be sitting in your garden with a cup of tea, reading her books, doing a sketch or just stopping and smelling the roses. Let us all on Tasha Tudor's birthday remember her and all she has inspired us to live.”

In the fullness of summer, on the longest day of the year, Tasha threw a party. Late June was always peak flower season so at this time of year Tasha invariably heard from friends and admirers requesting a visit to her exquisite garden. Always one for mixing efficiency with pleasure, Tasha decided to host an event every year on the summer Solstice where friends, family, and admirers could come marvel at her vibrant garden while also enjoying live music, dancing, food, and more!

Every year at about this time, we at Tasha Tudor and Family tend to be busy sprucing up Tasha’s garden, giving the Rookery a good spring-cleaning, and preparing nametags for the fortunate folks who will be joining us for tours of Corgi Cottage starting June 9th. There is an air of quiet anticipation and excitement, knowing that soon we will be opening up our doors to friends, old and new, from all over the world, to share the delightful world of Tasha Tudor. It is always such a pleasure to witness the joy that comes over our tour-guests as they experience Corgi Cottage, whether it’s for the first time or the fifth!

I assembled the Tasha Tudor and Family Cookbook: Heirloom Recipes and Warm Memories from Corgi Cottage with the idea that although the receipts are straight-forward enough, the cook and baker's philosophy sometimes is not. My grandmother generally used the same type of food that had been available in her youth: seasonal and pretty basic. I think some of what made her meals so memorable was the care she took to provide an attractive setting for it.
