Autumn Greetings from Vermont! Our green mountains are slowly but steadily bursting into firey hues of orange, ochre, and red. The nights are getting frostier and the smell of woodsmoke from woodstoves and fireplaces lingers in the air. Though the cooler weather and shorter days heralds in a season of slowing down, things at Tasha Tudor and Family remain as lively as ever!
Many of you will have noticed the release of two very exciting new projects on our online store, our 2017 Wall Art Calendar and The Tasha Tudor Family Cookbook. To celebrate the release of The Tasha Tudor Family Cookbook we are happy to annouce several book signing events in the coming months with author, and Tasha's grandson, Winslow Tudor!
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.
