Inspired by Tasha Tudor..





As I was thinking about my post for this day, I looked back at Tasha Tudor books and life and realized that this women has inspired me
from the first book that I read of hers as a child The Dolls’ Christmas, to the book that I offered as a give away Tasha Tudor's Dollhouse.

I started this collection after reading the book TT dollhouse;

I like the idea of a larger scale dollhouse.






A Time to Keep beautiful illustrations was a reminder to keep celebrations joyful and not stressful ….and inspired this salt dough goose I made about 25 years ago… My Christmas tree had many of these on it that year and when guest came to the house their would pick a goose to take home…
Years later my daughter, after reading a few books by Tasha Tudor wanted a tree with all
handmade decoration…. We did it, strung popcorn and cranberries, made wool felt elves. Tiny acorn baskets and clothespin ballerinas danced from the branches…

And living in Connecticut there was the year of the bumpkin patch for the children to come and choose from and the reading of
Pumpkin Moonshine..
I could never be completely like Tasha Tudor because a simple life is a hard physical working life… however it is wonderful
to step back in time and enjoy the splendor of life and celebrate a woman who was adored and will always be remembered..
