Remembering Tasha Tudor
Today would have been Tasha Tudor's birthday. She died on June 18th. She would have been 93. Many bloggers are celebrating her life and so I decided to participate.
I first became aware of Tasha Tudor while I was working as a librarian, and I kept seeing this wonderful book come through. The quilter on the front attracted me. I checked it out for myself and was immediately mesmerized by her grace and spirit. I knew then that I wanted my gardens and quilts to be just like hers, but I'm not sure anyone could ever achieve that.
Tasha was an amazing woman. I feel the peace and gentleness radiating from her right through the photos.
When I first saw this picture with the blue and white transferware, I knew I would be a fan for life.
I had no idea until I discovered who she was that she had illustrated one of my favorite childhood books. Tasha could do it all, and do it well.
She was well loved and will be greatly missed.
