"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

Happy Tasha Tudor Day!


Today, on her birthday, we remember and honor the life of our beloved Tasha Tudor. This image is from her book "A Time To Keep" for August. The quote at the top of the first page by Christine Rossetti reads, "My heart is like a singing bird." The page continues: "August brought your mother's birthday which we celebrated at night by the river. The table was set with birch bark plates and gourd drinking cups. There wee favors made from walnut shells and families of wooden animals in little baskets and meringues made in the shape of toadstools. But best of all-the birthday cake came floating down the river."


Happy Tasha Tudor Day to everyone who is celebrating the life of this American treasure today and keeping her memory and magic alive! xo xo -CS ^..^ p.s. visit Clarice's Storybook Woods blog for more Tasha Tudor day fun.

My Corgi, Dylan, died just a few hours before Tasha Tudor and it comforts me to believe that he escorted her to the Rainbow Bridge where she was reunited with all her beloved Corgis. I'll never forget her.

She's the reason I have corgis today. Love all of her work, her lifestyle, her sense of fantasy. What a treasure, indeed!

Happy Tasha Tudor Day to you, Cathy! I just adore your new banner. Alas, we still live on a highway and are Corgiless till we move.

Love,

Lovely post for Tasha Cathy, I adore the boat picture. I was thinking of your corgis whilst writing my TT post, they always remind me of the ones in her books.
