Tasha Tudor...

HOW MANY OF YOU are familiar with Tasha Tudor? Well if you love good children's literature you probably are, but maybe not. She's was a wonderful American illustrator and illustrated nearly one hundred books. I just love her things and the way she lived life. What made me think to blog about her was an email I received the other day for some fabric inspired by her and some lovely "receipts" of hers.

If you are a Charlotte Mason homeschooler you will probably love Tasha Tudor, if you're not already familiar with her. She was passionate about the "home arts". Creating a comforting haven for her and her family. Sewing, knitting, spining, gardening, keeping chickens, just creating things for every day life. Afternoon tea always included some of her "tea stories". I imagine if I was a young child in her home I would have cherish these afternoons of tea, treats and stories. Doesn't that sound lovely?

If you're ever visiting Vermont you should look up her museum. There are always events going on featuring things from her life and home. In upcoming events they will be showcasing her favorite frocks, there will be a spinning bee and other crafty things on display. I think if I lived in that neck of the woods it would make for a fun outing. The Tasha Tudor website also spotlights many of her "receipts" and patterns for aprons and other things she enjoyed.

If you too love this type of homemaking, check it out! You won't be disappointed!

Enjoy your day!

    I loved your post today about Tausha Tudor. I have a few of her books and still enjoy looking through them and appreciating the lifestyle that she embodied. Such a saint, that woman! :) If we could all live that way - what a more peaceful life we would all enjoy. ♥
