Happy Tasha Tudor day!! It has been 5 years since Tasha passed and she still inspires me all the time. One of the ways she inspires me is in how I dress. I have posted about how there is just certain styles that make me think of Tasha. I call it Tasha Glam! Which, LOL, Tasha would probably hate the term but I do not mean it a superfical way. I think Tasha more that anyone understood how the way one dresses, conveys ones feelings and intent. I know she was fiercely independent in her dress and did not care that others stared at her in her 1800th century garb.
I am sure Tasha had her outfits for work and ones for play. She enjoyed both the beauty and function of clothes. I think it is in the function of clothes that Tasha has inspired me the most. For no one worked like Tasha. She chopped her own wood, milked her goats, beat and wove flax, not to mention her garden. She was a worker and she knew what she wore would help her, maybe it even inspired her, like it does me.
The one item that makes me think of Tasha more than anything else is an apron, or as we call it in my house, a pinny. I do not know how one can keep a home and not own an apron. It is the symbol of homemaking to me and one of the best tools of the trade. When I need to do some serous work around my home, I put on my pinny, think of Tasha's tenacity and got to it!! Pleas join Tasha's family in remembering her. I hear there may be a give-away!
