I have to sayTasha Tudor has been on my mind all week. Mostly because she makes me think about what I want my life to be like and am I living that? Am I letting what other's think dissuade me or letting fears get in my way? The girls and I decided we should have a Tasha Tudor day and remember all we love about her.
First we put on dresses (no female goes to Tasha's house in pants) and dug out all our books (23 of them). We set them all out. It was really amazing to see them all together. By the way the picture below is not all the books I own. We decided each to pick a book and do a sketch out of it. We invited my mother over for afternoon tea and watched Take Joy. If you have never watched this movie about Tasha, it is a great way to get to know her and it is very fascinating (I know my library has a copy). I was struck by how happy she was. She had no grips about getting older. She called it an adventure and was enjoying every minute.
We baked Tasha chocolate cookies for the tea. Also planned to do some gardening and knitting but just did not have the time. It was such fun and we have decided to make this a yearly tradition. Although I think we will do it in the fall or winter in the future. Then we can use candles. If you want to do a Tasha day, here are some of her recipes to encourage you. Tasha love tea, homemade goodies, gardening, books, handcraft, knitting and so much more. Even if you just sat under a tree and enjoyed the silence, it would be very Tasha Tudor xoxoxo
