Happy Tasha Tudor Day


    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!

When I read about Tasha Tudor in a magazine while flying on an airplane in the 1990s, I send away for a copy of the biography (written by her daughter) "Drawn From New England." I was charmed.
Our local library keeps their copy on the shelves for children, probably because she was a children's book illustrator.

Happy Tasha Tudor Day Clarice!
Love the message from Tasha about embracing a life connected with nature


Happy tasha tudor Day, dear Clarice! I made a new apron just for today! I used a thrifted rose print skirt, which I deconstructed and added a deep gingham border and ties to. It makes me so happy. We had homemade applesauce for dessert today, that is so Tasha, too; and I have 10lbs of plums in my pantry waiting to be made into plum butter. Just loving Autumn.
