Tasha Tuesday: Going to Tasha's!


 From all my books and all the photographs I've enjoyed of Tasha Tudor's home and garden, I feel like I know it in many ways. I never really thought I'd get to see it with my own eyes though. 
   However--- I am so excited that this summer, that's going to change!

   At the end of June we are loading up and headed out east to stay with friends--- who also happen to be Tasha Tudor fans! While we are out there, we are going to be part of a tour of Tasha's garden and home given by the Tudor family.
   My friend Patricia and I are going to bring out daughters on the tour, and I can't wait to share this with Audrey. It will definitely be a day to remember!
  

  Here in Oklahoma, we are entering into the third growing season we've spent in this house. Plants are starting to mature and finally I'm not too pregnant or too wrapped up in a newborn to be able to work in our garden. We've got two little peach trees, one of which actually has some fruit on it (for now...I'm looking at you, squirrels) and we're putting in more herbs and veggies.
   I can't wait to see Tasha's garden and get inspiration for our own space. And her house....I dont know what I'm more excited to see. Her kitchen? Her parlor? Probably her little corner where she painted. I am dying to see that. I am going to try to hold it together and not fan girl all over myself. Try. ;)
  Thanks for coming by to visit me today. I hope you're enjoying the new Tasha Tuesdays! I can't promise to get them done every Tuesday, but I will try to do them more regularly! And I'm sure I'll be very inspired after this summer!

   Talk with you later and---
Happy Tasha Tuesday!~

  3. Your trip to New England is going to be EPIC!!! So much fun and the visit to Tasha's home is going to be like a dream come true. I hope they let you take photographs so you can share them with all of us!! Like you, I can't think of what space I would want to see first. Perhaps the Winter Kitchen would be my favorite as you know how I love me a big black wood stove! In one of Tasha's books, she talks about making scones on this stove for afternoon tea for her guests. I can't wait for you to tell us all of the delicious details of this visit to Tasha's home!

  4. I'm really excited to be a part of this journey with you Heather! Bringing our two girls is really the icing on the cake. If anyone can get to Brattleboro, VT, the museum is well worth the visit. This year's exhibit is called Longings Fulfilled: Tasha At Home in New England and it sounds like it is going to be wonderful.

  5. I'm sure that is going to be amazing for you and Audrey. Tasha was a true artist who lived and breathed her art.

  7. So excited for you to visit Tasha's home and gardens! Sorry I didn't know about her when I lived in Massachusetts back in the day; now must enjoy vicariously through others such as yourself! Would love to see your artistic interpretation of your experience.

  8. Consider me a devoted new follower to your wonderful little blog space here. (Tasha is one of my greatest muses, I love folk art and my Scandinavian heritage so I do believe I'll enjoy my visits here). Happy Friday~

  9. Hello! I'm a brand-new reader from the east coast (New Hampshire), and I just had to tell you that your art is absolutely beautiful! I found your blog via Catholic All Year and I was instantly in love with your work. I am also an Episcopalian who did not grow up with a liturgical tradition; I found my way to the Episcopal Church as an adult. I'm going to be confirmed very soon, and I am so excited! In any case, your work is lovely, and I can't wait to go back and read all of your posts.

    Take care,
    Kelli Wilson

    P.S. You are so lucky to be going on Tasha's garden tour. I have always wanted to do that, but it's impossible to get tickets!
