Happy Birthday Tasha Tudor!~ With Goody Bag Giveaway


    And so, here we are! The Tasha Tudor Centennial! Thank you all so much for coming by each week for the Tasha Tuesday posts and giveaways. We had fun, didn't we? Congrats to all the winners and thank you for all your wonderful comments and participation and sweet notes. 
   Today would have been the 100th birthday of Tasha Tudor-- and I'm happy to celebrate today with a nice cup of tea and something sweet! 

   Discovering the art of Tasha Tudor has been so special to me--- it has inspired me to begin my own life as an artist and has brought me so many lovely kindred spirit friends. Our journeys up to New England have been highlighted with visits to Vermont and the Tasha Tudor museum as well as her home and garden. To be able to be at Tasha's home, among all the things she loved and her beautiful creations--- with the people I love and cherish most--- has been fantastic.

  Tasha's birthday illustrations, especially the floating birthday cakes drawn for "Becky's Birthday" (and something she really did for her daughter Bethany's birthday!) has become iconic.

   All Tasha's work can be found celebrating, home, family, animals and simple homemade fun.

  I hope on this day you take a moment to engage in some simple delight in honor of Tasha....on her 100th birthday!~
   Of course....we need one more treat as we celebrate the day, don't we? So I have a very special goody bag to give one lucky poster! The goody bag is full of all things Tasha would love-- one more gorgeous hand blocked scarf from Anokhi in an amazing shade of deep teal blue, a block of handmade goat's milk soap made locally, a handful of heirloom flower seeds with sweet illustrated packaging, a selection of tea bags, and a note card with one of Tasha's homey illustrations on it.


   If you'd like to win the Tasha Goody Bag, just leave me a comment here in this post! FOr extra chances to win, you can share on your social media and let me know in additional comments! The winner will be chosen early next week.

   And so, I will leave you to enjoy your day!~
Take Joy!~

  1. Happy Birthday Tasha and Good Morning Heather and all of the fans reading your blog today! Such a wonderful and inspirational legacy Tasha has given us in her life's work. I am happy that you have found a mentor in her for your own life and art too. Tasha's ability to make the simple and ordinary special is a lost art in today's fast paced high tech world. I am glad her art has inspired your art to keep some of those same traditions alive.

    Love the opportunity to win a Tasha goody bag! Thank-you!!

  36. Although I've known of Tasha Tudor for years, it is only of late I found a group of kindreds, and I am so grateful for this. Such a delightful post about her, and I'm joining your web journal today.
    {Please, don't enter my name in the draw, I live overseas and international postage is the stuff of nightmares.} Good luck to everyone else, and someone will be thrilled.
