Hi there, everyone!~ So glad you could stop by for this very extra special Tasha Tuesday! Why is it so special, you ask? Well, because this month one of my most favorite artist/children's book author, gardener and general queen-of-all-things-old-timey would have been 100 years old! Yep, at the end of this month (August 28) Tasha would have reached her centennial. And well, I think that's worth celebrating!
For me--- as an artist and a mother, Tasha is a great inspiration. She is often quoted as saying "Take Joy!" and "Live the life you have imagined." She believed in following her dreams, in crafting a life unlike anything that was going on around her, and bringing beauty to the world.
Many times, I have found inspiration in her ability to march to her own beat and her amazing talent that she refined so well over the years. She was also a lover of Christmas and Christmas art, which you know I love!
And her heart, I think, was in the garden. Something else I can relate to!
And so, for the entire month of August I will have some extra special Tasha Tuesdays lined up for you here, and we will have some special treats and giveaways that you can enjoy! And if we're going to have a virtual birthday tea party, well, the first thing we need is the tea!~
Last month when I was in Vermont, I was able to visit Tasha's beloved Corgi Cottage and the Tasha Tudor Museum in Brattleboro, VT. I was looking for treats for you all, and chose a bit of the Tasha Tudor Welsh Breakfast Tea, said to be Tasha's favorite and the blend they serve at the museum (and on the garden tours!)
Entering this giveaway is simple! Just leave a comment here on this post. Tell me--- where is your favorite place to drink a nice cuppa? Do you have a favorite flavor? Are you a Tasha Tudor fan or have you just discovered her here on this blog (if you're new to Tasha Tudor, I suggest visiting the family site HERE.)
I am so excited to get to celebrate Tasha here with you--- during the month that the garden is at its peak and autumn is just around the corner! Here's to that rare cool morning that we all long for, when we can wrap our hands around a nice steaming cup of tea and enjoy some quiet moments. Best of luck on entering this contest, ( Winner to be chosen Friday Aug,.7) perhaps it wont be long until you're having your own cup of Tasha Tudor tea!
Wishing you, as always, a wonderful Tasha Tuesday!~
