In Honor of Tasha...









I've been a fan of Tasha Tudor for many years. Her simple, rustic way of life seemed so appealing...the photo spreads in Victoria and other magazines illustrated an artist marching to a different drummer.


When my daughter was in elementary school, I was her Brownie and Girl Scout troop leader. I would take inspiration from Tasha Tudor's Old-Fashioned Gifts, and we would make things out of this book for special gifts for parents and teachers. This book is a treasure-trove of ideas.

Such a nice tribute to Tasha. She was a wonderful artist. I need to check out those old-fashioned gifts. My granddaughter would love to make some neat new things. I always enjoy your blog.

Crafts.

Ah, girl scout days.....I remember them well......I will have to be on the lookout for the craft book too. Especially if it is a treasure trove of ideas! Happy Tasha Tudor day to you. ~Kathy

Thank you for your tribute to Tasha Tudor. I just learned about her passing from another Pink Saturday post. I have such fond memories of her illustrations in all my favorite childhood books.

Thanks for the reminder and the tribute.

I hadn't realized how many of my blogging friends are fans of Tasha Tudor. It's been fun to read all the different posts and I hope to get to them all at some point. Now I want to find the books and see which ones I couldn't possibly live without.
