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.
