  • Making your own Sparrow Post Box

    December 5, 2016

    The Sparrow Post is one of the most beloved and enduring traditions in the Tudor family. Every year, especially near Christmas and Valentines Day, Tasha Tudor, her children, and (later) her grandchildren would spend hours crafting miniature letters or valentines, envelopes, and post-boxes. Once constructed, the family would hang their little post-boxes on their bedroom doors and every morning they would wake eagerly to check to see if any mail had arrived in the night. Sometimes they would use the Sparrow Post to write to each other and sometimes the letters were addressed to or from their famous dolls such as Thaddeus Crane and Melissa Shakespeare who were considered part of the family.

  • Painting Easter Eggs

    April 11, 2017

    Tasha Tudor went out of her way to make every day full of beauty and magic. This was especially true on holidays. Whether for Christmas, Valentines Day, or birthdays, Tasha and her family spent many hours preparing decorations, gifts, and delectable treats to mark the occasion. 

    Easter was the main event of Spring, perhaps second only to Christmas when it came to preparing elaborate decorations! Her son, Seth Tudor, remembers the sometimes harrowing tasks he and his siblings were given in the lead-up to Easter, “We would take brown or white chicken eggs (occasionally the larger duck and goose eggs), puncture a small hole in either end, and using mouth pressure, force out the contents--neither an easy nor enjoyable task.”

  • Tasha's Art Chair, Doll Size

    For decades, Tasha's working "studio" was really nothing more than her paints, brushes, and paper casually strewn at the end of an old farm table where she sat in a low hoopskirt-style chair from the 1700s. The splint seat is actually made of chair cane. Tasha spent hours sitting in her art chair, painting and drawing.

  • Turned Scoops (Three Sizes)

    Tasha instinctively incorporated small touches of beauty in her daily life. These small touches, taken together, can contribute to a life of pleasure. These scoops are just such a thing.

    The Small scoops were such a hit (and so adorable) that we added two other sizes! The Medium scoop is a lovely size, hand-turned and well-suited for sugar, flour, or tea. The large scoop is ideal for flour, dry pet food or birdseed.
