    Over the years the clapboards and shingles on Tasha’s house have darkened from sunlight, rain and time. Winter brings a moment of rest and peace to the land, gardens and house as it sits in the quiet landscape. Christmas is here, as is a cardinal not indifferent to the sunflower seeds scattered around the back step and under the lilacs. Balsam needles and melting snow from the newly set up tree have been swept from the floor, along with bits of paper left over from wrapping presents now under the tree. Indoors everything is alight in reds, greens and gold.

  • Bringing in the greens was always a cheerful endeavor, full of laughs and smiles, as the family snow-shoed through the woods to find the perfect dressings for the home on Christmas Eve. The procession of Christmas greens is brought to your very own Christmas tree with this darling counted cross stitch ornament kit.

  • One of Tasha's most beloved books, this is the first in the magical and imaginative Corigville series. The fair is the highlight of the year!

    In Corgiville, as in many small towns all over America, the biggest event of the year is the fair. The sights, sounds, smells, and all the fun and excitement of a typical small-town fair are captured with humor and affection both in the text and in the marvelously detailed watercolor paintings. Tasha Tudor has woven a highly imaginative story from various themes and events of her life, including a peculiar Swedish troll species known as boggarts, which seem to be imbued with slightly naughty characteristics. Though written for children, adults seem unable to resist the charm of Corgiville, and it has enthralled families for generations. Originally printed in 1971, this is the early 2000 reprint.

    All ages.

    48 pages.

    Full-color illustrations.

    Hardcover.

    Snow may still be on the ground here in the Green Mountains but the first day of spring was warm and sunny. Soon the snow will melt and it will be mud-season. Before we know it the world will be in bloom and Easter will be upon us!

    Making perfectly personalized Easter baskets for family and loved ones is one of the many delights of Spring! Today we are going to share some ideas for creating Tasha Tudor themed Easter Baskets. Whether you’re preparing a more traditional Easter Basket or a themed basket for a corgi lover, a kitchen maven, or an avid gardener we have something for you!

  • Could there be a more perfect image for the Easter holiday? This delightful print shows one of Tasha Tudor's characteristic children dressed in old-fashioned clothes, greeting a pet rabbit on an early spring day.

    It is springtime in Vermont, and that is marked with many subtle and not-so-subtle shifts in routine. Four o'clock is no longer dusk, and as such, our tea times feel lighter, and more refreshing...compelling us onward into the now-light evening. Tea has taken on a distinctly spring-like feel, filled with pastel chocolates, citrusy delights, and a table laden with fresh flowers. As if a riot of daffodils in Tasha's garden, and the perfectly clear blue skies aren't lovely enough, Easter and April birthdays make the time seem even more exciting. Here are few recent scenes...

  • Many of our fans have always wanted to have chickens of their own. This bulletin covers all of the basics, from the legalities of raising poultry in your area to purchasing chicks and collecting eggs. We receive many requests for information on "How To" live the Tasha Tudor lifestyle. Storey's Country Widsom Bulletins offer practical, hands-on instructions designed to help you master dozens of country living skills quickly and easily.

  • With a wonderful flower border and girls dancing in charming frocks, this print would add a cheerful touch to your daughter or granddaughter's room. Printed in collaboration with the 2009 Rufus Porter Exhibit. Tasha painted this image for her 1956 Caldecott Honor counting book, 1 is One.  Paper sized 10 3/4 x 13, image sized 6 3/4" x 9".

    A classic poem for this beautiful time of year....

     
    WHEN the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock,
    And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey-cock,
    And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens,
    And the rooster's hallylooyer as he tiptoes on the fence;
    O, it's then the time a feller is a-feelin' at his best,
    With the risin' sun to greet him from a night of peaceful rest,
    As he leaves the house, bareheaded, and goes out to feed the stock,
    When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock...

    April is a notoriously fickle month in Vermont when it comes to weather. Spring comes in fits and starts. As Tasha said of an April past, “The other day we had 90°F, there was one day in between, and the next morning there was a frost.” After weeks of snow, rain, wind, mud and, occasionally, sun we have finally (hopefully) turned the corner! To celebrate the end of our long Vermont winter we are having a flash sale on all Tasha Tudor prints!
