    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. 

  • Marjorie's popular corgi valentines have been herded into one set! Four images, two cards of each, for a total of eight cards. Each image has a different Valentine's themed message inside, such as: "My heart's a gift to you" or "Of my love the angels in Heaven might tell." Printed on lovely, uncoated, textured paper. Sized 4x6. Perfect for anyone you are fond of!

  • A beautiful winter goose with ribbon border in rich colors. Signed and matted (deep red) 5x7 print.

    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.”

    Each Easter Tasha made hot cross buns. She baked them in the large cast iron cook stove, frosted the cross on them, and visitors ate them hot for tea.
     
  • Pumpkin Moonshine was Tasha's very first book, published in 1938. Written for her young niece, the darling book tells the story of Sylvie Ann and a runaway pumpkin turned into a jack-o-lantern or "pumpkin moonshine." A sweet, simple, loveable story perfect for Halloween! 

    Available in hardcover or board book. Board Book released July 2015.

  • Enjoy this simple black & white illustration of a young boy feeding chickens with a corgi looking on. (Don't tell, but he is Winslow!) The page is surrounded by a border of Pussy Willows. Absolutely wonderful for Easter! 12 sheets of printed paper, 12 sheets of plain, and 12 matching envelopes. Printed in USA.

  • Tasha created this picture pulling by old sketches from her many sketchbooks to create this new and distinctive border.  The playful rabbit border is brought together with bunches of springtime blooms and an elegant dance of pink ribbon to surround Robert Browning's poem, "Pippa's Song". This print would make a delightful addition to an Easter basket! 8 1/2"x 11" Image 6 1/2" x 8 3/4" Printed in the USA.

    Red Efts are a familiar site in New England in muddy, soggy spring, but the first glance of one brings excitement indeed! I tweeted two weeks ago that the Red Efts were crossing, as they make the journey from the muddy woods to the ponds. The Tudor family has long known this is a sure sign of spring, one of nature's many clues to us that winter will soon be banished for a few months of glorious Vermont summer.

  • This delightful holiday themed painting includes some of Tasha Tudor's favorite subjects: moonlit snow, friendly wild animals, and rosy-cheeked, joyful children. 20"x24" Printed in the USA.
