It gives us the greatest pleasure to announce that corgis have returned to the Tudor homestead, this time in the care of Marjorie Tudor, Tasha's daughter-in-law. Read on for a look back at what corgis meant to Tasha and for a look forward through the eyes of two nine-week-old puppies.
Our hollyhocks have been in the family for seven generations. This strain was handed down from Tasha's great-grandfather Frederic Tudor. He lived from 1783-1864 and was known as the Ice King who, after many trials and much ridicule, amassed a fortune by creating a demand for iced drinks in warm locales.
Many, many people were first introduced to Tasha through her Christmas cards. For 30 years, she illustrated at least ten new cards each year and this large body of work overflows with heartwarming family celebrations, wonder at nature, New England villages, children with animals and more.
Tasha Tudor had a natural gift of making holidays and celebrations magical for her family, friends and loved ones. One way she made Christmas such a joyful time was building up anticipation long before the day. Today we’ll share Tasha’s tradition of creating Advent Calendars.
