Tasha Tudor embraced the stillness of winter. While some people spend this cold and dark season dreaming of springtime warmth, Tasha relished the invitation to slow down and enjoy long candle-lit evenings in front of the hearth with family, walks through freshly fallen snow, and the subtle beauty of New England blanketed in white. To honor Tasha's love of winter, we at Tasha Tudor and Family are having a White Sale!
“It may come as a surprise that I am a romantic. This trait sometimes puts me at odds with my practical side, but I have, over the years, attempted to meld the two. Being a romantic, or at least admitting it, is a practical way to enjoy life--it frees one to make the most of everything.”-Tasha Tudor, All for Love
After the excitement and activity of Christmas, the stillness and quiet of midwinter brings a welcome peace. When the weather outside is harsh the magical warmth of home, family, and friends is such a comfort. And for the Tudor Family, the chill of January and February has always been wonderfully offset by the eager anticipation and preparation that leads up to Valentine’s Day.
“I haven’t any modesty when it comes to my garden. I'll boast like mad.” -Tasha Tudor
Let the countdown begin! Tickets for our 2017 Garden Tours are set to go on sale on January 11, 2017 at 7pm eastern time. Each year a lucky few get the opportunity of a lifetime to visit Tasha Tudor’s enchanted home and garden in the mountains of Southern Vermont. Tour guests often say that walking around Tasha’s idyllic home and gardens is like walking into one of her illustrations--a real dream come true!
One week until Christmas! The tree has been decorated, more than half the windows on our Advent Calendars have been opened, and quite a few cookies have already been eaten (we have to test them out of course! Only the best for Santa!).
With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season it’s easy to leave Christmas shopping till the last minute! But if you’ve been putting off your Christmas shopping, you only have a few more days to order the perfect gift for the Tasha Tudor fan in your life and have it arrive before December 25th!
As the nights grow longer and the last leaves fall from the trees a stillness sets in. In the summer we are drawn out into the world, whether to far off lands or to the pond at the end of the road, but something in us shifts as we settle into autumn and winter. The hearth calls to us and its warmth draws us near, draws us together. Is there anything cozier than huddling close to a fire with loved ones, sipping tea and sharing stories on a cold November night?
Autumn Greetings from Vermont! Our green mountains are slowly but steadily bursting into firey hues of orange, ochre, and red. The nights are getting frostier and the smell of woodsmoke from woodstoves and fireplaces lingers in the air. Though the cooler weather and shorter days heralds in a season of slowing down, things at Tasha Tudor and Family remain as lively as ever!
Many of you will have noticed the release of two very exciting new projects on our online store, our 2017 Wall Art Calendar and The Tasha Tudor Family Cookbook. To celebrate the release of The Tasha Tudor Family Cookbook we are happy to annouce several book signing events in the coming months with author, and Tasha's grandson, Winslow Tudor!
We hope that you are fortunate enough to find your way to the precious and colorful backwoods of Vermont in late September or early October. Maybe you can imagine the beauty from looking at Tasha's illustrations. Maybe you can even feel the sweet warmth of the autumn hues and golden sunlight from her watercolors with borders of fall flowers. We wonder what we can do to give back to the earth for the joy it bestows upon us.
"Explore miniature worlds that capture life's details...and capture the imagination."
Mark your calendars! For a limited time this autumn and winter our good friends at the Concord Museum in historic Concord, Massachusetts will be exhibiting a rare collection of dollhouses and their miniature contents, including Tasha Tudor's Melissa Shakespeare!
