“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.

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!

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. 

How is it that no matter how much turkey, stuffing, or cranberry sauce one eats on Thanksgiving, there is always more room for a slice of homemade pumpkin pie? Today we share with you the Tasha Tudor family's own delicious (and wonderfully simple) pumpkin pie receipt from the new Tasha Tudor Family Cookbook

Making advent calendars is a fun and accessable craft project for young and old alike. This holiday season, why not try your hand at making one yourself?

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!

Tasha was in the habit of forcing bulbs to grace her home throughout the winter months.  Bulbs of choice were, tulips, hyacinths, amaryllis, and paper whites (tender fragrant narcissi).  My son, Benjamin,  who is an avid gardener, recently remarked that one of his favorite childhood memories was coming downstairs each morning to the enveloping fragrance of a large bowl of paper whites in bloom.
