What delightful way to end my visit ~ meeting Amy Tudor and Tasha’s Great granddaughter Katie and seeing Natalie again. Everyone is always so very pleasant and informative. I know a lot about Tasha Tudor but have learned something new with each visit.

Fall is a great time to visit Vermont ~ the autumnal colors are stunning!!

Be sure to see my post from yesterday,  where I share some  picture from  my visit to the museum ~ two years ago. Here is the video/slide show I produced of that visit.

Have a blessed day!!

  1. Happy Tasha Tudor day Melissa. As someone who lives on the oppisit side of the US, Washington state, it is a thrill for me to get to see the museum. How exciting to get to look at actual items Tasha owned and made. Some day I will come visit. Thank you for sharing. Clarice
