I find many moments in my days where I think of Tasha Tudor and how much we have in common ~ as many of us kindred spirits do!
I first became acquainted with Tasha Tudor in the early 1990’s, through two of my favorite magazine ( the kindred spirit connection begins), Victoria magazine and herb companion magazine. Just after this introduction, my daughter read, in the locale newspaper, that Tasha was going to be giving a presentation at the Opryland hotel in Nashville Tn, at he heart of the country antique show – now anyone who knows Tasha knows her love of antiques and that she attended this show regular. So tickets were purchased and a short one hours drive to Nashville and my interest in Tasha was firmly grounded . The presentation was wonderful, Tasha was a delight to listen to and to watch draw. She spoke so eloquently and I love her tact and creative way she answered questions ( some I never would have the nerve to ask). She did indeed, lift up her skirt and show us her petticoat!! She drew several pencil drawing while speaking – a gander, owl etc that was auctioned at the end of the presentation. My daughter and I hurried off to the gift room to make our purchases before the long, one hour drive home. 😉 We were not the only ones who hurried in to the gift ~ Tasha and Seth came shortly after us to her set up for signing books. We did get to accidental ~ ease drop on some business that she and Seth ( I now know who he was – I did not at the time) were discussing before they realized we were there!
I thought today I would share some from my past blog post for your Tasha Tudor birthday celebration enjoyment.
I have been able to experience the joy of three visit to the Tasha Tudor Museum. I created a blog post and photo’s of the first two. I was given permission by Amy and Natalie to take and post the picture. (Please do not remove from my site with out my permission.)
The next and very delightful visit I had at the museum was the exhibit ~ Unending Delight Tasha’s world of Dolls!! You can view my post here:
I did get to visit the museum this year while traveling and hope to share that visit with you soon!!
