Tasha Tudor Day ♥ ...

 Joyfully celebrating the life & art of  Tasha Tudor today.  This is my 4th year participating.
  A wonderful idea of Clarice @ Storybookwoods
who began the tradition of Celebrating Tasha's Birthday
  (Aug 28 1915 - June 18 2008) with other
bloggers who share a love and respect for Tasha.

I cherish & take joy in  my collection of  children's books written and illustrated by Tasha as well as those written on her life and garden.

Her style of art is such an inspiration to me.
  Her love of dogs, nature, and home is evident in her beautiful watercolours.

I always loved the simple knitted shawl Tasha wore around her shoulders & knit one similar.

Tasha's favourite dog was the Corgi ... while mine is the Black Labrador Retriever ♥
 My yarn holder and constant companion ...
 I feel a kinship with Tasha ...
 loving the company of blossoms everywhere ...
and taking joy in the little things ...

 and gathering joy wherever I go ♥
and when I read this quote in my Tasha Tudor's Garden book by Tovah Martin ...
"Her hands are always busy
and her head is forever filled
with dreams"

Oh, that's a LOVELY quote too! She was one of a kind... truly authentic and that is inspiring. Lovely photos, Deb.
Have you read about St. Therese of Liseaux? She loved doing small things with great love and joy, just like you, and Tasha xo
