Tasha Tudor

Tasha Tudor made a huge impact on my life. I was sorry to hear of her passing. What a beautiful, inspirational woman. When I first got married we were still in college and struggling financially I cannot tell you how often I thought of Tasha Tudor. She became my most treasured mentor, even though I had never met her. She inspired all aspects of my life, from painting to cooking and especially Christmas. When I had kids her inspiration snowballed into something even bigger. Though I know she led a long, vibrant life she will be missed by many.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention; I had not heard the news yet. What a gentle soul she was. Her books were always magical to me. Thanks for sharing your love of her.

Ahhh no. I was just visiting her website that her family has established. I was there to download a photo of her and thinking of putting it on the side bar of my blog. I love her too and she was in her 90's and still cooking, cleaning and caring for animals. I know they sell some of her books on that site. Funny thing, when I restored my old cottage home nd moved into this town, the town council folk referred to me as "the towns Tasha Tudor". It was such a secret honor for me. She brought such beauty to us all and a simple way of life. I will miss her.
