Fans & Friends

It is such a pleasure for us to share Tasha Tudor with all of you. We love hearing from you, and we especially love it when you send us pictures! These are some of YOUR wonderful photos and moments inspired by Tasha!

Two dear fans were inspired by the Mary Jane's Farm magazine article, and the recent post on our well-loved wellies. Oh how I just love that they went right out and purchased their very own! 

 Christie, who blogs at Grammy's House blog, and lives a beautiful life in her Storybook Cottage, had to have the wellies in her trademark purple! She sent me photographs of her wellies matching her irises, hydrangeas, and violets. It was hard to choose just one!

Patti chose brown, like mine. I love the outline of red around the logo, and how she matched it with the red in this photograph. So pretty! And do I spy a chicken in the corner? Patti brought these wellies with her on one of our Secret Garden Tours this summer.

Floating Birthday Cakes! We just LOVE floating birthday cakes! Look at this special celebration that Nancy sent over:



Linnie at the Butt'ry and Book'ry blog completely refashioned an old laundry room in her home back into the Butt'ry (she even found an old potato bin built in!). Her restoration looks great, don't you think? There are so many wonderful pictures to peruse on her blog, here

{That green is so "Tudor", Linnie!}

Michelle from England sent me this picture of adorable bags she made for her twin daughters for Easter. They are just darling!


Reading Material:
"An Historical Lady" and her dear husband popped by the opening weekend of the brand new exhibit "Tea with Tasha" at the Tasha Tudor Museum. She shares the story on her blog! Click here to read and view the pictures on her wonderful, wonderful blog.  {they were even featured in our local newspaper!}

Fan Elizabeth sent in this article she wrote about Tasha for the Rare Books Digest:
