Autumn Giveaway!

 We are pleased to announce an Autumn Giveaway! We have so much fun picking things we think you'll love. This time, we've partnered with Lisa Cruse, who makes stunning knitted & felted bonnets and patterns for children and adults. The spirit of Lisa's creations very much echoes Tasha's own interests in heirloom crafts, bonnets, and beautiful delights. Take a look below:

Isn't this wool bonnet so marvelously old-fashioned?  It looks adorably cozy. The detail and colors are oh-so-lovely.

While Lisa also makes and sells these beautiful bonnets, she, much like Tasha, encourages everyone to try their own hand at creating.The end result is so worth the effort! Lisa has created patterns to help guide you through the process.


We're pleased to be pairing two of Lisa's bonnet patterns AND the out-of-print classic Tasha Tudor book, Heirloom Crafts, by Tasha Tudor and Richard Brown. These items are certain to get your creativity flowing for the colder months ahead (and Christmas gifts, of course!).

To enter,  all you have to do is leave your name and an email address or link to your blog in a comment (so we can contact you)!  Entry closes at midnight on October 10th. Tell your friends and spread the word! We'll choose one winner at random.

Good luck and Happy Autumn!
~Natalie

  61. The bonnet is so cute and I love to use wool from my flock and felt hats. I have never made a bonnet yet but this is such a wonderful bonnet. I know I would enjoy sitting in my easy chair in the evening and read this special book.
    Oh, to be so lucky as to win this give away!
