Tasha Tudor Day Giveaway


The other night Marjorie and I sipped tea out of pink lustre and spent an evening dreaming of new artistic pursuits. At the Tasha Tudor Museum, Ellie and I colored pictures and she told me she wasn't sure she wanted to grow up because she, "loves doing child-things!" And I thought of Tasha's endless imagination, her fascination with the child-like things of the world and thought that perhaps, I, too, would determine not to grow up, inside, at least (it is quite nearly impossible to stop the outward from fading). To always see with child-like wonder the glorious beauty of the simple things, when not knowing the answer is quite alright, because mysteries are wonderful and everything is full of promise.


Tasha searched a few times to find the particular variety of rose that grows with abandon in her garden, but to no avail. She was hardly disheartened, though, as a "Mystery Rose" is almost sweeter than any other, for the not-knowing. It is a treasure, a gift just for Tasha, perhaps, that alighted on this beautiful landscape in Vermont because it felt at home. Perhaps, like so many do who visit Tasha's, it felt the magic, and, having strewn its rosehips about, decided to make Corgi Cottage home.


This treasured mystery rose is a lovely, delicate pink flower. As it turns out, we have three nice little plants just looking for new, magical homes of their own. We are so excited to give away THREE cut-back Mystery Rose plants straight from the Tudor family gardens here in Vermont.

TO ENTER: You must leave a comment on this post here, with your name and email address (we must have a way to contact you! If you are worried about spam, please write your email address with (at) instead of @). Please note comments are moderated and will not show up immediately. One entry per person. Unfortunately, due to shipping restrictions, this giveaway is only open to US residents. Please note we cannot guarantee the plant won't be shipped with a few native "guests" or pests. This giveaway closes at midnight ET on Wednesday, September 4th. Three winners will be chosen at random.

Feel free to spread the word and link to us on your Tasha Tudor Day blog post if you have a blog! 

Thank you and Happy Tasha Tudor Day,

  7. Happy Tasha Tudor Day! Tasha has been an inspiration to me as an artist and a mama for several years now. What an amazing lady! I have some of her hollyhock seeds from a few years past, and I always carefully save them to replant for the next year. I love having a bit of Tasha in my yard all the way out here in Oklahoma, and would just be so thrilled to have a rose of hers as well!
    I've already started celebrating with some tea and looking through Becky's Birthday!
    Please consider me for the giveaway!

  30. Tasha Tudor to me was an inspiring woman. Her love for nature and way of living a more simple life, although actually harder, has had a great impact on the way I look at life's values. Reflecting back on her strengths and creativity have given me the desire to reach out and try many different things and to charish what I have.

    I love this quote of hers: “Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is. Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!”
    What a beautiful spirit!

I am going to bake a plum tart in her honor and we will sit out under the stars

  59. The quote "A rose is a rose is a rose" does not do justice to Tasha's elegant rose garden. A lovely gift for those of us who have coveted her gardens for years in books, magazines and on line.

  76. What a wonderful give-away and a lovely post. I, too, felt the same way as Ellie and was not happy about growing up. It was when I discovered Tasha's books about her lifestyle that I realized I really didn't have to grow up! I've always thanked her in my heart for that and for the friendships I've made through her fan base. Never in a million years did I ever think there are so many like-minded, loving and caring folks! I thank her for those friendships too and when we are together, we always raise our teacups to Tasha!
    I am preparing a light luncheon/tea here on my farm for my friend Linda, who has traveled from Oregon to be with me on this day! We will toast Tasha yet again and thank her for bringing us together!

  81. My mother and I met Tasha at a book signing in Nashville, TN years ago. We purchased several books and had them signed and to this day we still talk about her. My mother who is 85 just said the other day that she would have loved to have spent a day with Tasha at her home. Her way of life brings back a lot of memories for my mom. I know you must miss her dearly. Unfortunately I was born a day late (story of my life). My birthday is tomorrow. Sharing her roses is a very special way of celebrating her special day!

  83. I've always thought, how better life was when it was lived simply and to connect with people, not money. I always dreamed of someday owning a small cottage surrounded by Rose bushes....to stroll through the garden at sunrise, with my cup of tea, and take in their beauty in silence, before the rest of the world wakes up. My uncle was an amazing gardener, and his favorite flower was the Rose. His home was surrounded by a garden full of every imaginable color of Rose. I suppose that's what always drew me to this flower because it made his house a 'home' that I always loved to visit. Even though Tasha lived a remote lifestyle (no computers, etc.), she knew how to connect with people through her art, while living her life with the happiness, wonder and contentment of a child. What a wonderful gift God gave her, allowing her to share her talents with the rest of the world, especially those of us who still dream....and need that reminder of simplicity, now and again, in our hectic world.
    Happy Birthday Tasha...you are missed.

    Thank you for being such an inspiration and a kindred spirit (I'm also an illustrator, a costume designer (and collector), a historian, avid gardner with over 200 roses,Vermonter and today is also my birthday as well)we never got a chance to meet. I think of Tasha and her family constantly. Whether it is smiling everyday when I walk past my tiny Tasha tudor collection (I have a print and a book that were autographed that I received as a birthday gift years ago),reading her books to my children, or when I tuck them into bed with the quilts that I have made from the Tasha Tudor fabric line. I am thankful of the museum and always wish the best for your family back in Vermont and will continue to think of you every year my lettuce poppies bloom(I planted the seeds after my daughter Aurora was born this year). All my best and Happy Birthday!

  92. My daughter, Caitlyn, my mother, JoNancy, and I visited Tasha's late this Spring. It was a "bucket list" visit for me and magical for all of us. Caitlyn, being 11, cut through all fluff stating, "Mom! We could have a garden like Tasha's! She was way older than you are!" [Tasha having started at Corgi Cottage at about 61, and I currently being 47.] Following our visit, as she was getting out of our vehicle, Caitlyn was suprised. "Wow! Pavement really feels different under my feet."

    What wonderful gifts Tasha, and her family, continue to share with us! Happy Birthday, Tasha!

  101. Oh I love this! I have lots of fond memories of Tasha's writings and artwork.. But mostly her gardens. You see my mama loved her too and she has also passed away. My mother owned a greenhouse and lived garden immensely. We would order seeds by the fire, read Tasha, and drink hot tea.. All these memories rolled into one for me. Oh, so cozy. I would so much love to win the rose! And so thankful Mama's green thumb was passed on to me! Happy Tasha day! Amy Kneen

  103. Tasha was so special and meant so many things to different people. For us her books and paintings, which we have signed and to be able to have several of her beautiful rose plants would be such a wonderful addition to our Tasha
    Tudor collection of momentos that we have around us.

  105. The day that I met Tasha was one of the lovliest days that I can remember. She was everything that I had expected, but more than I had imagined. To look back always makes me smile. Happy Birthday, Tasha! One can only imagine what your heavenly garden holds.

  106. Having grown up in a Colonial home, surrounded by period antiques, I too lived in a "time out of time" and felt an instant kinship with Tasha and the magical world she created for herself and her family and shared with all the world. Despite the many hardships she endured along the way, I have never encountered a more perfectly realized life (well, maybe Mother Teresa's). Tasha inspires me to be true to myself, and to take the time to cherish the things I love, every single day. I too will read a "Tasha book" today in her honor, perhaps the one about her garden, given the nature of this year's giveaway. What a delicate, exquisite rose! It's so fitting that something so beautiful, yet so durable, would be given away in Tasha's honor. I agree with Carol who said the rose should be named 'Tasha'. I would love to have one of these dawn-pink-petaled beauties for my own garden, and would visit with it every day, come sunrise, come sunset. Blessings to you all for continuing the good work, Elly (ellyhawk@yahoo.com)

  107. as Tasha has long grown verdantly in my imagination (page 53, Thumbelina, from "The Tasha Tudor Book of Fairy Tales," copyright 1961, the page that launched a lifetime's storybook imagination), it would be beyond heavenly to have her Mystery Rose growing in my garden. I would tend it lovingly, to be certain.....Happy Birthday dear Tasha!

  109. I think the Mystery Rose is what we on the Cape call the Fairy Rose which grows with abandon here. It was most likely established by the English who came on the Mayflower as they worked their way down from Plymouth to settle Cape Cod. It has fairy-like and mystical qualities about it which Tasha captured in the enduring essence of all her work. This afternoon I shall work in my herb garden then have a cup of tea in her honor. Thank you for continuing her legacy.

I have many of her books, and love her art as well as how she made her life an art. I'm sure we all miss her this special day.

  127. The rose looks very much like "Kathleen" an antique hybrid musk rose. Lovely fragrance and lacey look for a garden. I love the the rich mix of warmth whimsy and history in everything Tasha created. I would love to have a rose plant from her garden; even a cutting! :-)

  128. How exciting! A Tasha Tudor Rose! (Has a sample been sent to the Antique Rose Emporium in Brenham, Texas for identification? They are my favorite rosarians in the world (except for David Austin) and are very knowledgeable about antique roses.) Tasha Tudor has been an inspiration to me since my mother gave me a copy of The Secret Garden when I was in single-digits of age. I'm past the half-century mark now. The biggest leap for me was realizing that living my dream didn't mean living Tasha's dream, although there are definite points of intersection! In fact, I think I'll head back to the loom right now!

    All the best,

Reflect on what was, but be more concerned with what will be and do your best to make dreams come true with kindnesses always coming back to you. Tasha has been an inspiration and now in meditation let her influence keep childhood close, our spirit of wonder growing, along with all that flourishes with whimsy and beauty in our gardens and in our lives. mikeandcathie1@verizon.net

  154. I too have a special rose that we have not been able to identify...it is soft pink and is a polyantha or spray rose. It grows very well in our red Georgia clay and thrives in very wet or even moderately dry conditions. It requires very little care but does need pruning often, it is so vigorous that I have kept it potted. It is a treasure to me because it is the only plant we have from my maternal grandmother's home place. Every spring I remember my grandmother letting me cut weekly bouquets to take to my school teacher to enjoy. When I read Tasha's books or prepare a "valentine tea" I remember things I have learned from her and the important strong female role models I have had in my life. The memories have grown stronger as the years go by...all marked with the flowering of one special rose. I would love to have a cutting to nurture too. becca ensley beccaen40@yahoo.com

  161. I have never thought about age and I never will because it holds no worth. Innocence is valuable, a child's heart like new, clean, white, paper full of promise and awaiting innovative thought. Therefore the most honorable life goal would be to daily seek that treasure. Because Tasha Tudor, through her life example and work invites us to explore for that treasure, her art and prose have been a staple in my reading classroom. Happy Birthday!

    ReplyDelete
  162. I discovered Tasha rather late in life (mine), and what a delight it has been. I'm very greatful that she was still with us at the time. I have collected and enjoy many of her books and cards. Being an artist myself, I can appreciate her talents. I had tea on my porch, in the rain, with my pretty kitty Kit. He listened very carefully to all that I had to say. My own father would have been 98 last May 5th. Maybe they've run in to each other in Heaven. Keep up to good work family, I look forward to your posts.

  192. Ah, it would be such an honor to have a Tasha Tudor Mystery Rose cutting here with my other roses on the South Dakota prairie. We live next to the Sicangu Lakota (Rosebud Sioux) Indian Reservation. It is a beautiful part of the world and the Lakota people are wonderful. When I retired from teaching, many of the students called me their school 'unci' (grandmother)... This 'unci' would be thrilled to have a Tudor rose to nurture and remember Tasha with...to show to my former students when they stop by to visit. Happy celestial 98th birthday, Tasha Tudor. We miss you. Although you are with so many of us in our hearts and minds...as we try to live our lives more simply and to take peace and joy and love... Tudor family and staff, thanks for thinking of this wonderful and most thoughtful gift. The thoughtfulness gene does not fall far from your family tree!!!! Someone will be extremely lucky to win...but we are all winners ~ because we love and respect Tasha!! And she has made us all better. Our South Dakota prairie is warm today. It was 103 and humid yesterday. I hope it does not get that warm today!! ...as I love the windows open and the breeze flowing through the house... May each of you rejoice in knowing and being close to Tasha. I very much wish I could have met her in person.... ....

    Dear Family and Friends of Tasha Tudor...my 90-yr-old Mom, who just passed, loved Tasha Tudor....She was fortunate enough to have a visit with Tasha at her farm, with my Mom's best friend. My Mom's sight became very limited at the age of 80 but she continued to keep Tasha's books close at hand. She talked about Tasha as if they were old friends. During the last few days of my Mom's life, my Mom would call "Tasha" during restless sleep. I think Tasha was calling my Mom home to heaven, with her. My mom was a complete Fiber Crafts person who treasured being a Mom to 4 children. Thank you Tasha Tudor for being so special to my Mom, in this life and her eternal life....God Bless...
