I Love Tasha Tudor

Ever since I was a little girl, I have known about Tasha Tudor.  Back then, I knew her as a beloved children's book illustrator and author.  When my daughter was born, I carried on the tradition my mother started, by reading her wonderful books to my child.  But wait, there's more!

This incredible woman has also become famous for her lifestyle.  Up until her death in 2008, she lived a beautiful life, set in rural Vermont--in a house hand-built by her son, and following her favorite 19th-century homesteading practices.  She was an avid gardener, cook, spinner, weaver, knitter, candle-maker, and more, in addition to producing her charming artwork.

You can learn all about her in these gorgeous books:
