Tudor Tuesday

Good morning friends.  I have been thinking a lot about Tasha Tudor lately.  I think that it's because it's been so dark and dreary and cold outside lately.  Much colder than normal around here and we have way more snow than we have for years.  Looking at pictures of Tasha warms my heart.  The colors that encompass the photos and the peace they bring etch some sunshine into my days.  I love reading about Tasha Tudor as well.  "Beautiful simplicity" is what comes to mind.  I spent way to much time laying in bed Friday morning (thank goodness for snow days) pinning pictures of Tasha.  87 to be exact (some of you have noticed:)  There are so many to choose from.  In most of the books about Tasha, Richard W. Brown was the photographer.

(Isn't she beautiful?)

"Born as Starling Burgess on August 28, 1915- in Boston- Tasha was a nickname given to her by her Father and it became the name she was known by. Later in life she legally changed it to Tasha Tudor. Tudor was her mother's maiden name". ~The Wee Web
She's an acclaimed artist and author of mostly children's books,  but what captures my heart most was her way of living.  She spins and sews, she cooks, she creates, she raises animals, she grows, she builds, she writes, and she paints.  Tasha was a "Prim Princess".  

"Einstein said that time is like a river, it flows in bends.  If we could only step back around the turns, we could travel in either direction.  I am sure it's possible.  When I die, I am going straight back to the 1830's.  I'm not even afraid of dying.  I think it must be quite exciting. ~Tasha Tudor
I think her way of living and desire to go back to the 1800's resonates within all of us Prim Lovers.

There are quite a few books about Tasha Tudor.  I am going to the Library to check out some more about her.  These are my picks for the week.

Her are a few of my favorite websites about Tasha:

Wishing you all a wonderful Tudor Tuesday.
