I love, love Tasha Tudor. Your tags honor her work in the nicest way.

I love the Tasha Tudor tags. What a great
way to honor such a lovely woman. I love her
and I am sad she is gone but, her spirit will live on. I have quite a few of her books and I also love her illustrations. I love the work you did and I am sure she would be honored.

Karla, beautiful cards, and with your own style, that's the best!


Your art is wonderful. I'm a Tasha fan, and have many of her books, and enjoy gardening. I'm not much of an artist though. I did want to pass along the news of a public memorial for Tasha that the Tudors are holding. I found this article while searching for any information of a public memorial:

The public is welcome to join friends and family of distinguished Vermont illustrator Tasha Tudor to celebrate her life.
Fans are invited to say farewell at the public memorial service on Friday, Sept. 12, beginning at 6:45 p.m. at the Adams Family Farm in Wilmington.
The Adams family was close to the well-known illustrator for many years, so organizers say it was a natural fit to have the general public share their favorite Tasha memories at the family's farm.
"There wasn't a good way for them (Tasha's fans) to grief and remember and celebrate her life," said Natalie Wise, officer manager with the Tasha Tudor and Family Inc. "The family would like to welcome everyone to come and celebrate Tasha's life."
Participants will take a short walk to the pond where a brief ceremony will commence, with floating candles available for guests to release on the pond in the twilight. Wise said the floating candles are symbolic of one of Tudor's most beloved books, "Becky's Birthday," in which there is a floating cake and candles on the pond around sunset.

"Tasha Tudor fans have posted over 2,000 messages of condolence on the Memorial Web site, but now they'll have a chance to say farewell at a ceremony held outside in nature, as Tasha would have preferred," said her grandson Winslow Tudor in a press statement.

This will be the first public event since her death on June 18. While there is no charge to attend the ceremony, residents will have to reserve a spot ahead of time by calling 802-257-4444.

The website for the full article:



Here I am in my PJ's at 2:34 in the AM, and I've fallen in love. Lol! In love with your website! It is beautiful... your creations are beautiful. Your cottage here feels like a gathering place for kindred spirits.

I, too, love Tasha Tudor. I discovered her years ago one Christmas Eve. She'll certainly be missed, but never forgotten. I hope she's found happiness with her 1800's sea captain once again.

Again, this is a fantastic website you've got here. I'll certainly be back to visit again. Every single day if I can.



I love the life Tasha lived--true simplicity!
