A Special Birthday

August ninth is a special day to me, the 100th birthday 
of famous author and illustrator Tasha Tudor.
Besides her obvious talents with a pen, she had a great love for her gardens, 
and her sweet corgi's.
Her illustrations in so many children's books were and are the best in my eyes,
These are some of my favorite pieces,
showing her amazing talent.
I just love this one of a sleeping child on Christmas Eve.
This one touches my heart because
this little girl reminds me of me.
And who can forget her art work in "Wind in the Willows"
Happy Birthday in Heaven Tasha,
your talent will live on for many generations.

Yes was a sad day when she passed away. I have a pal that adores all thing Tasha Tudor. She loves her primitive style home,gardens, etc. Has been to the home for tour. Nice of you to recall her birthday.

I adore Tasha Tudor too; one of my favorite books is full of photos of her and her hill top home and gardens.

A beautiful tribute to one of my favorite people...Tasha Tudor! She was such an amazing woman and a true inspiration. I'm the proud owner of one of her autographed cook books, and it's one of my dearest treasures.

Aw...how sweet of you to remind us of this great person. Her art is so sweet and just tells a story all by itself. That is a lovely picture of her in her garden. She looked like she would have been such a kind lady! Thanks for popping in to see me.
be a sweetie,
Shelai ;)
