Tasha Tudor



I discovered Tasha Tudor in a 1992 Victoria magazine article - which I still have. I was mesmerized by the pictures of her and her life and I was hooked. I'm sure many women out there had the same reaction as I did - I wish I had that life. She is a beloved illustrator and lives as if it were 1830 on her Vermont farm. You really have to see the pictures of how she lives to appreciate it. Her garden, her clothing, her daily life - she seems to have found some magic way to live in this modern world. She even makes her own candles to light her home. Her illustrations are wonderful and go perfectly with her lifestyle and are reminiscent of a bygone era. She turned 91 in 2006 and I've heard there is going to be an auction in November 2007 of some of the antique clothing she has collected and worn through the years. She is truly one of a kind.
