What drew me to Tasha Tudor originally was her garden! I had received this book as a gift and was so captivated with her beautiful garden that I wanted to learn more about her!
What I always admired about her was that she seemed to live her life true to who she was. I loved that she was so "old-fashioned". I don't think I would go as far as dressing the part, but I admired that she loved the old ways of doing things. Especially at at time when this was not as "in vogue" as it is now!
Interestingly, I didn't come to know her as an artist until a few years later when I started reading some children's books to my daughter that she had illustrated! I was always more interested in her garden and home life!
A few years ago I was in a "junque" shop in Atlanta sifting through some papers and found these old Corgi Cottage Industries Catalogs! I thought I'd share a few scans from them.
Look she sold cream moisturizing cream!
Illustrations of her beloved Corgis (or Corgyn as Tasha would say)!
