Happy Happy Birthday to Tasha Tudor

I just adore Tasha Tudor! I first heard of her just a few short years ago. I was looking around at the library for some videos to check out and found her Christmas video! Man I fell in love with her lifestyle and her! Oh and lets not forget those Corgis!!!
Last year for my birthday my sister bought me several of her books. Needless to say I was over joyed since I love this wonderful lady. She is such a peaceful woman to me. She has this laid back lifestyle and doesn't seem to be in a hurry. She makes all her presents for people!
How cool is that? She can paint, she can cook, she can milk goats and make a garden and then tend to it. She tends to all her animals and you can just tell how much she loves life. She relaxes me so much when I watch her Christmas video because she seems sooooo relaxed herself. She tends her home, she tends her fields, she tends her animals, Is there an idol bone in this womans body? ;)
I guess my favorite book I have read of hers would have to be the one, "The Private World of Tasha Tudor" by Tasha and Richard Brown.
A few years after I saw the Christmas video of hers the library had discarded it and I got it. I guess you could say it was just meant for me. ;) I have no idea how long it had been on the shelf for sale but it made my day when I found it. Then a few months ago they also discarded a little cassette pack of hers and it is called, "The Dolls Christmas". It's a cassette set of the book and I was blessed enough to get THAT ONE to!!!! I haven't stopped to listen to it yet, unlike her I stay in a hurry. I guess that's one of the many reasons I like her! Wouldn't it be the neatest thing in the world to be able to just spend a couple days with her at her home? I bet she could do cart wheels around me as they say. In other words, I bet she could wear me out with all she does if I could stay with her for just one day. She's so nice and tidy.
I just can't say enough good about her. We surely need more like her in this world today, that's for sure! I sure hope she has the most happiest birthday anyone could ever have and MANY MANY MORE!
Make it an awesome day and do please keep us in your prayers with this storm that's out in the gulf! We're all praying that thing DOES NOT come in this direction!!!!

I surely loved this special woman too! Did you know that she passed away this past June (I think)? It sure was a sad day. I doubt that the world will ever know another like her.
