From My Library
When hubby and I were in Carmel with our friends, Aletha and I went shopping-one of our favorite past times. I spotted this book on Tasha Tudor and knew I had to have it; there was only one book on Tasha or I probably would have bought more. In case you don't know Tasha or her art, next time you are at the library see if they have any of her books. I first discovered her when my oldest daughter, C, had purchased a book on Tasha after we moved to Colorado. In all the years I taught I had never heard her name, imagine that. I previously had ordered a book on her life, I had to know more of this little lady but never received it. The book I got in Carmel has so many of her drawings and pictures; I started to read it the other night before our guests arrived. Tasha was quite a character; an artist, illustrator and author who wrote more than 90 books, including The Secret Garden. Tasha lived for 75 yrs and raised her own food, wove her family's clothes, and lived off the land. Her paintings are incredible and worthy of being framed and hung in a home or child's room. This book is one I will treasure and is on my living room table; I just need to find the time to sit and read it.
Today we have another spring like day-yippee. Yesterday I went to the gym, walked a mile on the treadmill after my class and then in the afternoon hubby and I went on a three mile bike ride. Today I'll be spending some time outside with the grands while my girl runs an errand and I'm hoping to walk or bike ride later. Tomorrow I'll be stitching or reading as the snow is coming back.
Have a wonderful day! Noreen
