Tasha Tudor

 To Celebrate, 
many attended the:
Tasha Tudor Day 2015
* The Centenary Celebration*
Brattleboro VT
with the Tudor Family
and Friends!
 It was GREAT FUN!!!
..~..~..~..
((AND in honor 
of the event there will be 
A GIVE~A~WAY))!!!!


(I'm wearing Laura Ashley of course)!!
..~..~..~..
After arriving in Vermont
I was joined by a fellow friend from
a Facebook group called 
"Take Peace" Suzanne






The Birthday gathering was held
in a church building that was perfectly
fitting for such an event, as the
 structure reminded one of 
Tasha's "Corgi Cottage"!





                                               



Sweet Ladies greeted us...

(Natalie Wise in her beautiful Laura Ashley dress)



..and there were "Goodie Bags" and 
Raffle Tickets!!


The prizes were covetous
including a Grandfather clock 
made by Seth Tudor





                      

           







There was a Floating Cake!

Like the one in Becky's Birthday!!


















Winslow Tudor ,
(Tasha's Grandson)
made the Cake and the 
"Boiled White Frosting"
from Tasha's Cookbook!





So many of the ladies
wore pretty dresses and 
Tasha styled aprons!!



Amy Tudor and daughter Ellie
were so very busy with so many things !!


Marjorie Tudor hosted
a Watercolor workshop!



  


It was very interesting,
informative
 and great fun!!
 I learned some very helpful, new 
techniques !! 
..~..~..~..~..~..


Soon a luncheon with Tea 
was served and then on to the 
exciting raffle!






(the winner of the clock she was so thrilled)!!



There was a wonderful 
slide presentation given by
Jeanette Knazek ~historian!




Ashley Maggie May was 
a very well behaved guest
enjoyed by all!!







Soon we were saying our 
Thank yous and Good byes....
..~..~..~..~..~..
..and then we were off to 
visit  the 
Tasha Tudor Museum!
"Longings Fulfilled"
http://tashatudormuseum.org/exhibits/
974 Western Brattleboro VT o5301



...where some were ready to rest!!



And enjoy sweet conversation 
and delicious Tasha's Welsh Breakfast Tea!



It was so wonderful to meet
new lovely friends!




                                       

There is always something new to
see! This exhibit 
"Longings Fulfilled" was very 
interesting !

Beloved, I wish above all things
