Monday August 28th was 
Author Illustrator Tasha Tudor's
102nd Birthday!

Mommy said;
"This is a perfect excuse for a celebration"!! 
And so we did!! 

It is FUN to bring out the linens,
and the fancy china
and wash them shiny clean!!

Tasha took great pride
in her baking and cooking skills
and so do Mommy and I!

We started early preparing
goodies for a feast

Tasha loved to be surrounded
by flowers from her beautiful
abundant garden and always
had cut flowers near by!

And outside here provided us with
plenty of flowers to bring in
for the celebration!

Mommy wanted to read
books about Tasha and
to wear a Laura Ashley Frock!!

“Why do women want to dress like men when they’re fortunate enough to be women? Why lose our femininity, which is one of our greatest charms? We get much more accomplished by being charming than we would by flaunting around in pants and smoking. I’m very fond of men. I think they’re wonderful creatures. I love them dearly. But I don’t want to look like one. When women gave up their long skirts, they made a grave error. Things half seen are so much more mysterious and delightful. Remember the term “a neatly turned ankle”? Think of the thrill that gentleman used to get if they caught even a glimpse of one. Now women go around in their union suits. And what a multitude of sins you could cover up with a long skirt if you had piano legs.”

Beloved, I wish above all things
that thou mayest prosper
and be in health,
even as thy soul prospereth.

Things began to take shape!!

Mommy thought that it

would be a great idea to set out

a cup in honor of Tasha, and one

for YOU!!!!!

made with goat chevre
and tuna on rye

Come and join us for tea!!!

Tasha loved her tea time

We chose two types of tea,
Tasha Tudor's 
Welsh Breakfast and

Simpson & Vail
Beatrix Potter's 
Herbal Tisane Blend

“There is no peace that cannot be found in the present moment.”  
                                                                                     Tasha Tudor

Mommy started us out with loose tea


We had such great fun!!!

And the doggies were happily near too!
(waiting for crumbs)


Happy Birthday to Tasha Tudor!!

After tea we enjoyed
watched DVDs about Tasha 

and ate our cake!

Mama Mousiekin and Missie
celebrated Tasha's Birthday too!!

We had to say good bye
to our beloved and sweet Pixie this August,
she is sorely and greatly missed!

United with her sisters, 
waiting at the Heavenly Mansion  


Mommy says:
"Get dressed up and take tea"!!!

Hope you enjoyed!
many BLESSINGS, love Linnie
