Happy Birthday, Tasha Tudor
Photo copywrite Richard Martin
When I was a girl, this was one of my favorite books, Take Joy! by Tasha Tudor.
I think that Tasha appealed to so many because we liked the glimpse of the quiet, simple life she lived. Afternoon tea, home cooked meals, sewing your own clothes....We can learn a lot from how she lived her life...to slow down, to enjoy simple things.
Tasha was a homemaker, she excelled in cooking, canning, even cheese making for her goat's milk. She sewed and made her own clothing, she kept chickens, gardened.
We are often so busy in our lives, rushing from one thing to another. Today, I will slow down, enjoy my dear family, cook something wonderful, work in my garden or sew.
And Take Joy! in it.
