When my son was very small we went to a garage sale and I brought a little book . I was drawn to the lovely illustrations . The book was about kitchen gardens
it seemed magical to me !
In 1989 Country Home magazine published an article about Tasha Tudor's home, garden and life.
I remembered the little book I had enjoyed for so many years.
It was one of her books and I understood why I liked it so much !
I fell instantly in love with everything about her and her simple lifestyle.
I wanted her goats, bee hives, garden, rosemary tree,
blue china and tin oven and still do.
Most of all I want her simple kind of life.
Today I had a tea in her honor with two of my favorite little people to remember her life.
I read "Becky's Birthday", my favorite book, to them.
Petra's birthday is next week.
I wish I had a stream like the one in the story to float her birthday cake glowing with candles to her
but I don't !
I hope she will remember this lovely story about this special birthday surprise and hide it in her heart as
I did so many years ago.
The little book I found so many years ago.
Our Tea Party
Tasha Tudor was true to herself and chose to live her beautiful life in a quiet and simple way.
Tis a gift to be simple.
