I received an email last week that Tasha Tudor had passed. I was so sorry to hear this, what an inspirational person she was to this world. Not only was she a famous author of many many books, but she was gardener, a designer in her own rights, a doll maker, and she seemed to keep the genuineness that she grew up with that this world has lost. She lived in such a beautiful place and I can imagine that her home and gardens were just magical. I'm not sure that this world will ever see anyone as great as she was. She will truly be missed by so many.
When I first discovered her books, I was just entranced. I could spend hours looking through her books. I always loved reading about her in Victoria Magazine (they too have payed a special tribute to her) or watching the Christmas specials on PBS. I left a comment on the websites memorial, but I really wanted to pay tribute to this very special woman.
Because of her love of Corgi's is what inspired me to find mine. My heartfelt sympathies are with her family.
