Good morning, friends! Well, here we are in the waning days of summer. The beginning of the school season, and preparing for the autumn and holiday selling season for me.
It’s no secret that autumn is my favorite time of year. But before we turn ourselves completely to that wonderful season— we have one more celebration to observe for summer— Tasha Tudor’s birthday!
You know from my many years of writing Tasha Tuesday posts and other countless mentions, that artist Tasha Tudor is very special to me. Something about her life and work just touches me deeply. Through the years I’ve found many friends both near and far who feel much the same about her, and so I think her birthday is the perfect time for us kindred spirits to celebrate her life and work!
Her birthday is in a week’s time— August 28. I’m planning on making a post that day to celebrate her, and if you do the same– please comment and let me know so that we can all visit each other in one big virtual birthday tea party!
And to make things all the more festive, I plan to submit a gift of my own to one of my fellow Tasha admirers–– a free 8×10″ print of my original painting “Tasha Tudor at Home.” It was inspired by an iconic photo taken by Richard Brown of Tasha at her hearth, but I added some extra whimsical elements, like the corgis at her feet.
Entering to win the print is easy— just comment here on my blog or on any of my other social media platforms where you see the Happy Birthday Tasha Tudor graphic. You can comment in multiple places (here or instagram) for more chances to win, and if you share the giveaway on any of your personal social media accounts, please come comment again to let me know and that way enter more times to increase your odds!
The winner will be announced in the birthday post on AUGUST 28!
Tasha has always meant a great deal to me, ever since I found the book The Private Life of Tasha Tudor in a bookstore bargain bin as a college student. She completely captured my imagination then, and continues to today. Something about her just speaks to many of our hearts, and I love hearing your own stories and remembrances too.
Best of luck with the giveaway! And I will see you back here on August 28 for a birthday celebration!
