Hi friends, and welcome to a special Tasha Tuesday post! I’ve got some exciting news— in honor of what would have been Tasha’s 105th birthday on August 28th, we will be celebrating here on the blog each Tuesday in August, with new posts and presents for YOU! I’ve got some wonderful prizes lined up to giveaway each week, and I’ll you’ll need to do to enter to win is comment on the blog or on my instagram. It should be a lot of fun!
This world can seem such a serious, unpredictable and nerve-wracking place….I feel like we need some treats to look forward to, and plenty of Tasha’s wit in inspiring art and life. I hope you’ll join me through the month of August- why not celebrate for the entire month, right?
As we spoke about last week, I feel like in these times of uncertainty and quarantine, we have a lot we can learn from Tasha. She was someone who loved seeing friends and family and maintained friendships across long distances for many years. And while she loved reasons to gather and create with friends, she also spent long stretches of time at home alone, creating.
She was definitely not someone who needed constant outside stimulus to be happy. Her home was full of ways to occupy her time— whether cooking, painting, gardening, spinning, weaving or sewing. Much of what she did didn’t even require electricity, let alone WiFi. I know I find inspiration in that, and I hope you do too.
My plan for the coming month of August is to write a new post each Tuesday, and then give everyone an opportunity to enter to win a prize. I’m really excited about what I’ve gathered to offer, and I hope you like it to!
Til then, I have to get ready and get everything prepared! Lets find some joy and celebration as the summer days begin to wane. Then before you know it— autumn will be here!
We will savor these last days though, and of course—
