We just returned from our fabulous, New England vacation, and enjoyed the Corgi Cottage Tour of Tasha Tudor’s home and garden. This was our second visit. The first time we toured only her gardens but this tour included her home, left exactly as it was since her passing at ninety- two years.
If you love old things, kitchen crocks, copper pots, antiques, old homes, pitcher pumps, linens, flower gardens and corgis, the 1800’s, you will love Tasha Tudor. Upon moving from New Hampshire to her final destination of Marlboro, Vermont, she acquired property next door to her oldest son, Seth, who built a replica of a cottage that Tasha wanted built. So he went and measured it up and built it. He used no power tools either.
|Jeff and Seth conversing after the tour.|
He conducted our house tour and did a fantastic job. We learned so much about Tasha and though we never had the privelege to meet her, somehow I am sure we had a glimpse of her through his personality!
Her collections and her gardens have been beautifully displayed in many of her books and illustrations.
My first book about Tasha Tudor Forever Christmas was given to me as a gift from my husband Jeff in 2001.
Jeff also, unexpectedly took me on a surprise “road trip” one day after work to purchase our first Corgi, Howard Lee Blue! We love the breed so much that we have become Corgi breeders. Jeff now realizes, he tells everyone, exactly how much that Christmas gift has really cost him: 2 trips to Vermont and 3 Corgi purchases!!!!
If you get a chance to visit the New England states you will love it. Here’s a couple great places to stay.
The Chesterfield Inn , Keene, New Hampshire.
|I made this recipe two times and added the sunflower seed topping on the second batch.|
I have included the link to their yummy Carrot Muffin recipe prepared at the Chesterfield Inn- OMG. I have made them twice now and they are sooooooo good!
We also stayed at the Swanhill Bed&Breakfast in Marlboro, Vermont
So Here’s the Thing: Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today. If you have been dreaming of doing it someday, than just do it. You won’t be sorry. Today is actually that “someday”!
