i was very sad to hear about the passing of Tasha Tudor, although she lived a long and full life. i find her work such a beautiful inspiration, and on a recent trip to vermont i really enjoyed reading a little of her biography at the inn i stayed at. my daughter received one of her books in her easter basket this year, and i admit to pulling it out often for inspiration. her work really captures a time of innocence and simplicity. i'm sure she will be missed.
