Tasha Tudor who gave me my love for gardening and animals will always live on in my heart. Even at 67, I love to re-read all her books she wrote and the books written about her. I am so glad that her family will continue to keep her alive in the hearts and minds of those she touched with her books and her life.

Sad, I was to read of Tasha Tudor's passing. I was introduced to TT after my beloved father passed of cancer, and I received my VICTORIA magazine, and read all about her "94". Singular character, living her life to the beat of her own drum!
Admire her for that. Got a few books on her at the local library and was thrilled
She did so much, cooking, and painting and writing and the list goes on! The way
everyone should live-live this life and learn, keep enjoying. AND an animal lover!
She will be missed by her family and also many people she touched through her books! Thank god for her teachings, of living and loving this life!I wrote once and she replied! A beautiful soul.

I remember growing her special pansies when I worked for Walker Farm in Dummerston, VT. Meeting her on the streets of Brattleboro, barefoot in her old age, dressed in the style of the 1840's, I greeted her, and asked after her well-being, there came the ever cheerful reply, "I'm just dandy, just dandy!"

I miss Tasha Tudor. I just watched her Joy video once again for the hundredth time. I always feel renewed when I watch her and listen to her gentle voice. It touches my heart so much that I cry. She lived such a wonderful life. You are missed.

My love for Tasha Tudor and all she has taught me can not be expressed in words. I began reading about her in "Victoria" magazines in the 90's . I love everything she does and so want to be like her. She has compelled my inner soul to live off the land , make things from what God has given us. i miss her so much and always planned on going to her house and having tea and just listening to her speak to me personally about life. I have been so blessed by her gardening ideas and love of life and i will treasure them from now on and keep her legacy alive in my heart . Thank you for allowing me to enter my memories of one of my best friends i have ever had. Sincerely, Bonnie Cobb Simons (Shreveport,La)

I only discovered Tasha Tudor about two years ago. What a wonderful lady. To have been able to sit and have tea with her would have been such a treat.
It was such a delight when I came across "The World of Tasha Tudor". A kindred soul! I had found someone who loved the best parts of the past that we have left behind. All the 'Heirloom' crafts that I still practice; the love of gardening, 'putting by', and just plain living without all the pretenses. My husband has told me more than once that I was born about 150 years late.
Ms. Tudor was and still is a treasure. I never knew her, yet I shall miss her all the same.
P.S. When she said with such pride that Seth built her house with his own hands - I understood what she was talking about. From the picture on the front of "Forever Christmas" my son, with his own hands, built me a reproduction of the chair she is sitting in. I absolutely love it. It sits in front of my fireplace.
To the Tudor family: hold on to your cherished memories and anything else - just let it go. God bless and keep each one of you.

The first time I heard of Tasha Tudor was on PBS several years ago. I was in awe of this independent woman. About three years ago I was going through an old Herb Companion magazine dated 1995. I found an article about Tasha. The article is beautiful, and the photography is magnificent. I kept the magazine and read the article often I've recently discovered the Tudor Family Website. "Thank You," for sharing. I'll visit often.

My very first introduction into "Tasha's World" was through her book A Time To Keep. I was in the 3rd. grade and it was my favorite book to check out of the school library. I must have spent hours looking at the beautiful illustrations. My favorite was and still is the page of August where the children are watching the birthday cake float down the stream. I also shared an August birthday and thought this would have been the most enchanting party anyone could dream up. I was a middle child and (I felt) very often misunderstood. I marveled that there were other creative dreamers out there. Although we never met I know we shared simple,secret moments that kindred spirits can never hope to explain. Thank You Tasha for sharing your world with us.

Dear Tudor Family, I am saddened today still at the loss of your beloved Mother/Grandmother/Friend Tasha Tudor. I guess this is how mourning happens, it comes and goes in waves.. well I suppose one has hit me again and I just MISS her today, more than other days! When our Elders pass, especially ones who are as formidable and wise as Ms. Tudor, I guess there is a bit of a hole. Sometimes with how much ugliness I see that is occurring in this world, including resources being exploited, wars, cruelty to animals and children etc. I just know that people like Tasha are a beacon of hope and an answer of how to live in a way that is kinder and more in tune with how things should be, in order to be set right. I don't know if what I'm trying to say is being conveyed right, but I hope it is. Anyhow, my hope is that perhaps this site can remain up for all eternity, maybe a sponsor can take over or the content can be kept on your main website? I just like to feel connected to other kindred spirits who also miss this great woman and can share some stories about her. I can't believe it has been so many years since she has passed, it truly feels like yesterday to me. P.S on a more upbeat note, I find it endearing that there is so many people and family members who are kept busy trying to keep up with the work that she did all by herself- that is in no way a slight, its just that I find Tasha Tudor magical is all ;) Much Love to you all xx
