Welcome to another Teacup Thursday with Miss Spenser's Teacup Thursday! I love this picture of Tasha Tudor having tea.This is an exciting week for our Tasha Tudor group. Sunday, August 28th, is Tasha's birthday and since her death, we have been remembering her fondly by celebrating her birthday in some special way. Tasha was a children's illustrator who had a long career. I adore her work. She was an amazing woman and the very best thing about her is all the Kindred Spirits I have met through her work. I was blessed to attend a gathering four years ago in Vermont and since then I have met several more members in person and hope to meet more in the future.
I am a member of Teacup Thursday via the Tasha group as Donna is a member of our Take Peace Tasha group too!
I have been saving a little children's tea set for this Teacup Thursday to share with my tea cup friends. Tasha's dolls enjoyed blue and white china was well as Tasha. I have always wanted a set and we found this one early this summer at an estate sale. My dear Tasha friend made the framed Tasha silhouette for me.
The little tea set was made in Japan.
The little teapot/teacup set I'm featuring was a gift given to me by my sweet sister-in-law Brenda and my brother-in-law Allyn a few years ago when we were in Illinois for our niece's wedding. I packed it well in my suitcase! I don't know anything about it...not sure if it's old or new, but I have enjoyed it very much.
The book here is one of my favorites...Tasha Tudor's Heirloom Crafts. Beautiful photos and one that I enjoy reading over and over.
Here's the bottom of the teacup. I have no idea what these marks tell us. There's no name or country.
Time for a cup of tea? What's your pleasure? I seem to always go back to a vanilla black tea. I am looking forward to the coming of fall and cooler weather. I love a cup of tea in the evening.
I took these photos outside today as our Tasha group has named this year the Year of the Garden. It's been fun to focus on a theme each year.It gives us a way to explore Tasha's interests and share posts with members on the topic.Last year was the Year of the Doll-a very popular subject. Every year could be the Year of the Doll for me!
