Tasha Tudor First Friday Book Review~ TASHA TUDOR'S SEASONS OF DELIGHT

I am not going to even go into why I haven't been blogging lately~I have just had one of those years when I am too busy and seem to have too much going on in my life. I can't seem to find enough hours in my days to keep up with it all. So, I will try to finish up this year getting back to my blogging but no promises.

Today is the first Friday of the new month of November. Did you see the beautiful full moon last night?
I like to present a small review of a Tasha Tudor book each month. I haven't been to faithful with that one either.

I love this little simple book. It's a pop up book titles Tasha Tudor's Seasons of Delight. It was first published in 1986 by Philomel Books of NY. It was written by Tasha and shows Tasha's home and farm in Vermont. It's very sweet and I love the graphics. Her home, Corgi Cottage, pops up on the page shown below. It's very detailed and gives you a pretty good look at the lay out of her house and surrounding areas.

I like the Autumn pages showing geese flying, kids jumping into piles of leaves bobbing for apples, pumpkins and apples! Her last sentence states..."Thanksgiving Day ends the season with a fancy gathering and a traditional feast."

On the Winter page, her home pops out covered in snow and if you pull the little tab, Tasha herself churns her butter.

The last page shows the decorated Christmas tree, lots of children, Tasha with a corgi on her lap and a marionette show.

The book also features Spring and Summer pages. It's a typical romantic look at the farm life through Tasha Tudor's eyes. There are 12 pages and it measures 8.6" x 8.6". Very enjoyable.

Our Tasha Tudor Facebook page~Take Peace~is working on an Ornament exchange for St Nicholas Day which is December 6th. I volunteered to set it up this year. It will be "A Dolls' Christmas" theme and I think it is going to be a very fun event.

I have this book from the early 90's in my store in Texas. I love it. I love your header and your your interest in Tasha Tudor is so inspiring!

I haven't seen the pop up book and must hunt down a copy for myself. You won't hear any complaints from me about not being able to get blog posts out. Life got so busy for me that I have been very negligent of my own blog the last three months. Hopefully, things have quieted down enough now for both of us to get back in the groove!
