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.
