Tasha Tudor Day~2020

Today was Tasha Tudor's birthday. She would have been 105 years old. Our Tasha groups enjoy honoring her in some way on this day. Of course, 2020 has changed the way we celebrate everything. Our Pacific NW Tasha Tudor Chapter can't gather together due to this continuing virus. My friend Ann invited me to do a Zoom virtual tea party to celebrate and I agreed. We had a great time. It was a bit different but we managed to talk for 1 1/2 hours.

I used my Pink Luster Ware dishes for the tea. This is the first time I have used this tea pot. You have to be a bit careful with this china as it is very old. I make the tea in another pot and when it's a bit cooler, I pour it into this teapot.

I have several cup and saucers to use. It's always hard to pick one.

I had out out a few of my Tasha books. A Time to Keep was one of the first books I got and I still love it.

My assortment for tea time. I used almond flour and found ways to cut the carbs. Its hard but I'm learning. Of course I did treat myself to a little chocolate.

Chicken curry on apple slices and cheese bites.

Almond flour blackberry scone drops and almond flour brownies. The brownies were a big gooey.

Little tomatoes from our garden. I stuffed some with herb cream cheese.  The cucumbers are filled with an egg salad mixture. These were all very yummy.

Watermelon hearts...yummy.

This is a silly photo I snapped of Ann while she was saying "Tasha"! She lives in Mississippi and woke up to a tornado warning this morning! Thankfully, she didn't loose her power so we had our Zoom meeting.

I made this little banner last night for my wonderful dollhouse. I will have to do a post on this as I haven't been posting much. My Tasha doll and Lilly are having a little party and tea time too.

I love the little shawl she knitted for Lilly! Looks like fall is coming. Ann picks wonderful books for me.Isn't the little fabric teacup darling?

These are the gifts I sent to Ann and her Tasha doll. It was fun to make things too. I loved making the little apron out of a vintage little girl's slip. I made the tea wallet, the card and covered the little box with ephemera.
