"Einstein said that time is like a river, it flows in bends.
If we could only step back around the turns, we could
travel in either direction. I'm sure it's possible.
When I die, I'm going right back to the 1830s.
I'm not even afraid of dying. I think it must be quite exciting." ~Tasha Tudor~

Her Vermont home, though only 30 years old, feels as
though it was built in the 1830's, her favorite
time period. Seth Tudor, one of Tasha's four children,
built her home using hand tools when Tasha moved
to Vermont in the 1970's. Tasha Tudor lived among
period antiques, using them in her daily life.

weaving, soap making, doll making and knitting.

She collected eggs from her chickens in the evenings,
cooked and baked with fresh goats milk, and used
only fresh or dried herbs from her garden.
Tasha was renowned for her Afternoon Tea parties.
Once summer arrives, Tasha Tudor would always leave
her art table to spend the season tending her large,
beautiful garden which surrounds her home.
Tasha Tudor werd geboren op 28 August 1915
Zij waande zich zelf in de jaren 1830,
Zo leefde ze en zo kleedde ze zich het liefst.
Ze stond bekend als excentriek!
Ze was vlijtig met allerlei huisnijverheid
zoals zelf kaas maken, inblikken, ijs maken
kaarsen dompelen, weven, zeep maken,
poppen maken en breien.
maar ook verzamelde ze de eieren van
haar kippen, om te bakken of te koken
en dronk daar de verse melk van haar geiten bij,
en ze gebruikte alleen verse of gedroogde
kruiden uit haar eigen tuin.
All through the long winter, I dream of my garden.
On the first day of spring, I dig my fingers deep
into the soft earth. I can feel its energy,
and my spirits soar.
