One of My Treasures

This is one of my absolute treasures. This is my favorite Tasha Tudor print and the fact that she had signed it makes it even more special to me. My dear friend Karen and I both bought this print, "Laura in Snow", back in 1991 and had Ms. Tudor sign them for both of us. It was known that this was one of her favorites too. I can't believe I've had it that long and that I finally got around to matting and framing it just yesterday. I had always meant to do it sooner, but like a lot of things, I put it in a safe place and never forgot about it, but always thought I would get to it a lot sooner! I always seemed to really remember it around this time of year, but now it finally has a home hanging on my office/craft room wall. I just love being able to look at it - it just brings a smile to my face.

Tasha Tudor was not only an incredibly talented artist and author, but her life is an incredible story in itself. She really lived life on her own terms. She passed away on June 18th of this year at the age of 93! Her family has a website where her prints, books, etc. can still be purchased and her legacy lives on. Be sure to check it out.

You're so lucky for having this wonderful print with Tasha Tudor's original signature. Thanks so much for sharing.
I do paintings of reproductions. I must definately make one from Tasha Tudor's collection.
Season's Greetings,

Hi Regin,

Thank you! Your crazy quilting looks amazing! You are very talented. I have added your blog to my list of favorites and must get caught up on reading it.

Thank you so much for commenting on my blog. I find it very exciting when someone leaves a comment, especially when they are half-way around the world in such an ancient and exciting place as Istanbul! Please visit again!
