An Alameda Garden: Farewell, Tasha Tudor

Farewell, Tasha Tudor

It's hard to tell how much the world will slow down to notice that a woman who felt no need to move with the times is no longer with us. Tasha Tudor, author, illustrator, gardener, mother, maker of dolls and dollhouses, and a women who just seemed to have the inside track on how to live a wonderful life with very little, died yesterday at the age of 92. The LA Times has a wonderful obit that fills in some interesting details of her life, but the most telling detail is in this quote from Tudor herself:
"I believe in moderation in all things, except gardening and antique collecting."
I wish I could have known her. I bet I would have learned a lot.

  2. What a truly inspirational woman. I must confess i had not heard of her before reading your post but really enjoyed reading the tribute to her and all about her life.
    Living to a ripe old age of 92 she knew the right way to live for sure.
    Thanks for sharing.
