    Tasha Tudor on corgis: "They're such characters- a mixture of a dog and a cat, I think. They especially don't like to be scolded in public. They talk back; they growl and show their teeth and pretend they're frightfully savage. However, they never criticize. You're always beautiful to them." --This is soo Annie!

    Tasha Tudor, an American illustrator of children’s books. She lived the life — a 19th century life — she depicted in her books: “She wore kerchiefs, hand-knitted sweaters, fitted bodices and flowing skirts, and often went barefoot. She reared her four children in a home without electricity or running water until her youngest turned five…” She raised her own farm animals; turned flax she had grown into clothing; and lived by homespun wisdom: sow root crops on a waning moon, above-ground plants...

    Tasha Tudor was not only a writer/illustrator, but she was a homemaker in every sense of the word. She loved handcrafts like weaving, knitting, candle dipping and doll making. She also enjoyed keeping goats and chickens and made cheese from her own goats' milk and cooked delicious, wholesome foods from her eggs and from fruits and vegetables that grew on her land. Every season had its pleasures and its work to be done, and home was the core of Tasha's life's work.

“She was totally involved in fantasy. She wanted to live in her own little world,” said Thomas Tudor, the third of the children. “I found that when I was a teenager, it was very difficult to get back into reality.”

Tasha Tudor died 6/18/2008 in Marlboro, Vermont. Her estate, over $2 million, was contested by the three children she disinherited... "Her will left the bulk of the estate to Seth Tudor, and his son; $1,000 each to her two daughters, and a piece of antique furniture to younger son, because of their 'estrangement' from her." -However, over her lifetime she gave her son a half share in her home in Marlboro, Vermont, $2 million in art work, with a similar lifetime disposition to her two daughters.

About the corgi, in Tasha Tudor's own words: "There is no other dog that can compare to a corgi. They're the epitome of beauty. Apollo can't hold a candle to my Owyn. He has royal blood, the same sire as Queen Elizabeth's corgis, that's why I named him Owyn Tudor after my ancestors. Corgis are Welsh in origin and there are two kinds: Cardigans, which are heavy-headed and have tails that go all the way down, and Pembrokes, like mine, that have no tails and are more refined."

Tasha Tudor: "Nowadays, people are so jeezled up. If they took some chamomile tea and spent more time rocking on the porch in the evening listening to the liquid song of the hermit thrush, they might enjoy life more.”
