Tasha Tudor's Birthday Blog Give-Away!

In honor of Tasha Tudor's upcoming birthday on Thursday, August 28th, I am having a blog give-away!  Tasha Tudor has influenced my life tremendously...inspiring me with her self-sufficiency, her seemingly endless skills, her positive attitude, and her appreciation for the beauty found around us here in New England.  (If you type Tasha Tudor into the search bar on the top left corner of this blog, you will find numerous blog postings I've written that mention her.)  So, to celebrate what would've been Tasha's 99th birthday(!) I am giving away this fabulous Tasha Tudor-inspired gift set!



If you win, you will receive:

- a vintage New England Buttr'y Shelf Cookbook



- a simple half apron, like the kind Tasha frequently wore, handmade by me from a 19th century reproduction fabric



- a set of 10 Tasha Tudor-inspired note cards depicting many of the things Tasha loved and enjoyed.  The back of each card has a quote from Tasha corresponding to the image on the front.  Each card comes with an envelope.  (Please note: these are NOT pictures from her property or of her possessions, but they are evocative of the simple beauty she embraced.)


How to enter?  Everyone who leaves me a comment will be entered ONCE (please be sure that your comment somehow links me to your blog or your email).

How to enter MORE THAN ONCE?  I will enter your name one more time for EACH of the following things:

- link this giveaway on your blog (tell me you're doing so and provide the link)
- "Like" Wonderful Life Farm on Facebook
- Pin this posting to one of your Pinterest boards (please provide me the link)

That's FOUR chances you could have of winning this fabulous gift set!  You have until 10 p.m. (EST) on August 28th the enter.  Winners will be announced on August 29th!

  1. Hello. I am thrilled with this give-away and I didn't know I shared Tasha Tudor's birthday!! She would have been exactly 50 years older than me. I liked you on FB, pinned a picture under Missi Smith and I am also following you now. Alas, I do not have a blog. I look forward to spending part of my day tomorrow looking at all your pins. Thanks for the opportunity to win ( I adore cookbooks, aprons and cards) and for writing your blog! Love it!

  15. Just came here from Cheryl's blog. I had to visit because I saw the name Tasha Tudor. I have been a fan of hers since forever. I too loved her uniqueness. A friend of mine saw her at a lecture in New England one time and I was so jealous :) I do some art work and loved her illustrations in so many books.
    Going now to facebook. I'll be back to read more later....Balisha

  16. I am a recent admirer of Tasha Tudor and her lifestyle, every time I read about her and see all the beautiful photographs I get an amazing sense of peace and happiness. I also have been lucky enough to have rescued 3 Pembroke Corgis, now I am left with just one, till the next one comes into my life.
    Thank you, ruthmcculloh@yahoo.com

  25. Hi,
    This is the first time reading your blog. I got your blog from Thinking About Home (another lovely blog.) Tasha Tudor has been a favorite of mine for many years and I have quite a few of the books written about her. She was a fantastic person, her life was so interesting! I would love to visit her farm someday, I believe they have tours during the summer. Have a Great Day. Hugs, Nana (Doreen Krajzel) ddkrajzel@gmail.com
