A Tasha Tudor's Tea Time

Welcome Sweet Tea Friends to: 

"A Tasha Tudor Tea Time"

Bernideen is having a special Tea in the Garden today to celebrate Tasha Tudor's 102nd Birthday and I wanted to join in the fun.

I have only owned one Tasha Tudor book which is called A is for Annabelle.  I had it in my kindergarten class because it is an alphabet book.  Since I retired my collections are stacked in boxes and I was unable to locate it.

This is what the book looked like.

Each letter of the alphabet is related to a doll's beautiful accessories, such as lockets and parasols, in a brilliantly illustrated companion to the Caldecott award-winning counting book.  It was originally published in 1954 and Tasha Tudor is the Author and Illustrator. 

So today I have tried to create a tea party appropriate for a little girl and her dolls to remember Tasha Tudor. 

I have chosen two favourite demitasse teacups ~ just the perfect size for a little girl.  (I wish my grand daughter was her to play with me).

This demitasse is a Tuscan DuBarry Rose.

This wee one is Spode's Billingsley Rose. 

I love the little faces on this vintage teapot.

The teapot is a miniature Sadler cube.

Little girls love to dress up so on the bush is a pretty white frock and sparkly crown.

 A vintage purse and pearls is needed for dress up too.

The flowers were for our 35th Wedding Anniversary ~ a gift from my son and dear daughter-in-law.  Thank you Bradley and Anna!

Thank you too for stopping by today for a tea time  tribute to Tasha Tudor.

See you next time!
