i had wine with tasha tudor

The apples were boiling in the pot for my homemade applesauce which were to go on top of the pork roast. Broccoli spears were steaming and my little tuckered out boy was snuggled on the couch with the dog waiting for Daddy to come home from another day in Boston. So, it was the perfect opportunity for me to light the candles, pour myself a glass of chilled wine and read the Tasha Tudor book I checked out of the library. This book is sooooo old and the first time it was checked out was in 1973! 3 yrs. before I was born and it's still on the shelves at my New England library. 

I just love her art and am feeling very inspired by both Tasha Tudor and Susan Branch as of late for some reason. It must be the warmth of their work and the spirit of the season, but no matter what season, I'm a New Englander, love to write and draw, and love the spirit of it all.  Have a great day! ;)


  1. Love your blog, love Tasha Tudor, nothing would make me happier than to see you get that beautiful it do it do it! You're perfect for it! Thank you for your kind words, have a wonderful Christmas. Susan

  2. Susan~Thank you, thank you!! I keep thinking of you in that Vineyard home and the chance you took of just moving East! You brave soul. But, you're an inspiration and I dream of my Vineyard cottage too with my husband tending the landscaping, me cooking, and my son "arg'ing" along with the pirates of long ago. Thank you for your kind words as well ;)Alyssa

  3. Libraries are the best! Like Carrie Bradshaw said, "I love the way they smell". Have a great week!


I read every sweet comment and thank you for enjoying boston bee. health, love, creativity, and happiness to you ;)Alyssa
