In the book A Time to Keep Tasha Tudor highlights her family traditions and holiday celebrations for each month of the year. We owned this book when I was a child and I used to pore over the pages. Now I have my own copy and I still look through it often. My girls love it as well. Tasha's tiny details and decorated borders are so fun.
Of November Tasha says "On Thanksgiving we roasted the turkey before the fire. So many relatives came to visit that the children had to sleep in the barn. We did plays and charades and had a literary contest with a handsome book for first prize. That's the month we made Christmas presents and a year's supply of candles."
Aren't her candlemaking illustrations dear? (and of course there's a corgi under the table - there's always at least one corgi, often more like four, milling around in her drawings.)
