Corgyncombe School Inspired by Tasha Tudor

"The Days of Valentines: Amelia's Favorite Things"
Auntie Nicey Ethlaurinda is the teacher at Corgyncombe School. On the blackboard she has written some rules that she expects all of her students to follow and she will tolerate nothing less. Auntie Nicey Ethlaurinda loves her students, that is why she expects the best behavior from them. The children love Auntie Nicey, too, as they know that she wants what's best for them!

Auntie Nicey Ethlaurinda was named Nicey due to her close resemblance to Tasha Tudor's doll Nicey Melinda.
Tasha Tudor thought the name Ethlaurinda to be quite imaginative.

Everyone probably remembers the joy of presenting a special Valentine to a most admired teacher!

Tasha Tudor's Valentine Calendars and delightful dolls inspired Diane and Sarah to create their own Valentine Calendar to Count the Days Until Valentines Day.

The link takes you to our web site "Our Favorite Things" where there is a special page with our Calendar with 14 hearts covered with forget-me-nots until the appointed day. Sometime during each day the window should change to the photograph of the day.
