Tasha Tudor Valentine Calendars and Books

During the Days of Valentines the Corgyncombe Library displays some of their Tasha Tudor Valentine delights. In the upper left is Tasha's "Be Mine" Valentine Calendar. It has 14 doors to open with quotes behind them. The book in the upper right is Tasha Tudor's "A Time to Keep". "A Time to Keep" and "Around the Year" (not pictured) are such beautifully illustrated books for those who like to partake in all the seasons' monthly celebrations! There is always something nice to look forward to in the upcoming season. They are two of Diane's favorite Tasha Tudor books and she highly recommends them. Below "A Time to Keep" is the "Dr. Cupid Corgi" Valentine card, "The Jenny Wren Book of Valentines", and the "Be Mine" Valentine card. In the lower right is "Dr. Cupid Corgi's Laboratory of Love" Valentine calendar with 14 doors to open. In the lower left are the wrappings from a gift that Tasha Tudor gave Diane and Sarah. Next is "All for Love" filled with poetry, songs, and Tasha Tudor's Valentine traditions. It was a gift from Diane's husband.

Tasha Tudor's work is always so cheerful and lovely, especially in February near Valentine's Day when it's cold and snowy outside. The "Be Mine" Valentine Calendar and "Dr. Cupid Corgi's Laboratory of Love" Valentine Calendar are such fun to open as Valentine's Day approaches! Sarah was the model for the little girl in Tasha Tudor's "Be Mine" Valentine Calendar and Valentine card.

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.

Diane and Sarah's 4th Annual Doll Valentine Calendar "The Days of Valentines: Amelia's Favorite Things" can be found by clicking here:

"The Days of Valentines: Amelia's Favorite Things" Valentine Calendar features the dolls and their animal friends at Corgyncombe as they celebrate the joys and delights of Valentine's Day at this gorgeous wintery time of year!

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.
