Tasha Tudor and Pumpkin Moonshine

Pumpkin Moonshine was sort of an ur-book for me. Just about the first one I can remember, that is. It is soft and glorious and charming and memorable. I wanted to live where Sylvie Ann lived, and wear a bonnet like Sylvie Ann, and somehow inhabit the same colors she inhabited.

Tasha Tudor brought genius and charm--and an incredible work ethic, from what I remember hearing from booksellers-in-the-know--to our world.
