Flowers can say all kinds of things:
“I love you”
“How could you?!”
“Let’s get married”
just about anything. I orginally got this book for some research on Victorian customs and realized it can still be used today. This book goes way past just pretty pictures, though there are dozens of ideas for Tussie-Mussies to give to friends and family. There is a history of Tussie-Mussies and a Step by Step guide to making a Tussie-Mussie in the front, and — my personal favorite — TWO glossaries, a Vocabulary of Flowers and an Index of Sentiments. For research or fun, this is definitely the book to have.
Now let’s get busy and start making some Tussie-Mussies! Our friends and family will be delighted!
