Remember those?

Handmade Tussie Mussie Victorian Cone gift tussie mussie cone

“tussie-mussie” is the name from the early 1400’s for small, round bouquets of herbs and flowers with ­symbolic meanings. A lovely, quaint, endearing term. The word coaxes smiles from everyone, and many people are delighted to discover this archaic custom.  I understand that people today treasure the notion of tussie mussies because each one is personal and unique; and used for totally different reasons.

Today you find them on Christmas Trees, filled with goodies, given as gifts for every occasion filled with sweets and sometimes even with practical things. A Victorian Cone or Tussie Mussie was orginally a small flower bouquet, also called a "nosegay" typically given as a gift. They have existed in some form since at least medieval times, when they were carried or worn around the neck, head or bodice.
