Tussie - Mussie

A little nosegay of flowers and herbs

Their perfume was believed to cleanse the air. Ladies of the 18th century pinned them to the sleeves or the hem of their dresses. They last a long time and make wonderful gifts. They can be made from dried or fresh flowers. The classic Tussie-Mussie always has a rose in the center.

At this time of year you might want to encircle the rose with leaves of sage. Let the entire bouquet dry and the sage will be ready for your Thanksgiving Turkey dressing.
