Vintage Tussy Mussy's

Happy Saturday to all! Todays post is with 3 different Tussy Mussys! I had seen one that Gini had made and LOVED it! So I just had to try making these!

On my first Tussy Mussy I used Stamps from Heartfelt Creations
HCD701 Posy Patch Matching Diecut
Vintage Lace, Trims
Ribbon(Really Reasonable Ribbon wine satin, scalloped trim Antique Gold


•During the English Gregorian period (1714--1760), pestilence was rampant and indoor plumbing was not. Elegant ladies would often carry small bouquets of fragrant herbs and flowers to fend off noxious odors. Also known as nosegays, tussy mussies remained popular through the Victorian era.

 Currant Use:
•Today, tussy mussies are still given as gifts, and they are a popular choice for bridesmaids' bouquets. Modern tussy mussies often deviate from the original round shape, but remain relatively small.

On my next Tussy Mussy I used Heartfelt Creations HCPC3303Posey Patch Stamps & Matching diecutsHCD701. I stamped on the green dp to match the tussy mussy. Then cut out with the dies. Next I added pearls to the centers, buttons,vintage roses, trim , vintage lace and Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon! its called Satin with Grosgrain Moss!!
