Tussy Mussy are a small bouquet of fragrance flowers. Here is a link that tells more about the Tussy Mussy http://www.ehow.com/how_2143831_victorian-tussy-mussy.html . I made the blue one on the left some time ago. I used some blue handmade paper, white lace and little silk flowers. I just made the one on the right today. My husband had given me the pretty lady figurine when we were first married. She had a run in one day with my son's ball. I tried to repair her with some glue and if you didn't look too close.....well. When I was unpacking her from our last move it seems she had broken again? The crafter in me couldn't bring myself to throw her away!! I had so much fun making the blue Tussy Mussy holder knew I wanted to make some more. I decided I should make one to put my pretty lady in!! I had bought two pink doilies a few months ago. I loved them, they were so delicate looking. I wrapped one of them around the velvet blue paper I used to make the cone shape. I made the lady a skirt of white tulle. Tucked her in the Tussy Mussy holder and added some vintage flowers I bought at a garage sale last summer. I think it is the perfect home for her!! Now I can enjoy her again!!!
