A hand-held flower arrangement, the tussie-mussie became popular in medieval times and reached an obsessive fame a century ago. Laufer shows how to make 60 bouquets--tussie-mussies that declare love, happy birthday, happy anniversary, celebrate a newborn, honor a mentor, admit an infatuation, and more. Full color.
