Laufer, Geraldine Adamich, OcKenga, Starr, Jamison, Chipp


Complete and informative. -Victoria magazine THE GRACEFUL ART OF SPEAKING THROUGH FLOWERS Originally called "talking bouquets" and "word posies," tussie-mussies are sweet-smelling and symbolic flower arrangements that Victorians exchanged in lieu of written greetings. Today Geraldine Laufer, a floral poet, revives the art of tussie-mussies and shows how to make them in this full-color celebration of craft, lore, and language. Step by step, TUSSIE-MUSSIES covers the delightful task of crafting individual flowers and herbs into a message, from how to cut the flowers and greens to finishing the handle and creating the holder. Then Ms. Laufer shares sixty of her favorite tussie-mussies. Declare ardent love. Say happy birthday. Welcome a newborn. Mark an anniversary. Honor a mentor. Send consolations-the flowers say it all. GERALDINE ADAMICH LAUFER is a noted horitculturist, garden-circuit lecturer, and a columnist for Herb Companion. She is the Public Relations Manager for the Atlanta Botanical Garden and has a business making tussie-mussies.Laufer, Geraldine Adamich is the author of 'Tussie-Mussies: The Victorian Art of Expressing Yourself in the Language of Flowers' with ISBN 9781563051067 and ISBN 1563051060.
