I was asked by a customer if I would consider making a “Tussie Mussie”. My answer was “What is a Tussie Mussie, I have never heard of that?” – In the 1700’s, when regular bathing and indoor plumbing was uncommon, the tussie mussie became popular. A tussie mussie (also spelled tussy mussy) is a small bouquet (nosegay) of fragrant herbs and flowers. During this time, elegant ladies carried tussie mussies to mask the odors around them. Smaller tussie mussies were often worn on the lapel to mask body odor.
So Here we have a Mesh Tussie Mussie for our Builders.
