Potted houseplants have been a documented part of human existence since the days of the Egyptian Pharaohs.  During world voyages by Europeans, many new exotic plants were discovered and brought back to home countries where they were displayed in the homes of the wealthy or nobility. Cacti in Bloom

The Victorians attempted to bring their favourite plants indoors to try to keep their beauty year round. Until well into the 19th century, the average American home was too dark and cold to support plant life.The Civil War era in North America saw parlours adorned with beautiful green plants. It was not until glass windows and heated rooms became more prevalent that houseplants could be grown to any degree. African Violets

The art of beaded flowers began around the 15th century, in the courts of the European aristocracy. Peasants would gather and save discarded beads and wire from dressmakers. They would then use the beads and wire to make flowers for beaded floral arrangements. These arrangements were then sold as altar sprays for churches, bridal bouquets, and burial wreaths for the wealthy. Bouquets of this era still exist in castles and homes today. Viola Adunca
