5.4


(Rosy Posy stamps and icon dies, FlauntersAll Year Cheer)



Pineapples were so rare a sight in the 1700’s they were a symbol of wealth. The few that were cultivated in hothouses were worth about five thousand pounds ($8000) each. They weren’t eaten, but were rented out by the aristocracy as a table centerpiece at dinner parties.
