Circlet

Here is the two-sided circlet that my brother made for me, for my wedding day. The leaves are all native to Scotland (The Man corrects me when I, as a folklorist and anthropologist, occasionally absentmindedly say ‘indigenous’) and, on the underside of each leaf, is a different character by Tove Jansson, created for the Moomin books.

Snufkin with the pipesmoke is certainly a contender, though.
