Meet Yvette and her Beautiful Hat. Well, her real name is Yvette et son Beau Chapeau, and she is the loveliest little paper puppet I've ever seen. Although I can't say I've seen many lately. After finding her at Renegade Handmade, Joe tucked her safely into his suitcase and toted her all the way from Chicago so she could come live on my desk.
The super talented and whimsical, Canada-based Pin Pals made her. They also happen to make a great many other wonderful things. Wander on over to their blog and Etsy for a gander at some really lovely stuff. I'm enamored with their cross-stitched brooches, and I think Yvette might need un ami, like Chad avec ses Frites!
