I neglected to post this photo I took this summer - Rancourts in their natural habitat (the coast of Maine).
This is really nice - I've been thinking of having something very similar made, and it's good to see they did such a nice job. If you don't mind me asking, how much did this set you back?
 This is all I've got right now - but overall I think they did a nice job with the buttonholes.

Fortunately, my...
