My Artist Friend takes on MacKenzie-Childs!

I can't begin to tell you how talented my friend is.
She not only paints, she sews, does professional embroidery, and has a
garden so gorgeous and amazing it should be in a magazine.
Today, I'm showing you a table she was commissioned to paint for
 her client, in the style of artist Mackenzie-Childs.
Initially she was commissioned to paint a floor rug for the client's summer cottage. 
Well, the client liked it so much, she also wanted a table! 
Here is the table still in her workshop
She is a perfectionist, as you can see, and the detail is amazing.
Can you imagine the patience and time this took? 
All safely delivered to the client's summer cottage!
Look how fabulous they are together.
This gives you a great look at the painted floor rug also.
She is an incredible artist!
She did not do the chairs, they are part of the Mackenzie-Childs line.
Retail is about $1,800 per chair! 
If you are not familiar with Mackenzie-Childs, their website is worth a look.
I'm going to send a link for this post to my friend, so be sure to leave
a nice comment.  I know she'll appreciate it.
