'When you saw the dog, my dear,' said my uncle, the Rector, to his wife, 'almost exactly, if I remember right, a year ago this month of November, what sort of size and colour was it, again? I remember it growled terribly on the top of the wall by ...

Cottage 3 Cottage Outside Decoration

Cottage 3 House And Cottage Furniture
