Beautiful carpet, lovely suit being worn and, although the dog does not look too pleased withe prospect of trotting out in the snow, he/she is abolutely glorious. A wonderful scene

I embroidered the stair carpet many years ago and glued it down. It does get rather dusty...

Gorgeous scene!

But should she not have baked the pudding herself and have it well wrapped up somewhere, maturing nicely for Christmas? ;-)

What a glamorous Grecon housewife! What a lovely hall and stair carpet too.
