The Little Round Table will be wearing green over the next week as we get
closer to St Patrick's Day.  I hope you'll drop by to add a bit of the Irish

  33. Thanks so much for all your lovely comments!

    I purchased my cottage from the Charleston Gardens catalog about 7 years ago. At the time I think it was the only one they carried. Now they carry a lot of different ones.
