In this post, I showed you the conservatory we had painted in October, but I haven't yet showed you the completed "gallery" of paintings by Dave's grandmother, Dorothea Storey Kelsey. Besides three in the living room, we gathered all her paintings in our possession into this one space, and I love it.

in this photo. It looks great with all the wood frames.
We had a gathering at our house for friends this past Friday. Yes, it was a Christmas party, but in a university town, if you want to have a Christmas party, you have to do it before everyone scatters for Christmas break, even if it means having it in Advent. Last year we had not yet gotten to know anyone well enough to even have a party, so we are happy that we've built more connections and made more friends in the intervening year. A true blessing.
