Before, After and Before….

If you read Giving the Gift of Time, then you saw some pictures of how my gallery looked before we started painting it.  I said it before and I’ll say it again – A Diamond in the Rough!

Gallery before painting

When I counted all the colors in the room, the total was eight!  Yikes!  Now it’s down to two:

Gallery after painting walls and floor

And this is BEFORE I hang up 50 pictures that are waiting to be framed in.  Stay tuned for a glimpse into the beauty of Honningsvåg through the eyes of an American girl from the potato state.

And here’s a reminder of the amazing view I have:

      Thanks Helene. It’s a bit unreal that it is actually happening. Once I took the leap and decided it was time to go for it, things have been going very quickly. I would love it if you came to visit!
