DIY Hall Of Fame Series

I hope everyone is having a great week.

For a while now I have been thinking of doing a series to pay homage
to all the talented bloggers that keep us inspired with their fabulous projects.

Welcome to the first post of the DIY Hall Of Fame series. 

I knew immediately I would first feature a very talented lady that
 constantly amazes me with her creativity.  Take a  look and I am
sure you will agree.

I am excited to induct my friend Gayle @ Miss Kopy Kat  into the DIY Hall of Fame.

DIY Coral and starfish!

How to make a painting from a print.

Have you ever seen a more amazing Halloween Display?

Pretty Fall mantle.

These are just a few of the amazing projects you will find when visiting
  Miss Kopy Kat.   I know Gayle would love for you to drop by and let
her know you saw her featured at No Minimalist Here.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoyed this first DIY series. I
haven't decided how often I will be posting this series. It may be weekly,
monthly or whenever the inspiration strikes.  For now I am just going to
play it by ear. 

Have a fun Memorial Day weekend!

Open House Party

Welcome to the Open House party.
Thank you to everyone that joined the party last week!

I have another beautiful home for you to tour this week.  Janette
writes the lovely blog The 2 Seasons , with her daughter Jordon.  She
is an empty-nester living with her husband in Lexington, KY and has
recently downsized to this great townhouse downtown.  I know you
will enjoying seeing Janette's pretty home.

Enjoy the tour...

Lulubelle's painting takes center stage in the kitchen.

Love the brick walls and floor of this sun room.

Such a pretty walled courtyard.

Thank you Janette for sharing your beautiful home at the Open House party!

Please visit The 2 Seasons blog and let Janette know you saw her home featured
at the party.

Girls Weekend At Lucketts

What a fun weekend! 
If you put four ladies together that love
to shop and eat you can't help but have a great time.

Friday we arrived in Leesburg and went straight to the cutest
french cafe for lunch on the patio and then we hit all the wonderful
antique shops in the historic area.  Several of the shops have been
featured in Romantic Homes.

Saturday we were one of the first ones in line for Lucketts Spring Market
  There was a really long line by the time the gates opened.

First, we headed to the Design House to beat the crowds.  This is a two story
home on Lucketts property which they beautifully decorate each room
with items for sale.  Below are photos of this months Design House.

I believe there were 175 vendors set up outside and among them were some
 of my blogger friends including  Marian @ Ms Mustard Seed, Connie 
I was so excited to finally meet Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co  though I was
disappointed that I never found Kathy @ All About Vignettes  tent.

Can you believe I didn't get a single picture of any of the ladies?

I have to get pictures of what I bought and I'll be back to show
you later. 

Thanks to Lynn @ The Vintage Nest,  Debbie and  Kathy for such
a fun weekend!

Open House Party

Welcome to the Open House party!
The link to join the party is at the bottom of this post. 
Today we are heading to the wonderful city of New Orleans. I am really
excited to be featuring the gorgeous home of Ron at The Uptown Acorn . 
Ron has such great style and I know you will love this tour.   I like anything
beachy so I am especially fond of the coastal paintings and seashell decor
he has used so beautifully in his home. 

Enjoy the tour...

What wonderful porches on his home!

Did you notice the numbered stairs?

Breakfast room

To see more of this beautiful home you can visit Ron's blog HERE.   I hope you will
visit  The Uptown Acorn and let Ron know you enjoyed seeing his home at the
Open House party.
