Melissa is a true entrepreneur and is just so fun. Her bubbly enthusiasm for life is contagious. She has a beautiful old home she painstakingly renovated and I was lucky enough to visit overnight. Among Melissa's many activities are holding a City Council Seat, landlord to multiple properties in a college community, caterer, a family/relationship counselor practice, travel the globe..AND she has a big heart for the furry critters (SPCA).
I was invited to come to her SPCA fund raiser and we had a ball ! Great food, silent auction, wine tasting and karaoke. Those small town folk really know how to throw a great party! It was supposed to last from 7-9 p.m., but the real party-er's stayed until 2:00 a.m. and it was the HIT fundraiser of the year! Above is the pretty bedroom I had the pleasure of staying in.
Aren't the pink, green, and black colors used just perfectly in this cozy little reading corner?
Here's a little corner decorated just so perfectly !
The bathroom was just a gorgeous. For an old house this was the largest bathroom EVER! The pretty white and black tile set the tone and the green and rose theme was carried throughout.
A built in niche is a great place to host all sorts of pretties! And did I mention Melissa major in Home Economics in College and can sew ANY kind of curtain, pillow, etc that you could dream up!?!? Don't the striped curtains with the fringe balls look sweet?
Check out the VERY COOL tile floor in this view of the bath.
And since we were raising money for animals I couldn't help but include these pictures of baby horses and their family. As you may know, Huntsville, TX has several prisons in and around the city. Many of them raise agriculture to feed the prisoners and as a source of income. One prison raises horses and I always love to drive by. It's such a pretty, picturesque scene.
This is the resident cat....wet from a morning rain and overlooking the back yard where the previous evenings SPCA soiree was held. I think she's still tired from staying up until the wee hours of the night...what do you think?
