The Power of Serendipity When Creating Your Home with Melissa Jenkins
Melissa Mary Jenkins is a Canadian watercolor and mixed media artist who also makes her own inks from plant materials she grows or forages on her rural property. In our conversation today, we talk about the art of layering colors, materials, moods...both in art and in our rooms. We also share the same passion regarding serendipity: you must slow down to make room for it. And you need to make room for it because that's when the magic happens. If you want to create a home that truly reflects who you are, it's going to contain all of the layers of your life. And to do that, you can't just go to one shop on one weekend and outfit your home. Sometimes you gotta wait for the gems to come across your path. Which means, always being on the lookout for the unexpected.

Today’s guest was Melissa Jenkins, Program Coordinator of Operation Catnip, located in Alachua County, Gainesville, Florida. Operation Catnip recently celebrated 20 years of service to the cat community. Along with their dedicated students, volunteer veterinarians and community volunteers they have helped to care for more than 56,000 cats since their inception in 1998. We learned a lot today about the mission of Operation Catnip. Their life-saving work improves the lives of cats and the communities they live in. They are committed to a number of initiatives including the spaying, neutering and vaccinating of free-roaming (community cats), preventing the birth of kittens, mentoring other programs around the country and training veterinarians to save America’s cats.
