Melody's Musings

Stuff that catches my fancy and random, sorted thoughts from the inner scrambles of my mind.

What you may expect to find here are what I consider good taste and some of the best in photography, philosophy, humor, art, architecture, food, music, poetry, literature and dance. I hope you like some of the things I enjoy.

I like anything to do with good design such as interior design, architecture, photography, and art. I enjoy philosophy and psychology. I love to figure out what makes individuals tick. Music of most all types but particularly classical, world, pop, acoustic guitar is a big part of my life and add some dance to the music and my day is great! I like to write and occasionally I will write poetry and I really love to read it out loud and I even record it sometimes.

I'm a Myers-Briggs type ENFJ which means I love people and have a great interest in them.

I guess you could say I'm a humanities kind of person. :)

     Dog Days and Nights 
Help your pampered pooch rest easy in this bed made from an old chair. Cut the back and front legs from the chair and discard the rest. Measure the width of the chair back, and build a frame out of inexpensive pine boards or plywood. Attach the chair back to one end of the frame and the legs to the opposite end using wood glue and screws, then prime and paint it a unifying color. Add a washable cushion or dog bed.

    Take a Seat
Drive through any neighborhood on trash day and you’re sure to find a beat-up chair or two. Rescue the sturdy ones with sandpaper, primer, and paint. Re-cover the seat by cutting fabric 3 inches larger all around and attaching it with a staple gun. For extra flair, embellish the chair back with rub-on lettering.
