Puppy In Training, and...

I have been diligently dedicated to training Mr. Darcy. You can see, we have our ups and downs. He still hates his crate, but he is making progress on "outside" duty training. Fortunately, he doesn't mind going out in the rain like I do. We may have this licked (no pun intended) in a week or two.
The visit to the Vet went well. He created quite a stir and everyone just fawned all over him, he sure didn't like that much, right! A few techs thought he looked like a stuffed animal, "Where'd you buy that nose, Hobby Lobby"?  Maybe I will add a "Henry Darcy Doglet"(what he is called at home) to my stuffed repertoire!  He was a complete show off, rolling his eyes and licking everything and everybody in sight. Darcy did not even notice the shot, once they put the meat baby food in front of him.

I was able to get the second slipcover finished, now I need to do some painting. The weather today and through the weekend looks promising, so maybe I can complete a few more projects. Lauren's lamps have been painted with "oil rubbed bronze" paint and I am very pleased with the outcome. I ran out of paint, so I still have to finish one lamp harp. One of the candle covers broke so I will replace it. Lampshades and cord covers(in bronze silk), will be next. So far, so good. I will be looking for the right size drum shades as I feel this will update the feel of these lamps. The pumpkin colored lamp is not as bright as it appears in this picture. In front of the lamps is a brass candelabra, I picked up for $5 at ReHouse, a salvage shop in town. The picture isn't great just a pile of things accumulating in the living room, ready to bring to Lauren's next week. I will post the lamps again when they are finished.
