The Acorn Cottage {The Cupola}

There is no cottage complete without the installation of a cupola. Right? A cupola gives the cottage its signature look and style.
In architecture, a cupola is a relatively small, most often dome-like, tall structure on top of a building. Often used to provide a lookout or to admit light and air, it usually crowns a larger roof or dome.




Today is one of those days I have been wanting for when the contractor and his team installed the cupola atop the roof at the Acorn Cottage. The cupola certainly helps to give the house more curb appeal and strengthens the architecture. The copper roofing of the cupola will tie in well with the awning and Bevolo gas lantern. Stay tuned.

The Cupola, y'all!

The Acorn Cottage {Countertops}

There was more progress at the Acorn Cottage this week with the installation of the quartz countertops in the kitchen.




We chose the eternal Calcutta quartz by Silestone. The lightness of the countertops really brightens up the small kitchen. I am happy with how this turned out.






Countertops, y'all!

Science is a Beautiful Subject {Classroom Theme}

As many of you know, I am in my ninth year teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th grade science at an ISAS school in Lakeview, New Orleans. Each year I come up with a different theme. This school year, my theme is based upon Lacoste's slogan, "Life is a Beautiful Sport." The theme, "Science is a Beautiful Subject," is incorporated in many of my boards and displays. The alligator is a perfect symbol to reflect this south Louisiana science classroom. Our team of investi-GATORS are prominently displayed for all to see. Take a look at this year's classroom theme.
