Geaux Saints!

 Rooting for the home team! Geaux Saints!

I am keeping my support for the local team simple with a black and gold wreath sash embroidered with a fleur de lis and "SAINTS." Added to the preserved boxwood wreath, the sash makes the perfect statement.

The custom wreath sash was ordered from JansLookingGlass on etsy.

Geaux Saints, y'all!

My Classroom Theme {Classic Pennants}

 For those of you who did not know or did not remember, our school received quite amount of damage from Hurricane Ida back in 2021, so this summer after much planning, the science lab has received a much needed and long overdue renovation. I was fortunate to be asked my opinions on many of the needs and wants. The area of the space did not change, but just about everything that went into the lab is brand spanking new. All lab stations are new, and I love that each has electrical outlets as well as ample storage. All cabinetry is new. The addition of tall cabinets is a plus to me. A vented hood will allow the safe mixture of chemicals, and a shower and eye wash ensures safety in case of spills and burns.

Since the lab is painted in the school colors of blue and green, I opted for a more classic theme for the school year. Vintage-style felt pennants in various headings make for a classic design. I ordered each from NoxEmber on etsy. I love how each turned out. I also used the newly painted upper glass cabinets as display cabinets and for glassware.

Again, I teach Middle School Science - 6th grade Earth Science, 7th grade Physical Science, 8th grade Life Science. This is year 14 at St. Paul's Episcopal.

Take a look at this year's theme.

Back to School {Doorhanger}

 Though certainly not my favorite doorhanger to display, the back-to-school streetcar is perfectly New Orleans. By the time you are reading this post, I will be back for year 34, the last 14 spent at St. Paul's Episcopal School. I recently added the streetcar doorhanger to my vast collection. 

The doorhanger was purchased locally from Home Malone. There are two locations in New Orleans - one Uptown and one in Mid-City.

Back-to-School, y'all!
