The cupola…..

 

I have always loved cupolas with weathervanes……

About seven years ago my

 husband found a rooster weathervane while traveling for work.

It then sat in storage waiting for the perfect cupola.

Then one day Mr. Handy man saw an ad on Craig’s List for a roof steeple.

As it turns out it was a cupola with copper roof off an old barn.

We met the seller at an agreed upon church parking lot and I instantly saw the

potential so it came home with us!

After a little work Mr.Handyman installed it on the top of the

garage a couple of weeks ago and I absolutely LOVE IT….it was meant to be!

I really love it! It's the perect combination togehter. I bet that was a challenge to place on top of your roof too.

I love it and wish I could find one to put on top of hubby's garage so I could enjoy it from the sun room everyday.

I am sooooo envious. I have loved these for so long and would love one on our garage! Instead, I made one out of four old windows and have it in my garden. You can check it out here...http://foreverdecorating.blogspot.com/2011/05/making-of-my-garden-cupola.html

Deserae,
What a lovely rooster weathervane. I bet you smile every time you look at it sitting there on top of the garage. That's nice of your husband to do this for you.

love,
