Happy Thanksgiving

Click on image to enlarge
Thanksgiving Day (Jour de l'Action de grâce in Canadian French) is a national holiday celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. Several other places around the world observe similar celebrations. It is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States and on the second Monday of October in Canada. Thanksgiving has its historical roots in religious and cultural traditions, and has long been celebrated in a secular manner as well.

Panther Pride Mosaic 2013








Click on photos to enlarge
Hello Everyone! Here are photos from the installation November 1 - 3. We were so lucky to have three days of perfect weather. Everyone is thrilled with the mosaic. We now have to fabricate the outer "wedges" of background beige mosaic to cover the remaining cement. Feel free to use the photos as needed. We had a great group of volunteers and the One Step Method worked perfectly. Let me know if you have questions. Thanks! Julie

"Here's a couple of pics of a project I completed in Atlanta.  I used your 255 for its non sag properties to set the wall tile starting just below the black chair rail, and finished with your Permacolor on the floor and unsanded grout on the walls. All of the Laticrete products were purchased from Specialty Tile in Norcross, GA.    Thanks!"  Jeremy Perere
