82: End of the Week

The only change here is that the sun has been adhered, and the tiles scrubbed with a little vinegar, which removes the gray haze from the thinset adhesive.

Fall is done! Detail below is the same one from yesterday which grass background filled in.

Summer with two details below. Very little left to fill in on this piece. 

Winter after just two days. I am really amazed and impressed at how quickly this one came together. Moon and bat details below. Spring is set at sunrise, Summer at midday, Fall at sunset and Winter, as you see here, is set at night.

One more exciting outcome of this project for me has been that at least two of the parent volunteers have really taken to cutting and laying the mosaic tiles. It's so satisfying to be able to share and maybe even pass on a little of my love for working in this art form.

I'll be heading back in for a couple mornings next week to help grout, and my husband is building a beautiful sunflower motif bridge to be installed in the school's courtyard garden. Keep your eye out for more updates!


  1. Just when I thought I couldn't love this project more, winter is making me swoon-y.

    If you ever want a volunteer...*ahem*...;)

  2. Wow! This is amazing. So pretty, Johannah <3

  3. this whole project IS perfectly swoon-y!

  4. Thank you all so much! I'm really touched by the way so many people seem to be moved by this community project. <3
