It all started at the fountain…….

 

Just the rules peeps.

A close up in all it's glory.

Come and find it!!
Come and find it!!
I just want to sit on that ledge!

I just want to launch a penny in there! #goodluck

This fountain actually has a crazy story attached to it.  Joe and I met in October of 2004 and it was love at first site…..BUT the summer of 2004 I was actually walking down Passyunk Ave enroute to some adventure and I saw Joe and the guys working on the fountain.  Joe’s cousin was actually contracting Colossus Granite to fabricate the fountain ledges and wrap.  I worked with Joe’s cousin at the time and Joe’s Uncle was my landlord.  When Joe’s cousin yelled “Hey Kat!  What’s up?” I remember seeing Joey and waving hi.  Who would have thought that on that day I would be waving to my future husband, father of our children and future business partner….  Who would think that the company that was installing the essential pieces to the long awaited East Passyunk Fountain would be mine one day…  Life is crazy.  Just don’t sweat the small stuff…embrace what’s infront of you and own any actions you take.

 

The stone in this application is simply 3cm Absolute Black.  It has been installed for 10 years through all the elements and look how it has held up!!  Amazing!  Granite is durable people!!  It’s the surface that just keeps giving back!
