Phoebe’s recent spring break was more like a staycation, since Mommy and Daddy both had to work. We did try to do something special every day though, to make it feel like a holiday. One of those special somethings was to go visit Jeb for lunch, and since he works for the Texas Legislative Council, he gave us a little tour of the nearby Capitol Building. I was surprised by some of the elaborate decorative details we spied during our visit.
Like this door hardware, for instance, featuring a Lone Star on the doorknob. At first I couldn’t believe they would spend the money doing custom doorknobs–even back in the day when art and craft were more highly sought after in construction–but after mentally calculating how many doors are probably in the Capitol Building, it stands to reason that there was a certain economy of scale.
