It might seem odd.
But one of my favorite things about the Old State Capitol in Baton Rouge was the marble floor in the Ladies Room. The entrance had WOMEN engraved in it as you entered.
No question I was going into the right toilet!
It is a beautiful building. The Baton Rouge Old State Capitol.
Stained glass ceiling and rich old wood.
My eye was pleased everywhere I looked.
I am looking down from the top of the spiral staircase.
Every room is artistically done. You would be hard pressed to find the artisans who could reproduce the workmanship in this building. It is fabulous.
Imagine working in it everyday as was once the case. Shoes clicking importantly on the marble floors. I can imagine it. Women in smart dresses and men in suits.
One thing I wish we as a people would do, is to appreciate the beauty of the old buildings we have and keep them. We tend to tear them down and replace them with something "new" or "efficient" but not nearly as lovely. We need beauty for our soul.
That is the message I received from this exhibit. That women could find and create beauty from whatever was available.
Women know this! We need beauty for our soul.
A Friend and I went to the free exhibit titled "Our Quilted Past" but it is really about how our Grandmothers used Feed sacks for clothing as well as Quilts.
Our Quilted Past
An exhibit of quilts made from feed and flour sacks between 1925 and 1955 and the story of recycling cotton bags into household items.
February 1-28, 2014
Anyone who has ever held a needle in their hand would love this!
