Properly, Denton County Courthouse-on-the-Square.
This baby was built in 1896. Real old, y’all – and I love it. I cannot properly explain how giddy I get when I walk into old buildings, but I shall try. It feels magnificently invigorating to stand in a building that conceived by the minds of those that lived so long ago, and built . There is magic in history, and architecture is a major indicator of the times. In 1896, there was a lack of modern technology which resulted in things being hand-crafted. Masterpieces. People made this stuff by hand, y’all!!! Look ma, no computer generated mess! Oh, and don’t get me started on wrought and cast iron. #MostFavoriteThingOnEarth. Gah… I feel like I can’t go in depth enough to make y’all feel what I feel when I experience historic architecture. I’ma just share the pictures… Check out what I discovered in and around the historic Denton, TX courthouse-turned-museum. Love it, love it, love it *insert warm fuzzy feelings here.*

I ran into artist Levi Glassrock & purchased this small piece from him. It is nice to have a conversation with the artist where they can tell you their mindset and method.
& a Momma SQUIRREL!
