I woke up yesterday with a beaming smile, thanks to perfect summer weather and the fiance lying next to me. (He's back home from the road again, with no tour bus in sight for two whole weeks!) As I sat down to work, I was instantly transported back to those final days of the school year. Remember those days? When all you could do was stare out the window at the sunshine and count down the minutes until the bell rang, when you could finally escape to sweet, glorious early summer freedom? I got a little work done, but finally caved to the temptation and decided to play hooky via a little field trip to our favorite vintage shop.
This store is insane: 10,000 square feet of antique and thrifty goodness, full of everything from 1920s hat boxes to endless bins of vinyl records to brightly colored Fiestaware. I was a little sad to see my favorite vintage camera vendor's booth replaced with antique guns (boo!), but still scored some great finds: an old linen table runner, a 1960s yellow flower brooch, an old Swedish tile for my stepmom, and a lovely powder blue 1950s handbag.
Today it's back to business as usual, but the sun beaming through my window is awfully hard to resist. Maybe I'll take a 3/4 day today.
What about you? Any exciting plans for the day?
