Insta Friday: Fun During Summer Hours

I have had the great privilege of having "summer hours" since the beginning of July. I get to work 7-5 Monday through Thursday and 8-12 on Fridays. I may not seem like much, but for this working girl, it has made every Friday seem like a little micro vacation. I have really tried to go and do something that I might not usually have time to do. For instance, today, I visited my favorite vintage shopping area in Maryland, Ellicott City! Here's a little piece of what I saw, via Instagram pictures. (If you have an iPhone and you haven't discovered Instagram, you don't know what you're missing!! It's free and fun!) The first friday of every month, Ellicott City has a free concert. How cute is this chalkboard sign? Check out this darling window display at an antique store. It makes me want to go on a road trip! (Perhaps next Friday???) Some words to live by...
If only I lived closer to my nephew, Jack, this toy tractor would be coming his way. So cute! (And check out the Babar "rocking horse" in the background. What a classic!)
And this made my think of my twin nieces. A shell dollhouse!! I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for a fixer upper for when my nieces get a little older. They would love something like this! And the crafter in me would love this for a project!

If I had an outdoor space, I don't think I could have resisted these metal rainboot planters...
