Favourites - Late June to Late August 2017

So apparently having a job can make the other bits of your life go weird.
Therefore this weekend I am taking time to do stuff for me.
Baths, tidying my room / sorting my stuff, meeting friends, going for a drink, watching series in my PJs all day etc.
As well as that, I will be getting back into this blog thing. Not because I feel any sense of duty towards you [dear reader. ha], as I am almost entirely sure that nobody reads this. No, it's more because it's a form of therapeutic waffling and arranging pictures nicely on a page. "Brain dump"-ing, if you will. (Even though I really hate that term. But you get what I mean).
Today at dinner I had a mini epiphany, that perhaps the reason I like blogging is to do with others witnessing my existence. Does that make sense? Like something people often talk about relationships and the comfort of them, is that you witness each-other exist. You are because others see that you are. Maybe this is all too philosophical and I should leave it for another time.

So anyway, here is some waffle about the things I have been liking or thinking about this summer, which you may or may not like. Either way, it isn't really my problem. (ha)

Morag Taylor Textiles

My sister's friend from school studied art in Dundee and recently graduated in textiles. She has been making these gorgeous phone cases and I got one as soon as I could. Also her studio is gorgeous and I love all the other things she is making.
