‘I like’ Fridays, featuring macarons and watercolours.


Today I very much liked the macarons I was given by my lovely friend!  Yum yum!  Aren’t they the prettiest confection?  Beauties on the outside and tasty on the inside!

This fine Friday I have also been liking these things –

Starting a Sketchbook class with Lisa Congdon as recommended by the talented ladies at Squiggle and Swirl and TIny Rotten Peanuts.  I bought a brand new sketchbook, paints and brushes today which was very exciting!  I don’t think I have bought new watercolours since college. I can’t wait to get started.

This curry recipe from Beets and Birch is on my menu for next week.

Reading Frankie magazine, although I am about two issues behind Australia where the mag is published.  I still enjoy it, reading about summer when it is winter here and vice versa!

Finding some vintage treasures at Recycled Couture.  I scored a lovely Bill Blass floral skirt and a teal dress from the 1960’s which will be great over jeans.

These are some things I have liked this week, what have you been up to?

I am off to get some water for my paints and I shall conquer the first blank pages of that sketchbook!  See ya x

  1. oh look at you! thanks for sharing my recipe! 😀

    i have never had a macaroon. i’ve even been to france. pretty much a crime i know. so i keep thinking just wait for the next trip! what a fun class!!! i have journaled for years and sketched in the margin. i’m going to check out that class!

    • No problem, I can’t wait to try it! The sketchbook class is a good one and they have lots of other classes too.

      • I know, I got the info from someone on Instagram! I looked at her line drawing class too and now I want to do it all. NOW!

  2. Love those–so yummy. Will have to check out the classes but I can’t even draw a straight line (no I am not being modest) sounds like fun
