Today's post is thanks to a flickr contact called Penwren. I am trying to track down more information about this elusive Brit. I would love to do an interview. Penwren hails from Brighton, Sussex in the UK. Why is it all of the flickr people I stumble upon and fall in love with seem to be English? Am I really that homesick for my beloved Snailwell?
Penwren has a great sense of color and a wonderful sense of humor as you can tell from this snap.
Thanks Penwren for the much needed color inspiration! If by some chance you are reading this please get in contact so my readers can find out more about you!
They are so subltle, so quiet. I think that I want to bring these colors into my home in bigger doses hoping those qualities will rub off on my family and myself. When I try, they get lost in fray. I just have to appreciate them in other's homes and photos and stick with what calls to me.....
I so wanted to use more purples, blues and pinks when painting our home this time. However after a few paint swatches went up on the wall I realized I need to use them in small doses to punch up the oranges, reds and yellows I love so much. Yet, when I look at this photo.....
When I feel overwhelmed with all of this painting and moving, I dream about loading everyone up and heading down to New Zealand to visit our friends Claire and Gerard (yes, C & G that is a threat!) . The adventure of a land unvisited calls to me. Besides, it is summer there now!

You all know by now this has become my motto over the past six months. I love that 'fede shop' on flicker used the caption "Motherhood" in association with this photo. I find it seems to apply to so many situations! By the way, I am now stalking 'fede shop' on flickr. You should check them out! It's summer in Austrailia, which is where they live and I think we could all use a little warm up right about now!
