Needing some pretty in my day

No particular reason why,
I just need some bright colors today.
Some pretty flowers.
A couple of free paperdolls with bright colors.

not a place."

A scientifically proven way to help relieve depression:
wear bright colors

I really think I have shared these paperdolls before, but I don't have it noted
so here are some fun, bright and summery paperdolls for you to play with:

This is an incomplete set, as there are clothes for 2 more dolls (Kate and Kerry)that I don't have the dolls to go with them.
Also, I'm thinking there are probably more clothes that go with the original set too....
If you have a complete set and would like to send me the missing bits -
that would be great!
I got these from OrigamiBears I believe.

Because I love animals so, I have to include this photo of
an adorable English Sheep Dog from the Netherlands:

I love the handkerchief hem over the underlying lacy skirt.

Cherry blossoms

Feel happier?
a bit more cheerier?
I know I do!
See you soon!
