Color therapy needed

Is there such a thing as beginning-of-summer-blues? I mean sort of spring-tiredness but later than usual. I have had the symptoms (I'm tired, restless, can't focus, start things but find it hard to complete anything) for a week or so now, and everything seems a bit blaah. I am sure it's the weather too (rain, wind, cold, gray), after two fantastic summers this feels so wrong. And it might also be that I just need a break, a holiday of some sort, to get my mind clear from everything I've stored in there, and to get back to the happy creativity-route again. But this is enough of moaning, there have been happy moments too lately, and some instantly helping color therapy too:

While searching some fabrics a few days ago in a local thrifstore I found these colorful little frames. They needed just a little TLC to be used again. The colors of the frames were quite "me" with some bright oranges and yellows, and they suited my HandmadebyMia-art just great. Or what do you think?
 
Yellow frames (tiny but just enough for these arts) just had to get a happy bee and a smiling cat with matching yellow bow. Just had. And the green...
...is for the Lily of the Valley naturally. The Lilies are opening here too slowly but surely, and the smell is divine, and  I would like to take a nap lying next to them just like the little tweet above. And last but not least were the orange frames...
There's one little birdie holding a flower and then there's the owl. The last orange frame had some tiny dents in it, and I first thought of tossing it but decided to try it after all. And look at that hoot! He's definitely looking a bit guilty like he would have been pecking those marks... And he ended up staying it that frame.
 
These just made me smile so wide, that all of the sudden everything started to seem a bit brighter and sunnier. I decided to put some of these little guys up to my shop to brighten your days too! So anyone feeling a little blue, take a peek and you'll be smiling again!

Happy first week of June!

Yours,
Mia

Hi Vivienne,

Thank you! And I thought you might like the cat, there would have been a bunny too but the frames were to little for the pretty ears :)

I am trying to get some rest, it's wonderfully Friday again tomorrow!

Hi Mia, it has been that sort of weather here too and today the wind has been gale force and more typical of November than June. We all need some sunshine to cheer us up but whilst we wait your sunny frames have done just that! SO sweet. Take care and have a lovely weekend,

Hi Mia, what a lucky find, they are so very you and work wonderfully with your pictures inside, I especially like the little cat! I know how you feel about the blues, I took a few weeks off sewing and worked in the garden and painted rooms instead, it has made a big difference as I'm back sewing now and feel quite enthusiastic again. Hope you feel sunnier soon! Bethx
