Tune Tuesday

Hey friends!

I hope you all have had a lovely weekend crafting and whatnot. This weekend, I dedicated myself to working on some cross-stitching projects, including a cute, little fox and some adorable mushrooms. And it's truly an amazing coincidence because today's Tune Tuesday is brought to you by one of the most adorable collections I have ever beheld, Indian Summer!

With its cute, little forest animals and adorable native influence, I introduce to you the Forest Friends playlist!

Explore the wilderness with this joyful playlist, beaming with the likes of Imagine Dragons, The Lumineers and Arcade Fire. With songs that capture youth, happiness, and sweet indie-folk sounds, Forest Friends will definitely bring a smile to your face and have you think back on the days where you would build forts with bed linens & run around the yard with your friends, playing tag!

For more music inspired by this playful collection, check out our Spotify playlist!

Feel free to subscribe to the playlist to add your own songs that embody youth & carefree fun or let us know which songs we should add in the comments below!

Have a great rest of the week and a Happy 4th of July!

From my musical ears to yours,
