I thought it might be time for a new playlist. I’ve been putting together a Songs for Spring acoustic-inspired playlist for a couple of weeks now, and I’m finally ready to share it.
If you’ve been following my playlists for a while now, you know that the folk/singer-songwriter/acoustic genre is high on my list of favorites. I never know how to properly name these types of playlists because they combine many kinds of songs and then some. Hopefully, if you enjoy my playlists, you’ll know what I mean.
I’ve been coming back to this playlist a lot lately. This might seem weird since it’s not full of upbeat, mood-boosting tunes. To me, the music on this playlist is like a hug. It’s comforting. It mellows me out. It relaxes me. And although a lot of the songs are slow, I don’t find them “sad.” I guess it’s one of those things that if you get it, you get it.
So, if you are looking for some new music or if you like the music that often accompanies my Instagram stories, then be sure to give this playlist a listen. (Details are at the end of this post.) I hope you enjoy it. It’s my way of reaching through your screen and providing you with a comforting hug right now.
And, if you like music like this, I’ve started another playlist. I’m creating my Ultimate Folk/Acoustic Playlist. I have shared over 35 playlists with you on the blog but just realized I’d never created an ultimate playlist of the music genre that I love so much – a playlist that runs for hours and covers my absolute favorites. Well, I finally started it today. Since it’s still new, it’s quite limited so far. However, I thought I’d tell you about it now in case you want a head start in following along. You can watch as the playlist grows. It’s going to be a good one! You can find that playlist HERE.
I also should mention that in this post I’m sharing pictures of a small project I completed this past weekend. A couple of months ago I found this large wood caddy. I loved that it was raw wood, but it felt unfinished and out of place no matter where I put it. So, I decided to give it a new life with a coat of Fusion Mineral Paint in Champlain. This was a quick and easy fix. (I love Fusion Mineral Paint because in most circumstances it requires no sanding to apply and requires no finishing coat.)
Once the caddy was dry, I styled it in my family room with a candle, fresh local flowers I had delivered, and my remotes. Voila!
It’s been a hot minute since I did something craftsy like this, and it felt so good. It was icing on the cake that the project turned out well.
Anywho, I think that’s it for today. You can find my new Songs for Spring Acoustic Playlist HERE. I’ve also included the Spotify widget below. However, it’s my understanding that you can only sample the songs using the widget.
No matter where or how you listen, I hope these songs add joy to your day, wrap you in comfort, and help you discover new artists and music. Happy listening!
