What's on the jukebox, Jo?

I've had a tonne of different songs on this week but today has to be a song or two about moving house as I'm helping my best friend move to a new city today.

Here are three of my favourite "moving" songs:

Moving by Pete and the Pirates

Moving by Supergrass

Moving by Jeffrey and Jack Lewis

Have a listen! Happy Friday, folks!

The set comes gift wrapped in a cute Adventures & Tea Parties gift box and is all ready to give as a present! The bow tie has a handy metal clip at the back, making it easy to clip on and allowing it to fit any neck size.

You can pick them up from my Etsy or NOTHS shops.

Handmade Christmas Cards

There are so many gorgeous, handmade Christmas cards out there that I could quite easily buy one for every day of the year! 

Being a huge fan and supporter of all those fellow small businesses, run by inspiring and incredible solo creatives, I thought I'd share some of my favourite handmade Christmas cards. 

Remember folks, behind these designs are hard working individuals, who do a tonne of work that often goes unnoticed. If you want to have such unique and beautiful designs to choose from then remember to buy handmade!

Happy Christmas card shopping!
