Home Etc #53

So we’re now into the second year of HomeEtc — it was so lovely celebrating our first birthday last week! Jess and I can’t believe how quickly the last year has flown by. It’s been fabulous, getting to know all the lovely bloggers that link up each week.

It’s brought together such a lovely little community of like-minded folk.

My co-host Jess — mummy of boy girl twins — and I are absolutely delighted to host Home Etc, a weekly linky club for bloggers to share any posts that include interiors, garden, DIY, crafting or up-cycling.

Basically if it’s at all home related, we’d love you to link up with us!

HomeEtc Favourites

We absolutely loved Jo’s post — Not a Frumpy Mum —  showing off her new baby’s nursery. It’s absolutely beautiful. Very calm and serene and she’s used one of my all time favourite wallpapers!


Such a lovely, lovely space for a little prince. I think he’ll have sweet dreams in there, once he arrives :)

Another favourite from last week cam from Clare at Maybush Studio.

She shared her son’s fabulous new workspace.



Such a fabulous use of a quirky space and I love, love LOVE the pops of colour. Particularly the amazing fluoro pink of the chair.

Well done to both of you — you’re now in the running to win this month’s voucher from our generous sponsor.

Thanks so much everyone, for linking in. Jess and I really, really enjoy reading all your posts!

All we ask is that you follow these 3 little rules:

1) Please include our lovely #HomeEtc badge at the bottom of your post.

The Twinkle Diaries


2) You may link up to two posts — new or old (sometimes the old posts are forgotten about, so please dust them down and show them off; we’d love to read them!)  — but no more than two posts each week please.

3) Please be kind enough to comment on your HOSTS’ POSTS which will always be the first two entries in the link up — plus a couple of others. Blog hops only work if you’re as generous with your comments as you are at sharing your posts.

Be sure to tweet —@twinklediaries or @soot1978 — with the url to your post, using the hashtag #HomeEtc and Jess or I will always retweet (sometimes both of us if you’re lucky)! ;)

Finally, Jess and I will pick one favourite post each week then at the end of the month we’ll choose an overall winner. This lucky blogger will receive a £20 voucher from our fabulous sponsor!


Psst… as well as HomeSense the voucher can also be spent in TK Maxx!

Thanks so much for linking up all your lovely posts. We look forward to reading more of the same this week! The linky portal is open until 11.58pm on Saturday, so lots of time to join in.

#HomeEtc the hashtag

Finally, Jess and I are thrilled that some of you lovely folk are using the #HomeEtc hashtag on Instagram! Please do join in – we would love you to use it too! 

Whenever you are on Instagram and posting anything home, interiors, DIY, craft & garden related please do use the #HomeEtc hashtag. We would love to see your Instagram photographs and give them some love! 

Lots of love,

Caro & Jess x
