113 weeks and 2 days | Launching a new linky — Home Etc

So, I think it’s fair to say that I like my home stuff.

Interiors, exteriors, house prettying, garden makeovers, upcycling, crafting  and DIY — I love it all.

I’ve always obsessively read interiors magazines and watched home related tv programmes and whilst my blog will always talk about the number one love in my life — my family — the second love is most definitely all things home etc.

So it seems perfectly fitting that this should be the name of the brand new linky that I’m going to be hosting with one of my best blogging buddies —Jessica — who writes the fabulous blog mummyofboygirltwins.

Jess is also a self-confessed home and interiors addict and we have decided to join forces and set up a home inspired linky together.  She’s sure to be posting lots of lovely house and garden related features, in the coming months, because she and her beautiful family are picking up sticks and will be moving, in the not too distant future! Exciting!

As from next Wednesday at 6.00am you’ll be able to link up with us  — here’s our lovely new badge :)


What do you have to do?

You can link up to two home, interiors or garden related posts each week. These can include tutorials, crafted items, up-cycled items, wish-lists or trends. Basically, if it’s related to your home in any way, we welcome you to join us!

Just pop along to either my blog — or Jess’ blog — grab our badge code and pop it at the footer of your post. Then hop back to our blog and add the URL link to the post. Simple!

If you tweet us using the hashtag #HomeEtc, Jess and I will retweet (RT) your posts wherever, plus share via Instagram and pin them to Pinterest.

If you’re unsure how to join a linky then please contact me caro@thetwinklediaries.co.uk or on twitter @twinklediaries and I will walk you through the process.

What are the benefits?

Jess and I will endeavour to comment on all the posts linked up each week. You will also (hopefully) find some fantastic, inspiring posts to read and if everyone is generous with their comments, it will be a lovely, happy place to come and link-up. It’s all about sharing the love, after all!

Can I link up old posts?

Yes, yes and YES! Definitely — give your old posts an airing — dust them down and show them off. Recycling is all the rage you know ;) We’d love to read them.

Meet our sponsor…

Finally I am delighted to announce that HomeSense are sponsoring the HomeEtc linky! Awesome eh? This fabulous homeware chain is one of our favourite shops and we are delighted and totally thrilled that they are sponsoring us. Each month we will select our favourite post and the blogger responsible will win a crisp, shiny voucher to spend at a HomeSense store!


The #HomeEtc linky opens on Wednesday 20th May. Hope to see you there!

Love from Caro & Jess x

    1. Thanks so much Sarah. There really seemed to be a huge gap as far as homes/interiors linkies were concerned. Maybe because it’s not a popular subject, who knows?! But at least Jess and I will have somewhere to put our posts!! LOL!! :)

  1. Great idea – I don’t write much about home so this is a good incentive to start doing so… I’m sure I’ll have plenty of wish list and dream house content to contribute :)

  2. I can’t wait! I’m obsessed with my home nearly as much as my blog & having a linky like this will encourage me to write more home inspired posts. #TwinklyTuesdays

  3. congrats, very exciting for you. Happy to help you promote, and will tweet it for you right now xx #Twinkly Tuesday

  4. How exciting. I also love the badge. I’d really love to link up but my house permenantly looks like crap and we’re broke so probbably not mch Home and Interiors fodder there for a while. I will enjoy reading the posts though! #TwinklyTuesday

  5. Can’t wait for this! Am ready to join in tomorrow and I’m thinking this will inspire me to write more homey posts! I just need some money to do some stuff in the house hehe!! Hope lots of our Twinkly Tuesdayers come and join you :) xx

  6. This linky sounds fab, I am moving house on Friday (argh)so have a lot of wish lists on the go :)
    #Twinkly Tuesday xx

  7. What a great Linky idea, and love the new badge, sadly we don’t post much on “home” but will try to remember when we do.

    1. Aaah I’m SO pleased to hear that Sabrina!! :) It’s so lovely to find more interior-philes to link in with! I absolutely LOVE reading home/garden posts — this is a dream linky for me! Shame I can’t win the HomeSense voucher myself!! ;)

  8. Good luck with the linky!!! I won’t be participating – house stuff is my Achilles heel! When I bought my current house, my friend Julie came and essentially told me where to put all the furniture and how to use the storage!

    Thanks for being such a wonderful (and harshness-supportive!) co-host for #TwinklyTuesday.

Please leave me a comment — I love hearing from you!
