Home Etc is a little weekly blog-link, started by my good friend Jess and I, back in May 2015.

Home Etc is the perfect place for bloggers to share any posts that include interiors, garden or allotment, DIY, crafting and upcycling ideas — basically, if it’s home or garden related, we welcome folk to join in and link up with us.

Over the last couple of years, we’ve created such a lovely community of interior and garden-mad bloggers.

This has now crossed over to Instagram too, where the #HomeEtc hashtag has a growing following and a lovely community of folk — and not necessarily bloggers either — regularly tag pictures of their homes or gardens.

In July 2017, Jess finally stepped down from hosting and passed the baton to Home Etc regular — and one of our favourite home and lifestyle bloggers — Lins from Boo and Maddie.

Lins and I now share hosting duties on a bi-weekly basis.


1) If you’re linking up on-line 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 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.

4) By linking up you give us permission to use images from your blog if featured. You also allow us to add you to our mailing list, to receive the occasional update or reminder.

Depending on who’s hosting, be sure to tweet — @twinklediaries or @booandmaddie  with the URL to your post, using the hashtag #HomeEtc and Lins or I will always retweet (sometimes both of us if you’re lucky)! ;)

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


The linky portal is open from 6am each Wednesday until noon on Friday.
