Home Etc #1 — Home and Garden Inspired Blog Hop

Welcome to the very first edition of HomeEtc!

My co-host Jess — from mummy of boy girl twins — and I are absolutely delighted to be starting this little blog hop.

As self confessed home and interiors addicts we were struggling to find many places to share our favourite home related posts, so thought we’d create our own!

Home Etc is a little weekly linky club for bloggers to share any posts that include interiors, garden or allotment, DIY, crafting and upcycling ideas — basically if it’s home related, we welcome you to join in and link up with us.

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 a couple of 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.

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 voucher from our fabulous sponsor!




We’re so excited to be hosting this homely little blog-hop and are looking forward to reading your posts. The linky portal is open until 11.58pm on Saturday, so lots of time to link up.

Lots of love,

Caro & Jess x

    1. Thanks so much Jenna :) There seemed to be a real gap… not sure whether people are just not that into their interiors but looking at all the lovely posts we’ve had link up with us, I’m starting to think that can’t be true! ;)

  1. Fab new linky – thanks for hosting – can’t wait to have a read of these posts. Have linked up with my ultimate playroom post x

  2. What a brilliant idea for a linky! Congratulations on its launch! I’ve linked up my humorous DIY one but in future would like to add more interiors-y ones. Good luck with it! x
