Happy birthday Home Etc!!
Incredible to think that when Jess and I published our first Home Etc posts on 20th May 2015 we’d be celebrating our 100th link up 2 year’s later.
When we first launched, I had no idea that it would still be going after a couple of years.
We initially created the linky to fill a gap; there didn’t seem to be anywhere to share home or garden related content with other like-minded bloggers, so Home Etc was born.
Two years on and we’ve been supported by two amazing sponsors; first HomeSense and now Laura Ashley.
Plus we’ve recruited two lovely co-hosts — Kerry who I’m hosting with this week; and Lins who’ll be hosting next week with Jess.
And best of all Home Etc has gathered together a fabulous community of influencers who join in both on the blog and/or over on Instagram using the #HomeEtc hashtag.
I love our merry little band of home-makers. It’s lovely to see the changes that people make to their homes throughout the seasons; I collate the Instagram images together occasionally — from the hashtag — and it’s always interesting to see the synchronicity and flow of everyone’s pictures.
HOME ETC FAVOURITES
A very quick mention of last week’s favourites; Hello Nancy — who shared her trip to my home-county and Rushton Hall — and Keira who blogs over at Dekko Bird with some divine hallway inspiration. Well done to both of you; your names are safely in the hat until normal service has resumed.
And just a quick message to all our other regulars to say hold on to your posts!
You’ll be able to link up as normal on 7th June. But for the next couple of week’s we’ve got something a little bit special in store.
Our ‘Home Etc One Hundred’ Laura Ashley Gift Card Competition
As we’re celebrating our centenary — we’re doing something a little different!
We’ve teamed up with our amazing sponsor Laura Ashley to offer one lucky winner a £100 gift-card to spend in their stores on online.
The competition will run for two weeks — until midnight on 7th June — so you’ve plenty of time to enter.
It’s super-simple too; to be in with a chance of winning just follow the instructions on Gleam competition generator below.
A lucky winner will be picked at random and emailed on 8th June.
Lots of love,
Caro and Kerry x
