Home Etc #118

Things are starting to calm a little now the boys are doing full days at school.

I’m ploughing through my enormous to do list and beginning to feel as though I’m getting on top of things.

It’s a good feeling.

And I’ve been so distracted, that the fact the leaves have been turning — and the nights are drawing in — have *almost* gone unnoticed.

Not quite but almost.

Co-hosting Home Etc on a bi-weekly basis has definitely taken the pressure off too. To be honest, I’m wondering how on earth Jess I managed to host every week for so long!

Sharing the duties with Lins is lovely, I love seeing who she’s picked for her favourite post too.

Talking of which.

Favourite Home Etc Blog

Last week’s favourite blog post came from Pati at Style Squeeze.

Now, Lins and I are both suckers for a great tutorial and this ticked all the boxes!

Pati shared her brilliant DIY wooden tribal wall art/drinks tray. It’s SO fabulous — and the cleverest thing I’ve seen in a while. Totally loving the Aztec pattern she created.

I’m thinking I’d like to have a go myself but create a tabletop for a side-table maybe?

Watch this space!

Well done Pati and welcome to our little Home Etc community! Your name is in the running to win this month’s voucher from our fabulous sponsor  Laura Ashley.

For anyone wishing to share blog posts in this week’s linky, have a little read of our house 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’ POST which will always be the first entry 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.

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

As Lins and I will be sharing hosting duties now, just one favourite post will be chosen 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!


Thanks so much for linking up all your fabulous posts.  I look forward to reading more of the same this week!

Lots of love,
