Good morning world! We’re halfway though another week and it’s time for another edition of Home Etc.
I was flying solo last week as my gorgeous co-host Jess — from mummy of boy girl twins — had moved house and was without wifi!! Horrors. Thankfully, the technology fairies have been round to her lovely new home and she’s now back in blogland.
My favourite post from last week came from Sue who blogs over at Home Heart Harmony. You know how much I love a good upcycling project and her lovely post shows just what can be done with a bit of time, some patience and a couple of tins of paint!
It always makes me so happy to see all the different posts linking up — I love how creative people are and it’s so inspiring to see everyone’s different styles and tips.
I have exactly the same project in mind for my own dining chairs, funnily enough, which are painted in an insipid shade of cream. I’m desperate to give them a bit of an overhaul with some fresh white paint. Seeing what Sue has achieved has given me the incentive to (try to) make time to do it.
Jess’ favourite post came from Catherine who blogs over at Pushing The Moon.
Her post was full of brilliant tips and advice on how to make a rental property feel like a home. My boy and I went into rented accommodation after we’d sold our last house, to put us in a stronger position when a house we wanted to buy came on the market.
Initially, it felt a bit odd to be living in someone else’s house — after owning our own home for so long — but it wasn’t long before it felt homely.
Well done ladies — you’re now both in the running to scoop a voucher from our fabulous sponsor — HomeSense!
Thanks so much to everyone for supporting #HomeEtc.
Jess and I love all your home and garden posts and are so happy to see so many lovely bloggers linking up each week :)
All we ask is that you follow these 3 little rules:
1) Please include our lovely #HomeEtc badge at the bottom of your post.
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 two 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.
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 £20 voucher from our fabulous sponsor!
Psst… as well as HomeSense the voucher can also be spent in TK Maxx!
Thanks so much for linking up all your lovely home and garden inspired posts. We look forward to reading more of the same this week! The linky portal is open until 11.58pm on Saturday, so lots of time to join in.
Lots of love,
Caro & Jess x
