Home Etc #128

Happy Home Etc day everyone!

I wanted to kick of straight away with last week’s favourite post. It’s from Becky who blogs at Pinks Charming. She shared a fantastic tutorial, showing — in glorious Technicolor —  how to make winter wreaths with embroidery hoops and foliage.

I won’t show you all of the images (hopefully this little taster will persuade you to go and see the rest for yourself).

But suffice to say, for around 15 quid — I think you’ll agree — they’re an absolute bargain!

Such a gorgeous idea and the final pieces are so beautiful.

Pop over and have a read if you missed it.

It’s such a simple thing to make but absolutely gorgeous. Not just for Christmas either! Depending on what foliage and blooms you use, they could work all year round.

Well done Becky — your name is in the hat to win this month’s voucher from our fabulous sponsor  Laura Ashley.

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.

Thanks so much for linking up all your fabulous posts. 

Lots of love,

Caro x
