Home Etc #140

Happy, happy springtime everyone!

OK, I *know* it still doesn’t feel very spring-like yet but the fact that it was the vernal equinox yesterday — and the clocks go forward this weekend — marks the end of a very, very long winter.

Hurray for that.

I’ve been keeping myself occupied looking at all the lovely ‘springy’ pics over on the Home Etc hashtag on Instagram.

I love how beautifully everyone’s images always sit together.

The grid below is made up of images from all different accounts — but just look how well they work alongside each other.

Definitely a sight for sore eyes and a lovely change from all the images of snow that have been peppering my feed for the last few months.

So nice to see some bright colours.

Home Etc Favourite

Last week’s Home Etc favourite came from one of our old regulars, Karen, who writes over at the blog ‘Well I Guess This Is Growing Up’.

She shared tips on how to paint a fireplace.

How totally gorgeous?! I have always loved Karen’s use of colour.

When she moved last year I felt a bit sad not to be seeing any more pics of the beautiful house she’d been sharing on #HomeEtc for more than a year.

But also excited to see how she puts her stamp on their new home.

This fireplace just goes to show that the new house is going to be just as incredible as the old one. Fabulous!

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

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.

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!


Our Monthly Winner

We’ve had so many fab blogs linking up over the last few weeks but I think my fave overall was Keira, who blogs at Dekko Bird with her gorgeous office/playroom makeover.

Well done Keira! You win a £20 voucher from our lovely sponsor, Laura Ashley.

Thanks everyone for linking up all your fabulous posts! And don’t forget to tag any home related pics on Instagram with the #HomeEtc hashtag too.

Lots of love,

Caro x

PS — as Lins is on holiday at the mo, I’ll be hosting next week as well!
