Home Etc 158 | January Edition {Happy new year!}

Happy Home Etc day! Our very first one for 2019. My lovely co-host, Lins, and I are delighted to welcome you back.

It’s been a pretty quiet start for me; both at home and on the blog. But I’ve got lots of plans bubbling away in the background; namely our house extension!

We met with our architect and the conservation lady from the council on Monday and — albeit I’m not going to rush out and start buying tiles yet — I’m cautiously optimistic.

I’m so excited to start sharing our plans on here.

But I don’t want to tempt fate and jump the gun so, until we have a positive outcome — and planning has been approved — I’ll keep it under wraps.

In the meantime, I’ve been keeping myself entertained by looking at all the lovely 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.

Please do use the #HomeEtc hashtag if ever you post any home-related content over on Instagram.

And for anyone who’d like to share blog posts in this month’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 and, in recent times, there has definitely been some link dumping and some posts have been given barely any comments.

We want to create a lovely community and commenting and sharing each other’s posts is all part of that.

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

Between us, we will pick one favourite post every month.

Happy new year everyone!!

Lins and Caro xx
