Home Etc #2 — Home and Garden Inspired Blog Hop

Welcome to the Home Etc linky — our home and garden inspired blog hop!

Our first week was such a success; lots of lovely bloggers linked up with their home and garden inspired posts. My co-host Jess — from mummy of boy girl twins — and I were so thrilled to see so many lovely blogs. I really hadn’t expected so many on the first week, so thank you so much to all of you that joined in :)

We had all sorts; everything from up-cycling and home wish-lists, to room tours and renovations.

My favourite post of the week came from Three Sons Later.

Fionnuala had found a cradle that had been put out for the binmen and set to work making it look beautiful. It was such a lovely example of what you can do with an unwanted item.


One man’s trash is another’s treasure as they say!

Jess’ favourite post was from Marmalade Pie.

Lizzie generously invited us into her home and her post was all about her beautiful sitting room. It’s absolutely gorgeous, pop along and have a look but be warned. You may come way with a serious dose of house envy! ;)


So looking forward to having you all join us this week, I can’t wait to read all your posts.

All we ask is that you follow these 3 little 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’ 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.

Be sure to tweet —@twinklediaries or @soot1978 — with the url to your post, using the hashtag #HomeEtc and Jess or I will always retweet (sometimes both of us if you’re lucky)! ;)

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!




As well as HomeSense the voucher can also be spent in TK Maxx!

Thanks so much for all your support last week — it means such a lot and forward to reading your posts. The linky portal is open until 11.58pm on Saturday, so lots of time to link up.

Lots of love,

Caro & Jess x

    Eeek! Happy dance! Thanks Caro. I was scrolling down and thought to myself “Oh there’s the same kitchen as mine” then realised what I was looking at :)
    I’ll be linking up again this week and am looking forward to reading the other posts. I just love home stuff.
