Home Etc #25


Bonfire night this weekend. Our AGA is back on. And the heating comes on in a morning, taking the chill off the rooms before we brave the cold.

The freezing fog over the last couple of days has made me really happy to stay indoors. It won’t be too long before the Christmas decorations are brought down from the attic and the festive season is in full swing, once again.

Nice to take a metaphorical deep breath, before that happens though ;)

Back to this week’s HomeEtc link-up! My co-host Jess — from mummyofboygirltwins — and I are absolutely delighted to host this little blog hop. Home Etc is a weekly linky club for bloggers to share any posts that include interiors, garden or allotment, DIY, crafting and up-cycling. Basically if it’s home related, we welcome you to join in and link up with us!

Each month we pick a winner from our favourite posts that have linked up and Jess and I are delighted to announce that this month’s winner of a £20 gift voucher for HomeSense/TK Maxx has been won by Poppy who blogs over at A Sunny Island.

We absolutely love Poppy’s gorgeous home; she’s a regular contributor to Home Etc and we always love to see her inspiring blog posts. Congratulations Poppy! We’ll be in touch for your address then your voucher will be winging it’s way to you!!

Our favourite posts from last week came from:

Diary of a Mum of 3, who wrote about her amazing bedroom makeover. Caroline used a paper from Graham and Brown and it has totally transformed the look and feel of the room!

Our second favourite came from Wave To Mummy.

I’ve been really enjoying seeing the renovation updates, that Sanna’s been posting about their home. It’s lovely to see it all coming together now. She wrote about her bedroom too, funnily enough, and I totally fell in love with her fantastic light fitting.

Well done both! You’re now in the running to win a voucher from HomeSense, our generous sponsor. The winner of the next prize will be announced in 5 weeks time,

Thanks so much for linking up with Jess and me — we love reading your posts and are so happy to be hosting this home and garden inspired blog hop.

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!


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
