Home Etc #34

Wednesday again, which means it’s time for Home Etc.

Home Etc is a weekly linky for any bloggers who have written posts that include home-makeovers, room-tours, interior wish-lists or DIY — plus garden and allotment, crafting or up-cycling.


If you’re a home-bird and have a post that you’d like to share, my co-host Jess and I would be delighted if you would join in with us!

We had a fantastic number of  people linking in last week and one of our favourite posts came from Becky who writes and The Spirited Puddle Jumper. I’m such a fan of Becky’s gorgeous blog — I especially love her home posts .

Last week’s blog was no exception. Becky shared her newly made-over creative space — clearly this is a subject close to my heart at the moment too as plans are afoot for my own garden office.

I love the bright yellow chair particularly — my old STOKKE kneeling chair isn’t quite  as stylish but is the only thing I can work at my desk on, for such long periods, that doesn’t give me a bad back!

Another particular favourite from last week’s blogs came from Wave To Mummy.

We’ve been following Sanna’s home renovation with interest here on #HomeEtc and I’ve absolutely loved seeing how she and her husband have transformed an outdated house they’d bought into the beautiful family home that it is today.

Last week she shared their lovely sitting room with it’s stylish picture wall.

So gorgeous — and even more so when I think of the pictures Sanna had posted of the house in it’s original state!

Well done to both of you — you’re in the running to win this month’s voucher from our lovely sponsor HomeSense.

Thanks so much everyone for linking up — we really look forward to seeing this week’s posts.

All we ask is that you follow these 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 a couple of your HOSTS’ POSTS which will always be the first 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.

4) By linking up you give us permission to use images from your blog, if featured. You also allow us to add you to our mailing list, to receive the occasional update or reminder.

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 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

  1. I loved Becky’s Home Office too – it’s one of my projects this year to carve out my own office space too, so I am loving all the inspiration on here. Just off to check out Jess’s now :)
