Home Etc #38

Good morning lovelies!

It’s Wednesday already which means another edition of Home Etc!

Home Etc is a weekly blog link up for anyone who has written a post that features interiors — wish lists, room tours or DIY — crafting or up-cycling, garden or allotment.


If you’re a home-body and have a post that you’d like to share Jess and I would be delighted for you to come and link up with us!

So many lovely posts to read. I think Jess and I had a record week :)

Our favourites came from Sue at Home Heart Harmony who wrote about her impending kitchen makeover.

Now, anyone who reads my blog regularly will know that I’m DESPERATE to redo our kitchen. Never has a room been more inadequate or so much in need of an overhaul.

But until we can afford to do it properly, I’ll be poring over posts like the one Sue shared with us last week!

Just LOOK at this beauty above.

Heavenly white worktops and pale grey painted units. Yes please. This has literally got ‘my dream kitchen’ scrawled all over it!

Another favourite post came from Kat who blogs at Eat Love Live.

She took us on a tour of her daughter’s beautiful nursery.

All the lovely thoughtful touches

Such a beautiful girl for a little girl to grow up in.

I’m sure that a restful, lovely environment ensure a better night’s sleep! Our boys have always been great sleepers and I’m sure their nursery has a lot to do with it.

Well done Sue and Kat, you two girls are in the running to win this month’s HomeSense voucher, which will be announced in 2 week’s time.

Thanks so much everyone, for linking in. Jess and I really, really enjoyed reading all your posts!

SO looking forward to seeing this week’s blogs.

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 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
