Home Etc #42

Morning all! Wednesday already which means it’s time for another Home Etc!

Home Etc is a weekly link up for bloggers who have written a post that include interiors — wish lists, room tours or DIY — crafting or up-cycling, garden or allotment.


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 for you to come and link up with us!

One of our favourites from last week come from Gaby who writes at Life In Eight who shared her plans for a Scandi dining room.

Such gorgeous photos — of a swoon-worthy house — I LOVED the pops of colour coming from the artwork and the lamp. Such lovely style and made me pine for a dining room that didn’t house a printer and a desk… although it won’t be too long before that dream is a reality!! ;)

Another favourite post came from a Home Etc regular, Stephanie, who blogs at Life at 139a.

Steph shared a cottage tour from her holiday in Dorset.

In total contrast to the pared down look of Gaby’s home — but no less lovely — this cottage oozed warmth and charm.

Well done to both of you ladies. You’re both in the running to win this month’s HomeSense voucher, which will be announced in 3 week’s time.

Thanks so much everyone, for linking in. Jess and I really, really enjoy 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
