Home Etc #43

I actually can’t believe that it’s Wednesday already.

Last week I was in London on Tuesday at Jane Packer and Thursday I met my friend — and co-host of Home etc — Jess and we were treated to a lovely afternoon tea with the Mark Warner team.

The knock on effect it’s had on my work has been enormous! I only managed to finish last week’s Home Etc comments last night — slapped wrist — and have been feeling a lot like a hamster on a wheel for the last 7 days.

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 Jess and I would be delighted for you to come and link up with us!

Favourite posts from last week come from Katy at Hot Pink Wellingtons who shared her gorgeous home office.

It’s no secret that I love colour — no, really? — so I was totally captivated by the fabulous wallpaper and bright accessories that she’s chosen to style her lovely work space.

The fabulous wallpaper comes from Sian Elin — her designs have been on my radar for a while now — gorgeous prints and patterns, in mouthwatering shades. What’s not to love?

Another favourite came from lovely Lucy who blog at Mrs Bishop’s Bakes & Banter.

She kindly gave us a guided tour of her bedroom and, again, it was the wallpaper that took centre stage.

Unlike Katy’s kaleidoscopic explosion, Lucy’s gone for a monochrome paper from Little Greene.

Thanks so much everyone, for linking in. We love this little community that Home Etc has brought together.

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.

#HomeEtc the hashtag

Finally, Jess and I would like to start promoting the #HomeEtc hashtag on Instagram! Please do join in – we would love you to use it too! 

Whenever you are on Instagram and posting anything home, interiors, DIY, craft & garden related please do use the #HomeEtc hashtag. We would love to see your Instagram photographs and give them some love! 

Lots of love,

Caro & Jess x
