Home Etc #48

Welcome back to Home Etc!

My co-host Jess — mummy of boy girl twins — and I are absolutely delighted to host Home Etc, a weekly linky club for bloggers to share any posts that include interiors, garden, DIY, crafting or up-cycling.

Basically if it’s at all home related, we welcome you to join in!

Our **favourite** posts last week were from:

Dave who blogs at The Dadventurer shared the final instalment of his mammoth garden makeover. Jess and I were both in absolute agreement and this post was a unanimous favourite from last week.


I’ve so enjoyed the weekly updates and the final garden looks AMAZING doesn’t it? So impressed!

Do go and check it out if you haven’t already!!

Our second favourite comes from Fionnuala who blogs at Three Sons Later.

She also shared her garden, which is a little more established than Dave’s.


Such beautiful pictures of the blossom that’s in bloom at the moment.

It seems that spring has definitely sprung in Germany — I wish that someone would drop it the memo to make an appearance in the UK. It actually snowed here yesterday.

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

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

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, 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,
