Home Etc #54

Morning all! Wednesday again which means it’s time for Home Etc.

This week I’m flying solo as my lovely friend and co-host Jess — Mummy Of Boy and Girl Twins — is off on her holidays with Mark Warner! SO exciting.

We were both lucky enough to have won a competition, earlier in the year to be Mark Warner Mums. Pop and have a look at my entry if you have a spare couple of minutes! :)

Anyway, back to this week and Home Etc!

Home Etc is a weekly link up for bloggers who have written a post that includes interiors (wish lists, room tours or DIY). Garden or allotment ideas plus crafting or up-cycling.


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!

Home Etc Favourites

One of last week’s favourite posts came from Katy who blogs at Hot Pink Wellingtons.  I LOVED her bedroom makeover so much!!!

The wallpaper, particularly, is absolutely gorgeous.

Katy’s beautiful new-look bedroom!

Another favourite came from Gaby over at Life in Eight, who linked up a post featuring a fabulous new look for her spare room/office space.

I loved the combination of white and wood with splashes of bold colour. How could you fail to be productive in such an inspiring, gorgeous room?

Home Etc

Gaby’s amazing new workspace — look at that gorgeous desk!!!

Well done to both of you! Your names are now in the hat to win this month’s voucher from our lovely 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, Jess and I are thrilled that some of you lovely folk are using 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,

    Well chosen Caro. Katy’s wallpaper is stunning. I loved that post last week.

      It’s absolutely gorgeous isn’t it? Totally fab — I’d love it in our house :)

    That desk really IS gorgeous. And the aqua isn’t something that I’d normally be drawn to, but it just works here doesn’t it? Great pick. Off for a read of everyone else’s posts now :)

      It really, really IS, isn’t it? I love it. And I agree — turquoise isn’t a colour I’d usually be drawn to either but I absolutely love it behind that desk! :)

    That wallpaper! That desk! I’ve been missing in action for a while, but happy to be back this week linking up and looking forward to reading all the fab linked posts. xx #HomeEtc
