Home Etc #56

Morning and welcome to another edition of Home Etc!

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


If you’re a fan of all things ‘home’ and have a post that you’d like to dust down and show off, my co-host Jess and I would love you to come and link up with us!

Home Etc Favourites

One of last week’s favourite posts came from Philippa at The Maker Place who shared her experiences at the Clerkenwell Design Festival.

I love this gorgeous chair! For more of the same, pop and have a read of Philippa’s post :)

Such a fab post — I really wanted to go but wasn’t able to get down to London and Philippa’s write up gave a great sense of feeling for the event.

Another favourite was written by Organised Jo.

As her blog name would suggest, a lot of her posts are geared around organisation in the home and Jess and I both loved her post on her new storage bench.

Such a great way of organising the home in a stylish way. Pop and have a look, if you missed Jo’s post last week!

Well done ladies — you’re now in the running to win this month’s voucher from our generous sponsor.

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 peeps are using the #HomeEtc hashtag on Instagram! Please do join in – we love seeing your pictures.

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
