Home Etc #57

Wednesday again and it’s my last Home Etc for a couple of weeks!

I’ll be off to sunnier climes, so my lovely friend Jess — mummy of boy girl twins — will be hosting Home Etc singlehandedly.

For anyone dropping in for the first time —

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 garden’ and have a post that you’d like to share, Jess and I would love you to come and link up.

Home Etc Favourites

One of last week’s favourite posts came from Harriet, who blogs over at Life With Mrs Lee.

She shared her lovely guest bedroom makeover.

A vision of pastels — we’re loving Harriet’s new guest room!

I always love seeing a ‘before and after’ and her makeover certainly didn’t disappoint!

Another favourite came from Becky — The Spirited Puddlejumper. She went to Laura Ashley’s AW16 press show a couple of week’s ago and shared her findings.

A jewel in Laura Ashley’s crown

My favourite thing, by far, is this beautiful chair. Such a beautiful colour — plus I’m very partial to a little bit of velvet.

Good job I wasn’t able to get down to London for the show — that chair might have found it’s way under my coat! ;)

Well done girls — your names are now in the hat, 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 — 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
