Home Etc #66

Morning all! It’s time for this week’s Home Etc!

Home Etc is a weekly linky club for bloggers to share any posts that include interiors, garden, DIY, crafting or up-cycling.

If you have a home related post, and would like to give it an airing, my co-host Jess and I would love you to link up with us!

Home Etc Favourites

Out of last week’s fantastic posts, one that really stood out was from Diaries From Day Dot.

We loved her post based around the trend for hot air balloons in nurseries and children’s playrooms. Gorgeous inspiration to create the look in your own home; my favourite pic was the one below. I absolutely love the fresh white with pops of colour coming from those amazing hot air balloons.

I absolutely love this gorgeous room! Image Source

Also, more fantastic home inspiration came from Emma who writes over at the blog Flying Solo.

She shared her fabulous sitting room reveal.


Pop along and have a look at the before pics — it’s SUCH an amazing transformation!! You’d never believe it was the same room.

Well done to both of you ladies! Your names are now in the hat to win next month’s voucher from our lovely sponsor, HomeSense.

The winner will be announced in 4 week’s time. Thanks so much everyone, for linking in!

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

Jess and I are thrilled that some of you lovely people 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
