Home Etc #68

Happy Wednesday everyone! Home Etc day!

Home Etc is a weekly linky club for bloggers, hosted by myself and my good friend Jess to share any posts that include interiors, garden, DIY, crafting or up-cycling.

It’s a fabulous showcase for interiors and over the weeks we’ve had some fabulous and inspiring content.

Home Etc Favourites

A particular favourite from last week was from Sarah at Day Dot Diaries.

We’ve been really enjoying her nursery inspiration posts over the last few weeks but last week we were treated to an upcycling project from her unborn baby’s actual nursery!

I love how the arrow hooks echo the print on the fabric — such a clever idea to upcycle the little hooks and turn them into a shelf! Well done Gav ;)

Another Home Etc fave came from lovely Emily who writes the blog My Petit Canard. Like me, Emily is on the Great Little Trading Co testing team and has the good fortune of roadtesting some of their amazing products.

She shared her absolutely gorgeous workspace.

SO clean and pristine isn’t it?  I’m totally in love with it all!

It’s a million miles away from my beaten up old desk — I can imagine Emily feels lovely and calm whenever she sits down to work.

And it just goes to show, once again, that Great Little Trading products are suited to more than just kids bedrooms (similar to the pegboard I styled a few months ago).

Congratulations Emily and Sarah! Both your names are in the hat to win this month’s HomeSense voucher.

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 midday on Friday.

#HomeEtc the hashtag

Finally, Jess and I are over the moon to see so many of you lovelies using the #HomeEtc hashtag on Instagram! 

If you are on Instagram and post anything home, interiors, DIY, craft & garden related please do use the #HomeEtc hashtag. I’ve found some really fab IG feeds to follow over the last few weeks, through folk tagging us in! :)

Lots of love,

Caro & Jess x
