Home Etc #7 — Home and Garden Inspired Blog Hop

Wednesday already?! How can that be?

The last week has passed by in a bit of a blur to be honest. I spent from last Wednesday to Monday of this week, hanging out on a farm in the village of Pilton, for the largest garden party in the world.

Glastonbury Festival.

Needless to say, I’m very slightly behind on my blogging and things have taken a backseat!!

In my absence, Home Etc saw some beautiful and inspirational blogs last week! From unusual containers for planting, to kitchen renovations, we had some fabulous bloggers linking up some great posts.

Sadly, my lovely co-host Jess — from mummy of boy girl twins — and I can only choose one favourite each.

My favourite came from the blog A Sunny Island — Poppy shared such a gorgeous vintage find. A beautiful table with an incredible back-story.

Such a beautiful piece only made better by the amazing tale that came with it.

Jess’ favourite was by Jenny who writes over at  Monkey and Mouse.

She’s made some amazing cloud shelves for her eldest son’s bedroom. Funnily enough I featured some cloud accessories in a recent post for a friend, who had asked me for some inspiration for her daughter’s nursery.

It’s lovely to see Jenny’s creative take on a similar theme.

Well done both :) You’re now in the running for winning this month’s voucher from our fabulous sponsor, HomeSense.

Thankyou so much everyone for linking up with Jess and me. We’re both delighted to see your fantastic posts each week and hope that you’ll continue to join us.

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 gorgeous home and garden inspired 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.

Lots of love,

Caro & Jess x
