Home Etc #71

Morning folks and welcome to Home Etc!

Last week my lovely co-host Jess (from the blog Mummy Of Boy & Girl Twins) and I shared the news that our little linky is now being supported by Laura Ashley!

We’ve been SO excited about it and the response from the Home etc community was really overwhelming!

Needless to say, we had one of our busiest weeks ever, with a great number of bloggers linking in and sharing their posts.

Home Etc Favourites

A favourite posts from last week came from Becky, who writes the blog Spirited Puddle Jumper, who showed off her amazing up-cycled drinks trolley!!

I’m SUCH a fan of a drinks trolley — I showed off my home gin bar earlier this year — and it’s lovely to see Becky’s fab retro version with the high-ball glasses and original Slim-Jims!!

Another favourite came from Carly at A Cup Full Of Glitter.

Carly is one of my favourites on Instagram as her lovely feed is always full of flowers found objects and is such a welcome sight each day.

I love the post she linked up last week; not only did it have some very pretty seasonal imagery but it also had a recipe for carrot cupcakes!! YUM!

Well done to both of you girls.

Your names are now in the mix, to win this month’s voucher from our brand new sponsor — Laura Ashley — which will be announced in 4 week’s time.

Thanks so much everyone, for linking in. We 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 brand new sponsor!


Very weird to be typing that but SO exciting!!

Thanks so much for linking up all your fabulous posts. Jess and I look forward to reading more of the same this week!

The linky portal is open until midday on Friday.

#HomeEtc the hashtag

Jess and I are delighted 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,
