Home Etc #72

Morning folks! Welcome to this week’s Home Etc.

My partner in crime — Jess — is off on another Mark Warner adventure so this week I’m flying solo!

For anyone popping by 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 have a post that you’d like to dust down and show off, Jess and I would love you to come and link up with us!

Home Etc Favourites

First favourite from last week came from Karen who blogs at Fuelled By Latte.

She shared THE most glorious holiday barn. Chock full of fabulous interior style and lovely finishing touches — it’s a wonder she ever wanted to leave!

My fave thing is the little plaque that reads;

‘My moustache brings all the girls to the yard’

So funny — I don’t think Kelis quite had that in mind.

Another favourite from last week comes from Sarah at Extraordinary Chaos.

She was lucky enough to go to the Denby factory for a masterclass on how they take their designs from clay to teacup.




Such a fabulous post — really interesting to see the process behind the products.

For more gorgeous pictures and a guided tour of the Denby workshop, pop along to Sarah’s blog for a read.

Well done to both of you lovely ladies!

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 3 week’s time.

Thanks so much everyone, for linking in. Jess and I love reading all your posts!

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.

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.
