Home Etc #74

Happy Wednesday folks!

Welcome to this week’s Home Etc

For anyone stopping 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 garden’ and have a post that you’d like to share, my good friend Jess and I would love you to come and link up.

Home Etc Favourites

I loved Gemma’s (Hello It’s Gemma) fabulous foraged items.

I’m a huge fan of displaying ‘found’ treasures in bell-jars, so this post was right up my street.

Our home, too, is full of weird bits and pieces that we’ve collected; a deer skull and antlers on the wall, a vase full of feathers in our bathroom. It’s lovely to see someone else doing the same.

Another favourite from last week came from Jane at the blog Maflingo.

She shared her absolutely swoon-worthy new kitchen.



I’ve said a gazillion and one times how much I loathe our inherited and antiquated kitchen so seeing something as lovely as this fills me with both envy and joy in equal measures. I love the zingy pops of colour from the chairs and sofa cushions — just fabulous.

Well done to both of you!

Your names are in the hat to win the very first voucher from our fabulous new sponsor — Laura Ashley — which will be announced next week!

Thanks so much everyone, for linking in. We really, really enjoy reading all your posts!

The Home Etc house 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 new sponsor!


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

#Home Etc the hashtag

Just before I sign off for this week, Jess and I are delighted to see so many of you using the #HomeEtc hashtag on Instagram! I have picked 9 of my favourite photos from the last few weeks.

Amazing how beautifully all the shots sit together — I love our little community and am always blown away by everyone’s creativity and style.

This little grid perfectly captures it — 9 images from 9 different people and just look how well they work with each other!

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,
