Home Etc #77

When I was at school, Wednesday was one of my favourite days as we had art lessons in the afternoon! Nowadays Wednesday is my favourite weekday, as I host Home Etc with my friend Jess!

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.

HomeEtc Favourites

Last week’s favourite came from Becky at Pinks Charming and Alex from Bump to Baby.

Becky had been lucky enough to do an online flower arranging course and was showing off her new found skills. It’s such a lovely thing to learn how to do. I was given the opportunity to create a hand tied bouquet at the Jane Packer studio, earlier in the year and it’s something that I’ll never forget!

So beautiful and much cheaper than buying similar arrangements from a florist!

Secondly, Alex showed us her gorgeous home and gave great tips on how to make the most of a small bathroom.

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.
