Home Etc #81

Happy new year to our lovely Home Etc community!

It’s the first one of 2017 and my lovely friend and co-host Jess and I are looking forward to another year of being treated to glimpses of your homes and gardens.

Before Christmas, in my last Home Etc post of 2016, we announced that were going to be changes but — with a little more thought over the festive period — it was decided that things are good the way they are.

Jess and I will carry on hosting Home Etc on a weekly basis and hopefully grow our little community over on Instagram too.

Talking of which! Here are my favourites from the last few weeks.

It’s so nice to see that the hashtag is catching on and being used more often — lovely to welcome new faces along to our Instagram community too.

And that the images that folks are posting are already feeling much fresher and cleaner after the festive period.

Makes me feel happy to know that spring is on the way!

If you’re reading and are keen to get involved — if you write a blog, upload your home and garden related posts to the Home Etc linky window each Wednesday (on The Twinkle Diaries or Mummy Of Boy And Girl Twins blog) or if you have an Instagram account, tag your pictures with the #HomeEtc hashtag, for us to see.

Home Etc House-Rules

1) Please include the #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 sponsor!


I’m really looking forward to seeing what this year will bring — and look forward to seeing your posts and pictures!

The linky portal is open until midday on Friday.

Lots of love,

Caro & Jess x
