Home Etc #89 — and some news!

This week has felt very springlike indeed. And with spring comes newness and change.

Talking of which, Jess and I have some really exciting news to share this week! Our little Home Etc team is growing!

After almost two years of hosting this little linky each week, by ourselves, we’ve decided that the time has come for us to expand a little.

So we’re delighted to announce that a couple of our fave Home Etc regulars — Lins from Boo and Maddie and Kerry from Noah and the Girls — will be taking turns, with us, to host each week.


Next week Kerry and Lins will be taking over the helm and you’ll find the Home Etc link up over on their blogs. Jess and I will be hosting the following week and we’ll alternate each week thereafter!

We’re hoping it won’t cause too much confusion and will just mean that we’ll have a broader reach and will grow our lovely community even further!

But back to this week.

Home Etc Favourites

Faves from last week came from Nancy — who writes over at ‘Hello Nancy’ — with the most gorgeous peek into her trip away to south Wales.

And Karen who writes over at the blog ‘Well I Guess This Is Growing Up‘ showed off her daughter’s amazing bedroom.

And great news! If you really, really love it, I’m happy to tell you that Karen’s house is on the market; so if you fancy buying a house — that comes complete with the coolest kid’s room ever — it could be yours ;)

Congratulations to both of you — you’re both now in the running to win this month’s voucher from our fabulous sponsor, Laura Ashley.

Home Etc on Instagram

Our little online community has been busy as ever.

It always amazes me how in-sync everyone is. There always seems to be one particular colour — or theme — running through everyone’s photos. So nice to see.

This little collection of photos is very springlike.

Use the hashtag #HomeEtc to join in with our online community! We love seeing what everyone’s been up to on Instagram.

But with regards to the blog link-up, from next week there will be a couple of changes in the Home Etc house!


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.

SO next week, please be sure to tweet —@booandmaddie  or @NoahandGirls — with the url to your post, using the hashtag #HomeEtc and Kerry or Lins will always retweet (sometimes both of them if you’re lucky)! ;)

Depending on who’s hosting, either Lins and Kerry — or Jess and I — will pick a 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!


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

Lots of love,

Caro and the Home Etc Girls x

PS — see you in a couple of week’s time. And don’t forget to head over to Lins or Kerry’s blogs next week to link up!
