#HomeEtc 20 — Home and Garden Inspired Blog Hop

I’ve linked up someone else’s home and garden to this week’s #HomeEtc.

And when I grow up (ahem) I would like a garden just like the one at Coton Manor! Such a beautiful place — it made me feel like a child again — the gardens were SO huge.

This week my lovely co-host Jess — mummy of boy girl twins — and I get to announce our deserving winner for this month’s prize!

We’re delighted to say that our vote goes to Lins from Boo and Maddie who’s lovely home and garden posts we’ve both really enjoyed over the last few weeks.

Congratulations Lins!

My favourite post  from last week came from Lizzie at Marmalade Pie. She’d made the most beautiful autumn wreath.

Lizzie’s gorgeous handmade wreath — Marmalade Pie 

Such a lovely use of everything that’s available in our gardens and hedgerow at this time of year. And whilst autumn is not my favourite month, this kind of lovely project makes me like it just that little bit more :)

Jess’ favourite post came from Jo, who writes over at the blog Not A Frumpy Mum.

We both agreed that this post — the content and the beautiful photography — was well worthy of being mentioned this week.

Well done both! You’re now in the running to win a voucher from HomeSense, our generous sponsor. The winner of the next prize will be announced in 5 weeks time,

Thanks so much for linking up with Jess and me — we love reading your posts and are so happy to be hosting this home and garden inspired blog hop.

All we ask is that you follow these 3 little 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 or @soot1978 — 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!


Psst… as well as HomeSense the voucher can also be spent in TK Maxx!

Thanks so much for linking up all your lovely home and garden inspired posts. We look forward to reading more of the same this week! The linky portal is open until 11.58pm on Saturday, so lots of time to join in.

Lots of love,

Caro & Jess x
