#HomeEtc 23 — Home and Garden Inspired Blog Hop

I can’t believe that in a couple of months time we’ll be gearing up for Christmas!

I’ll bet that the theme of our #HomeEtc posts will definitely start to take on more of a festive flavour over the next few weeks. Love it — or loathe it —it’s just around the corner! ;)

Last week we had some decidedly autumnal posts — a Halloween inspired table from Lisa (Into The Glade) and some gorgeous homegrown from Sammy (Sieze Each Day

But my favourite post came from Hayley who writes at the blog Hayley From Home.

Not autumnal in the slightest but a gorgeous glimpse into her lovely home and family with her picture ledge refresh.

Picture ledges have really taken off and I love seeing how other people style them.

I’m also super chuffed that she’d printed my ‘Home’ print! So lovely to see it there — and it looks lovely sitting next to the other one.

If you’d like your own, you can down load a high-res printable from here.

Jess’ favourite came from Toni (Gym Bunny Mummy). We both agree that the transformation is fabulous!

I’m a huge fan of wallpaper. I wrote about our caravan makeover just yesterday — a little bit of wallpaper has transformed it from eye-sore to eye-candy!

I love what Toni has done with her her stairs and landing. It’s totally lifted the space and made it look so homely.

Well done ladies! 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 a fortnight’s 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  — 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!
