Home Etc #107

Home Etc weekly favourites

Hello and a very warm welcome back to our lovely home & interiors linky, Home Etc! A link-up I have been running with my really good friend Caro from The Twinkle Diaries now for well over 100+ weeks and something we started up because we wanted to create a community of bloggers to share advice, tips and inspiration for everything interiors and gardens.

I have some *BIG news* this week that I wanted to share with you all. At the end of July (this month) I will be stepping away from #HomeEtc as a host. It isn’t a decision that I have taken lightly and I will miss hosting and reading all the link ups. However, in the last 2 years my blog has changed considerably and moved into lifestyle and is far less interiors focused. I therefore feel as though it’s time for me to focus on some other projects and leave the Home Etc team.

I will still absolutely be linking up myself each week from July onwards, as well as sharing my Instagram photos using the #HomeEtc hashtag!

For now onto our **favourites posts** from last week and these were from:

Morgana from Coffee, Work, Sleep, Repeat blog and her new Master Bedroom post – we love her new home!

Home Etc weekly favourites

Fionnuala from Three Sons Later blog and her Guest Bedroom Makeover post, which is simply gorgeous!

Now, back to this week!

All we ask is that you follow these 3 little rules:
1) Please include our lovely #HomeEtc badge at the bottom of your post.
2) You may link up to two posts — new or old — 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 us @JessSoothill or @booandmaddie (Lins) with the url to your post, using the hashtag #HomeEtc and we will always retweet. We pick our 2 favourite posts each week then at the end of the month we choose an overall winner. This lucky blogger will receive a £20 voucher from our fabulous sponsor Laura Ashley.

Don’t forget to keep using the #HomeEtc hashtag on Instagram too! We just love to see your Instagram photographs.

The linky portal is open until 11.58pm on Saturday, so lots of time to link up!


Love, Jess & Lins x

    Aw I am so sad to hear you wont be hosting anymore Jess but you have done so well with Caro and glad you will still be linking up. And I am sad to have missed the linky this week.
