Home Etc #52

Home Etc the linky is one!

Hello and welcome back to Home Etc!

ONE WHOLE YEAR! It is now week 52 and my co-host Caro — The Twinkle Diaries — and I, have been running it for one year! Yay!

Caro and I started Home Etc as a weekly linky club for bloggers to share any posts that include interiors, garden, DIY, crafting or up-cycling. We have found so many lovely new blogs and have built up such a fantastic community in that time. So thanks for reading and joining in; we just LOVE having you.

You can read the very first Home Etc post here..

Back to last week now, and our **favourite** posts were from:

The Nursery Reveal post from Cheery Little Thing blog – oh, we adored this post so much! The room is super stylish and very sweet. So beautifully accessorised too.

We also loved the post – Growing Our First Vegetable Garden from the blog List of Lovely Things. Getting children involved outdoors and growing plants and vegetables is superb and we loved it. And look at these cute spoons!

 Home Etc - our favourite posts.


All we ask is that you follow these 4 simple rules:

1) Please include our lovely #HomeEtc badge at the bottom of your post.

2) You can link up to 2 posts, new or old.

3) Please be kind enough to comment on some of your HOSTS’ POSTS plus a couple of others.

4) By linking up you give us permission to use images from your blog, if featured. You also allow us to add you to our mailing list, to receive the occasional update or reminder.

Be sure to tweet @twinklediaries or @soot1978 with the url to your post, using the hashtag #HomeEtc and we will always retweet.

Caro and I will continue to pick 2 favourite posts 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 HomeSense (can be used at TK Maxx too).
