Home Etc #70 (plus exciting news!)

Home Etc - our weekly link up with some exciting news!

Hello, and a very warm welcome back to our lovely home & interiors linky, Home Etc, which is hosted by myself and Caro, my very good friend from the The Twinkle Diaries

Week #70 of Home Etc means that we announce our monthly winner — PLUS — we have some super exciting news! Starting from next week, Home Etc has a new sponsor! We’ve been keeping it under wraps for a little while but are delighted to announce that Home Etc will be sponsored by Laura Ashley! Both Caro and I love this timeless and classic brand and adore their home products so much. We are therefore very excited to be collaborating with them.

So…let’s get back to last week and our two **favourite Posts** from the blogs that linked up. These were:

Rachel from the beautiful blog, The Ordinary Lovely who shared her Pegboard Styling for Autumn and it was amazing. We love how Rachel shows off their collections from the outdoors.

Another amazing post to link up to us last week was from the lovely Kerry who blogs at Noah and The Girls and her super post – Toddler Bedroom Inspiration. We absolutely adore Elodie’s room and Caro and I both want that mirror so much!

We are also delighted to announce that this month’s winner, of the £20 HomeSense voucher goes to the lovely Sarah at the blog From Day Dot – a family lifestyle blog. She has been regularly linking and supporting Home Etc and we just love her blog and posts so much! Caro and I have been so impressed and VERY inspired so far. Congratulations to you! Enjoy lovely lady x
