Home Etc #80


Hello, and a very ‘festive’ 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. We love our own homes and gardens so much and we also thoroughly enjoy reading all the superb posts that link up each week! You give us such inspiration.

We have decided to use this week (week #80) as our last week of Home Etc for 2016! Can you believe that Christmas is nearly here? Where has this year gone? This is because we know that lots of bloggers like to ‘wind down’ for the festive period – including Caro & I – and so we are going to start back up with Home Etc again in the New Year. We will be back on January 11th 2017, when we will have some VERY exciting news about 2 new co-hosts who will be joining us! Please do come back and watch this space!

Back to last week, and here are our two **favourite Posts** below, from the blogs that linked up to Home Etc:

Caroline’s post about Painting the Kitchen Cupboards – from her blog, Diary of a Mum of 3. What a superb way to spruce up a kitchen and make it a far more stylish space! We loved it.

We also loved the post by Steph (from Blog Bay Bee) and her Silver & White Festive Table which looks stunning. Do pop over and look as it’s so inspiring.

We are also delighted to announce that this month’s winner, of the £20 Laura Ashley voucher goes to the lovely Caroline at the blog Diary of a Mum of 3 – a family lifestyle blog. She has been regularly linking and supporting Home Etc all year and we just love her blog and posts so much! Congratulations to you! Enjoy lovely lady x


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 @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 NEW 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!

So…until next year, Happy Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

Love Jess & Caro x
