Home Etc #111

Home Etc 111

After a couple of weeks of feeling all out of sorts and having no AMOUNT of problems with the back end of my blog it feels so good to be back on track and enthused all over again about cracking on with some new home projects.

Our bathroom makeover is all but done so next up is a little refresh of our home office and I can’t wait.

We’ve also adjusted to our new HomeEtc hosting schedule so from now I’ll be alternating weeks with the lovely Caro from The Twinkle Diaries but as always, we’ll both be commenting on and sharing your posts so don’t forget to always tag us when you join the linky.


It’s lovely to see new faces as well as wonderful regulars. This week, we loved Lilypad and Bow’s wonderful living room before and after. It can be really hard to make a rental your own but Abbie shows how to do it in utmost style.

Congratulations Abbie  — you’re now in the running to win this month’s voucher from our fabulous sponsor, Laura Ashley.

Now it’s your turn, please do join in with any home/upcycling/DIY/craft/interiors-related posts.


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 @booandmaddie or @twinklediaries with the url to your post, using the hashtag #HomeEtc and we will always retweet. We will pick 1 favourite post each week then at the end of the month we’ll choose an overall winner.

    Sorry to hear about your tech problems, Lins, they’re the worst! Glad everything is back up and running for you now. Abbie is a very deserving winner, I loved her living room revamp! xx

      Thankfully it coincided with a very loss of mojo week, had it been any other time I’d have been even more annoyed! Pleasure to co-host as always Xx
