Home Etc #145 – Home & Interiors Bloghop

The Nunhead Gardener

Hello and welcome back to #HomeEtc. I don’t know about you but it definitely feels like it’s the season where home updates start happening after we emerge from our winter fog. Pete and I spent the weekend in the garden and on Sunday went to the garden centre where it was busier than we’ve ever seen it. It’s so fun to finally get underway with our plans.

I’m also delighted to announce the latest winner of our Laura Ashley voucher! A relative newcomer to our wonderful little community, it’s Amelia from Oh Little One Sweet. Her hallway makeover was absolutely stunning and really took our breath away. Congratulations Amelia, we’ll be in touch to arrange your Laura Ashley voucher!

Now, for last week’s link up faves.


The favourite post from last week was our all-round fave DIY queen! If you haven’t come across Medina from Grillo Designs before then you’re in for a treat because she does the most amazing transformations in her rental property! The latest, her Entrance and Stairs Makeover is epic, I’m sure you’ll agree. It just goes to show what can be achieved with some imagination and a small budget.

Congratulations Medina, you’re entered into our monthly Laura Ashley voucher prize!

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.

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 and remember next week your host is Caro!
