Make This: Crocheted Gender-Neutral Baby Blanket

This project is brought to you by the following joyous news: I'm going to be an aunt! I'm over-the-moon excited, and can't wait to meet my first little niece or nephew. That's right, I said niece OR nephew, and that's because the gender isn't known yet! I'm too excited to wait around to find out whether it's going to be a boy or a girl, and I wanted to get started crocheting a blanket ASAP. I made this gender-neutral baby blanket from a sweet sunflower yellow and cute mint green with alternating white.

Pallet Craft: Rustic Baby Nursery

Instead of the run-of-the-mill baby nurseries that are in every catalog out there, this mom-to-be wanted her little guy's nursery to have something extra that would stand out and grow up with the baby.  That called for something a little more masculine than Winnie the Pooh.   

Using untreated pallet lumber and a good deal of problem solving, this nursery on the Bower Power Blog has a rustic and awesome accent wall.  Because the wood was...

Modern Doll Houses

Recently, I stumbled upon these amazing doll houses (read: works of art) by Brinca Dada. Not only would I love to have one of them for our daughter Ayla, but I'd love to live inside one of them. They are simple and stunning. 

The company's philosophy is that "toys should be beautiful and fun." They believe they should be athestically pleasing to parents and inviting to children. They pride themselves on skipping the flash and noise, in favor...

The Most Adorable Baby Hat Ever!

by Chris Gardner

I don't imagine a cuter hat could exist. The Coverall Hat by Oeuf is designed to solve the eternal problem of keeping the hat on the youngster's noggin, where it belongs. The effect, however, is ultimate adorableness.

DIYable? For sure. Can the design translate into an adult model? Absolutely, but we should probably keep our shirts on.

Made from 100% baby alpaca wool, which is non-allergenic.

But what tasks or repairs do you think absolutely must go to a professional? Intense electrical or gas work? Masonry? House cleaning?

It fits tikes 6 months to 6 years old, and once the offspring doesn’t need the altitude to reach the dining table, the Nest converts to a Nester chair.
