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.

Today I was crafting with a friend who has a fab little bungalow in the Venice Canals part of LA and she also loves her bright white walls... And her place still has lots of personality from the interesting and colorful artwork and accessories throughout.

Bruno & Alicia's Hanukkah Table

by Alicia Lacy

Our Hanukkah table setting.

We're a Christmukkah house (or a Hanumas house, if you prefer). I love the fact that we celebrate both holidays, because it provides us the opportunity spend time with loved ones, share traditions, enjoy amazing eats, and decorate.

Hanukkah begins at sundown this evening, and our table is already set. We assembled a simple table incorporating the colors blue, silver, and white. Using a vase we had on hand, and our everyday dishes, we spruced...

by Alicia Lacy

Halloween is not my favorite holiday, yet every year I'm overcome with the urge to make the house a little Halloweeny. The problem is, I don't love the marriage of orange and black, and blood and guts scare me.

So I went searching for something festive, yet a bit more tame: A White Halloween. Check out some of my new Halloween tabletop favorites.

I have been obsessed with flooring lately.  A former mentor of mine said that all design begins with the foundation or the floor.
