By now you’ve heard of the Three Potato Four sale this weekend with all the wonderful food trucks — including Pitruco Pizza – yum!– and we urge you to get into this big time. Three Potato Four has some of the coolest housewares and textiles around. But, what we didn’t know is that they have a web store! So,we decided to pick out a few things online before hitting up the sale, so we can make a beeline to all of our favorite things!

Okay, so maybe your picket fence is actually a row of garbage cans lined along the curb of your sidestreet and your 2.5 kids are your twenty-something dude roommates who don’t need you to transport them to various extracurricular activities, just a ride home from the bar after last call once in a while. That doesn’t mean you can’t revel in a bit of domestic bliss.
You don’t have to sport a Peter Pan collar or a diamond on your ring finger. What the hell, you don’t even need a man at all! It’s 2009 and about time that tradition had a makeover. I give you: the Sassy Domestic. She works. She leaves dishes in the sink. She might call him. She might not. She’s any girl who can enjoy a good recipe when paired with a tall can of beer.
Every domestic needs a good cookbook. Written with the sassy domestic in mind, I Like You is an indispensable guide chock full of recipes, notes on ettiquite, and part ideas all from the whimsical mind of Amy Sedaris. You probably know her best as Jerri Blank from the TV series, Strangers With Candy. If you don’t know her, get to know her and you’ll make a beeline to the bookstore for your new kitchen bible!
While cooking alone or for your roommates, impress others or just feel more legit with an adorable apron from Anthropologie.
Spruce up your space without spending a fortune with Orla Kiely’s home line for Target. What would a girl do but dream without Target’s sweet designer collaborations?
Sprucing up may also involve cleaning out, but don’t toss everything! This D.I.Y. project can make an old record worth your time!
Lastly, nothing makes a home more homey than candles. Make your own teacup candles to give that glow a personal touch!
Last week, I mentioned my boyfriend’s thing for skulls and other anatomical housewares. Turns out, I must dig ‘em too because I am in love with Tony Pregiato’s x-ray night lights. Available at Mew Gallery, they run for $20 and measure 5″(h) x 3 1/2″(w) x 2″(d). While I feel special affinity for the teeth, check out other body parts after the jump.
