Forestbound is a wonderful brand headed by Boston-based designer Alice Saunders. Alice uses exclusively found and salvaged textiles to create a line of durable, utilitarian tote bags. Each bag is extremely well-crafted and comprised of time worn historic fabrics and hardware that is sourced throughout New England. We are proud to be offering this line at Three Potato Four. The Forestbound line is a beautiful fit for our shop and really reflects much of what we love. A one-of -a-kind well-crafted gift for you or someone special.
Happy birthday, Stu! Love you.
my parents just got back from a month long trip in the philippines and brought us back these delicious candies.
they are wrapped in paper and made from milk and sugar.
so good + the packaging is sweet too.

So. Stu and I have been keeping this little secret on this blog. For the past few months there’s been a little person growing inside me. It was hard not to talk about it on this blog, but we both didn’t want to share it with the internet until he arrived. And yesterday he did! His name is Otis, and he has my nose and Stu’s lips. We haven’t yet decided on his middle name. He is the sweetest and Holly is super excited to be his big sister.
It was a tough pregnancy for me, so much morning sickness (or all day sickness) for the first four months, trying to find the balance with Holly and working with Stu on the shop all the while finding it harder to carry around my ever growing body, and for the last month I was stuck on bed rest in the hospital. A month of bed rest was tough! Luckily, since Stu and I have an online shop, I was able to continue to do shop updates with him via my laptop, keep up with customer emails and post on our blog. As I write this I’m still here in the hospital, but I think Otis and I are going home tomorrow or Thursday. I cannot wait.
Will post pictures soon, but for now this is my belly at 8 month and Holly.
