Another Beautiful Day At The Farmer's Market

Three Oaks Farm

Three Oaks Farm grows their beautiful plants and flowers in their greenhouses south of town.  They have a NEW garden center located in town at 1213 Mockingbird (across from Juan Pablos restaurant).

*They have some really cute water fountains too!

Owner, Linda Chester told me that Friday, April 22, was one of their best days ever!

Way to go Linda - hope it just keeps getting better!

All of their plants are simply beautiful!


These candles are soy based, burn stronger, and longer than paraffin wax candles.

They donate 10% of the proceeds from the sell of their Wild Cat candles to the SSISD athletic department!

Some of their top selling candles are Egyptian Sheets, Creme Brulee, Endless, Love Spell, Coconut Lime, and Hazelnut Coffee.

These are some of the BEST SMELLING candles!  Follow them on Facebook

Need a quick bite while walking around the Farmer's Market?  Stop in front of Muddy Jake's for a $1.50 hot dog.

My husband and I have (way too many times).  They are that good!

Or if you need to sit down and enjoy some wonderful food, head into

Some of their best dishes, in my opinion, are the:

Blackened Tilapia served over dirty rice or pasta with a creamy rotel sauce.  You can add shrimp to this dish if you like.

Sweet Chili Glazed Salmon which is a seasoned and pan seared fillet topped with sweet chili sauce served with garlic mashed potatoes and vegetables.

Their NY Strip is hand cut Angus beef.  Lightly seasoned and flame grilled to perfection!  Choose an 8 or 12 oz cut.  Served with garlic mashed potatoes and vegetables.  You can add shrimp, as shown here.  Yumm!  (served after 5:00pm)

Of course you have to top off one of these delectable entrées with a decadent dessert of Raspberry Cheesecake, Chocolate Mousse Cake, Bread Pudding, or Key Lime Pie!

We just shipped some of our fabric to New Zealand! Here's a little tid bit about the Auckland region.

Here's a little something about the Auckland, New Zealand region you may not know about.

Introducing Auckland Region

Paris may be the city of love, but Auckland is the city of many lovers, according to its Maori name, Tamaki Makaurau. In fact, her lovers so desired this beautiful place that they fought over her for centuries.
It’s hard to imagine a more geographically blessed city. Its two magnificent harbours frame a narrow isthmus punctuated by volcanic cones and surrounded by fertile farmland. From any of its numerous vantage points you’ll be astounded at how close the Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean come to kissing and forming a new island.
As a result, water’s never far away – whether it’s the ruggedly beautiful west-coast surf beaches or the glistening Hauraki Gulf with its myriad islands. The 135, 000 pleasure crafts fillingAuckland’s marinas have lent the city its most durable nickname: the ‘City of Sails’.
Within an hour’s drive from the high-rise heart of the city are dense tracts of rainforest, thermal springs, deserted beaches, wineries and wildlife reserves. Yet big-city comforts have spread to all corners of the Auckland Region: a decent coffee or chardonnay is usually close at hand.
Yet the rest of the country loves to hate it, tut-tutting about its traffic snarls and the supposed self-obsession of the quarter of the country’s population that call it home. With its many riches, Auckland can justifiably respond to its detractors, ‘Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful’.
