Treasury: Like Peas in a Pod

Treasury: What Holds You in Your Heart??*TOBITEAM*

Featured Etsian: Bill and Charlene Mullis

My favorite Item from CrabApplCreations:   Primitive Snowman nodder make do ornie tea dyed tree topper rusty spring

This primitive snowman is one of my favorite things to make. His head has been handcrafted from warm and natural batting which has been tea dyed. His hat is felt and a homespun tie has been added. The entire hat was then brushed with cinammon to create an older look. He has button eyes, a stitched mouth, and his nose is made from a painted and cinammoned paper plate. He smells good.

He sits on a base of greenery and red pip berries, and an old bed spring. He is 12" tall. A tag adorns the spring which says winter welcome. He can either be displayed as a makedo or can be added to the top of your Christmas tree. He can then be taken down and displayed til spring on a shelf or wherever you might decide to add him.

Homespun ties may vary as well as color of warm and natural as it has been tea dyed. There is a variation between snowmen as they are handmade. That is one of the things of beauty of buying handmade in the USA. Every one is different.

This would be a great addition to anyones snowman collection.

This snowman can be combined with other purchases and out of United States shipments will be quoted upon request.

This item may be shipped with others in order to reduce shipping cost. It will gladly be shipped internationally. Just convo me for exact quote.

Thanks for looking. You can also view the rest of our items at

Enjoy the wonderful holiday season ahead.       



Shabby chic, frames, quality wooden shelves, upgraded vintage, and antique items are just some of the products we offer.

In business since 1993, Crab Apple Creations strives the make a product that you will love, as much as we love making it for you.

I love the treasure hunting that goes into finding these items as well as the fun of seeing the rescued and upcycled items that come from the hunt.

After 25 years as controller at a manufacturing plant, I have returned to doing what is near and dear to my heart, crafting. Together with my husband Bill, who is the manufacturer of all our items, I have tried to create items that will be near and dear to your heart, whether they be vintage, rescued and upcycled vintage, or hand made new. Our customers are our main concern and our target is to make you as happy when you receive your item as we are creating it.

We welcome special orders. I will search all of our treasury of items to come up with just the exact thing you are searching for.

                                                                         The Interview:

I am a happily married mother and grandmother living in God's country here in Southern Indiana. I come from a long line of crafts people. My grandmother and mother both have sewn and made quilts for as long as I can remember. When my girls were little, I made all their clothes. My husband and I have been doing craft shows since 1993. My tastes orgininally ran more toward primitive. He is a retired cabinetmaker so quality is sooo on his mind when building his wood products.

I just recently retired and am having a wonderful time going treasure hunting to find all the beautiful vintage items available in our area. I really enjoy upcycling all the treasures I find into beautiful, bright wall hangings, wedding products and bright colored decor. This etsy adventure is not just to supplement income; it is fun just to see what you can create from a rusty old item or vintage find.
Bill and Charlene Mullis                   

When we are not creating, we love to go camping, boating, fishing and just enjoying all the beautiful sights of nature here in the hills of Southern Indiana. We have a mini farm of 8 acres and enjoy growing fresh garden products as well as strawberries. A night in the summertime here in the country is filled with whipporwills, fireflies, crickets and locusts. During the day, we see an abundance of deer, rabbits, birds and other small forest creatures.

In ten years from now, I hope to be doing just what I am doing now, creating, laughing, holding my grandchildren and just enjoying life in general

Name of Shop:  rootedphoenix

My Favorite item:  Aqua blue bead pendant

Aqua blue 3 glass bead pendant, wire wrapped with gold colored copper wire. It is 2 1/2 inches long.

If you would like a chain or ribbon, convo me. I will set up a reserved listing for you.

If you like this pendant, but would like a similar one made with different beads, stones, or a different wire color, please convo me to discuss such an option.       

click this link to see more about this item: 


I have been working with glass beads for 10 years. I got into wire wrapping just last year, and am loving it. I also make some hemp jewelry.

I make one of a kind pieces of jewelry. There may be similar pieces, but there will never be two that are exactly alike.

I also enjoy wood, paper, and leather crafts, but I'm just admiring everyone else's work in those mediums for now. :)

The Interview:

~ Besides creating, what other hobbies do you have?

I love to take walks and enjoy the area I live in. I've moved around a lot, so it's a great way to get acquainted with everything close by. I am also a photographer, so I love to take pictures of the nature around me. I've discovered that there are many surprising things hidden in Salt Lake City. I write music...and that helps me to unwind.

~ Where does your inspiration come from?

I use my jewelry making as a form of meditation. I also study the techniques of many different artists. I look at different color combinations and try to understand why they work (or don't work).

~ Where would you like to be in 10 years?

I hope I'll have my own home with a jewelry studio. I'd love to be working with more precious stones and metals by then.

About:  Hi!
My name is Heidi and I looove Etsy !!!
I am an artist (and a future art teacher !) residing in Montreal, Quebec.

I create everything you see here at H.Golden Oaks in my small studio. In fact, I enjoy every step of the design process; from choosing the perfect materials, to watching what's in my head materialize.

In the past, I studied arts in college and university and then worked as a mosaïcist.
I have also experimented in acrylic painting, silkscreen painting, snow sculpture, photography, video, resins, wood sculpture, collages, puppet making, etc. I have created jewelry since I was a kid.

I usually work with fabrics, ribbons, beads and recycled objects. I like to create strange and intimate worlds that possess their own ambiance. I usually have several projects going on at once and dozens in my head. Most items in my shop are very limited editions.

Thanks so much for stopping by! 

xo, :) Heidi

                                           The Interview

Tell the readers about yourself.
I'm 19 years old and am currently a sophomore in college. I'm majoring in graphic design but I also love illustration. I have a loving family and boyfriend who are constantly supporting me. I tend to be quite shy at first but once I get talking to someone, I won't stop talking, haha. I knew I always wanted to be an artist but didn't decide to pursue it until high school, where I got a lot of negative feedback and criticism.
Besides creating, what other hobbies do you have?
I love to play the keyboard and I love baking cookies.
Where does your inspiration come from?
My inspiration comes from everything around me. My faith in Christ is where I get most inspiration but I also get inspiration from nature and things people say. I love typography so I'll take things I hear and make it aesthetically pleasing in an art print.
Where would you like to be in 10 years?
I would like to either own my own business or working for Chrysler. I'm a diehard Mopar fan.


Hi, I'm Rebecca. Welcome to my shop!

graphic design student with a passion for typography and all things graphic design as well as an interest in illustration. I have a love for Jesus and enjoy showing this in my work. I also love working with people to make their own ideas come true.

I remember always drawing. In pre-k though, my circles were drawn as lines and my lines were drawn as swirls. It's amazing how much I've changed haha. God has truly given me a talent and I don't want to waste it and not do anything with it.

God Bless!
