Saw this gorgeous little nest on my walk today... How intricate and amazing is it?!


Trying to make a difference to our world, environment & ecosystems one creation at a time...

OakAppleDesigns was originally started in Brighton {2010}, alongside my floristry work. I love the vibrancy and friendly cosmopolitain feel of Brighton. It's my favourite city.

Living in a city, yearning to bring nature into my life more, I decided to make a move to the countryside {Buckinghamshire} to live on a Narrowboat {2013}. As you do! Immediately I knew Etsy would become a major part of my life. I had to change my techniques and downsize a little, but amazingly it works :)

I have diversified from iPad and iPhone covers and bits and bobs to also making the rope side-fenders which you hang on the side of your boat. These make sure that your Narrowboat doesn't get scratched by the towpath and other boats, keeping your protective paint on. I make my fenders using a technique based on traditional fender making... New skills for a new life!

I work in a garden centre looking after and merchandising house plants and in the florists there.

I live on my narrowboat with my beautiful fiancée, our dog and two cats, surrounded by ducks, swans, the odd kingfisher and Mother Nature.

Thanks so much for looking :)

    Hello :) I live on a Narrowboat on the Grand Union Canal, England with my partner, our dog and two cats. It is here that I make all of the things you see in my etsy shop... I believe in minimising our impact on the planet. Thanks for stopping by!

Returns and exchanges
I'd like you to be happy with whatever you buy, and that's why I give detailed item descriptions. However, if there's been a mistake of course I'll sort you out with a refund or exchange. The item should be returned in the same condition it was sent. Shipping costs are non refundable, and I keep proof of postage.

If you aren't happy, for whatever reason, please convo me and I'll do everything I can to make it right. Your feedback is very important to me, and you only get good feedback from happy people :)
I accept payment through paypal as it's quick and easy, and I'm assured you can pay by credit card via paypal even if you don't have an account. If you need to do something different we'll try and sort something out.
As most of my items are OOAK, what you see is what's coming to you and there's only one of them, so I will ship these within 3 working days.

If it's a custom order, or I've stated that they're made to order, then please allow a window of 1-2 weeks before shipping. If you need something more quickly, convo me and I'll work something out for you. I'll always be in touch and am quick to answer queries.

I'll use Royal Mail first class for orders within the UK, and for abroad I'll use a combination of the most reasonable and speedy method... My friendly post office lady always helps me out ;)

Most of my customers are from across the pond, but please bear in mind that if you're from overseas it takes a little longer to receive your items.

Standard shipping DOES NOT include tracking. If you'd like to track your order please let me know and I'll get a quote depending on the size and weight of your items. This costs more and is your call.

If you're buying an item for a gift and want it wrapped accordingly, let me know (I can wrap goooood!)
