Hello! I'm Heather.
Artist. Photographer. Explorer. Nature lover. Anti Coal Activist. Bone collector.

I spend my time exploring and studying the Appalachian Mountains. A vast region, often overlooked, but home to some of the most beautiful and lush forests in the world. I am in love with the wilderness, it is my home, my peace, and what keeps me sane. I make my living as an artist, selling jewelry and other creations. I live a very free lifestyle... outside the lines society has drawn for us. THIS is the society that I love and respect.

Things I've Created
sensitive-fawn sent: i stumbled across your blog because of the bunny photo you posted and i read what you put and i couldn't help but to see who wrote that and then i read your description and your about me.. you have such an amazing way with words and passion for the forest and of love and caring and i really wish i could be as free-spirited as you.. you're beautiful inside and out and i couldn't help but to let you know that.. you're so darling and i wish more people were like you! <3

Oh my goodness! You are so incredibly kind, and I really appreciate your message! it seriously made my day! (: 

I love animals so so so much, it’s insane really. But sometimes when I find a creature who left this world too soon, something sparks in me that I have to do something for that animal. I have to show my respect, and my love. I’ve made many floral arrangements for creatures since then, but it all started with that sweet little bunny. It broke my heart beyond words… it was the most precious little thing I’d ever laid eyes on. But see, after sharing the photo of what I did, that little guy has been loved and appreciated by thousands of people, even after his death. That really warms my heart. (:

Again, you are so kind, and thank you for your sweet message! (: 
Much love to you Darlin’! (:

Anonymous sent: No offense, but if you wanted to go to a secluded beach then why did you pick Florida of all places? Florida has the most crowded beaches on the entire planet... Not to mention that it's the third most populated state, just sayin', I don't really think you thought that one through

Well, actually I didn’t choose where we went. That would be the last place I would pick for vacation to be honest about it. It was my boyfriends sisters trip and she was kind enough to invite us to come along, for free. I had no room to complain about the location. And regardless of how crowded the beach was, we got to go to many state parks that were absolutely amazing. You are kinda rude. -.-

sailorbetelgeuse sent: hello lovely,I'm sure you're aware but I wanted to remind you&maybe some of your followers to try to leave shells in the ocean,especially in tact ones because guys like that gorgeous hermit recycle their homes to new sea babies for newer fatter shells ^^

Hi there! (: You have a great point! I didn’t find any shells, besides teeeny tiny ones, and broken pieces of sand dollars. (;
But hey followers, listen to this chick! (:

Being on the beach on July 4th was an experience I&#8217;ll never forget. I love fireworks anyway, but seeing them over the ocean was absolutely amazing!

This was one cool firework! It branched out like a tree or something&#8230; this photo does it zero justice&#8230;. but still. I won&#8217;t forget it. One of my favorites I&#8217;ve ever seen.
