These incredible driftwood sculptures are by the artist Heather Jansch. I was sent a "traveling email" from a dear friend, of a selection of Ms. Hanschs work. Heather lives and creates at her Sedgewood Coach House near Plymouth England. She has a beautiful website that shows the incredible countryside where she works, and her adventures of collecting wood. She has her Book, Heather Jansch's Diary...A Life In The Year Of By Heather Jansch, available at her website. I found a great review by Richard Marcus at his blog Leap In The Dark. It sounds like a great book for the Artist and the non artist alike, delving into the artistic process while living a day to day life. Heather Jansch's sculptures bring together her material of choice wood, and her passion for creatures especially horses and gives them a spirit of their own. Visiting her website is such a treat. Now I'm in the process of finding postcards of her work, to add to my collection.
These Photos are from Line at her blog Funky Farm. Line lives in Norway on a beautiful Farm and has beautiful Photos through out her funky blog. Not only are her animals precious but so are the gorgeous sunsets and Line's funky fashion~
These incredible Photos are from Jeff Fischer at the wildlife blog Ecobirder. This blog is full of gorgeous pictures, insightful stories, and amazing facts about the wildlife that Jeff encounters.
This is just a tiny sample of pages and pages of beautiful animals and natural beauty that is captured by Jeff's incredible photography. His goal for Ecobirder is to for "the photography, facts, and stories, to entertain, educated, and inspire people about the natural world around us." You can also check out Ecobirders Flickr!

This blog is a great find for any animal, and nature lover~
Always looking for the creativity in Life. I live in Plant City, Florida with my two sons(Ari and Andrew), my husband Jon, and Spooky our cat and Max our crazy dog.In my spare time I enjoy blogging and reading a good book , and Look forward to family summer vacations at the cottage in Michigan and some day will get to travel the world.
While I'm on my own creative journey, In my free time, I'm writing about things I love and enjoy, mostly creativity, things that hopefully inspire others and bring hope and joy. As I fight against following the EGO, I'm trying to live authentically and follow where the Muse takes me. I was lucky enough to travel as a child and be surrounded by talented, sweet people and know the struggles and frustrations of following the roads less traveled., so this is just me having fun enjoying the journey :-)
