We all need wings ! Zoe is beautiful when she shows hers or when she chooses to hide them. So loving the hot colors and floral love in the Bali inspired stuff - spicy and fragrant !

Happy Friday, Alberta !;)

I love the depth and richness in the eyes. They seem to welcome you into her past.

Zoe obviously led a full, happy and talkative life but maybe she could have done with a pair of wings to break free. Fantastic, Alberta.

(I am being lulled to sleep by the dooooooiiiyyyyinnng of the sitar that is playing. At least I think is sitar - and very relaxing too)
