The Goddess

This was the theme for 'A Fashionable Challenge' a couple of week's back.
I wanted my goddess to look like she was from another time, another place....

The tiny Island of Cyprus where my family originates is known as the Island of love .....
legend has it Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love
rose from the sea foam and its where she spent her days chasing (stalking) her Adonis and seducing him with her love and beauty....

Near the undeveloped rocky west coast of the island there is a natural grotto, 'the baths of Aphrodite'... tourists flock there as its magic waters will give you eternal beauty...

I miss Cyprus, i miss its beauty, its friendly locals, the sunshine, the stunning beaches...most of all I miss my grandparents. My mother is flying over there next month to spend some time with her parents, im really happy she is going, she needs to be with them and they need her right now as well....
