FRUITful Designs (3): Goin’ Bananas
The healthiest part of my day is my breakfast. My husband and I make sure we share a plate of assorted cut fruit to have a healthy start to our day. So, I thought why not make a whole week’s post on fruit. I figured there must be lots of fruit-inspired creations out there. This week I share with you my discoveries in a special feature called “FRUITful Designs”.
Today I bring you GOIN’ BANANAS..we look into some never-been- seen-before banana fashions.
