I love Joan Miller Porcelain and have a particular affinity for her fruit and vegetable beads.  Well, I guess perhaps I have an affinity for fruit and vegetable beads in general because when I saw Joan Miller’s banana charms listed on the Ceramic Art Bead Market page I knew immediately that I wanted to put them with a banana bead I had (from a whole group of fruit beads!) from Artybecca. I also knew this gave me an excuse to buy some Zola Elements chain I’d been wanting from Lima Beads in order to round out my design.

Once I saw the Joan Miller banana charms, I couldn’t get the Banana Boat Song (Day O) by Harry Belafonte out of my head.  His greatest hits played on 8-track (ha!) in my house often growing up, so I’ll probably be on iTunes later downloading some songs. I was talking to my sisters, and we all still enjoy some of the music our parents listened to growing up – and remember all the lyrics.
