Dress #345 Golden Wheat

In France, wheat symbolizes good fortune and abundance especially at the start of a new year. The florist sell  bunches of wheat right next to the white flowers symbolizing a fresh start for the year. I've seen miles and miles of golden wheat fields in the Western U.S. but today is the first time I've handled wheat. It is beautiful! The grain groups look like little flowers. Dress of wheat, linen, and some gold ribbon that I picked up on the street.


  1. Love, love, love it! So sweet. So pretty. Just love the floral look. It reminds me of the wheat and the corn husk dolls that the girls make in Nebraska. Only this is so much prettier.

  2. So so gorgeous! A piece of art! You rule, Jeannie!:)

    I bought woven wheat in December at the Bethlehem, PA Chriatmas Mart which is hanging in my kitchen.

  5. Thanks, everyone! I wish an abundance of all good things to all of you throughout the new year!

  6. Love love love it better than Eric Kayser's baguette Monge!

    1. Ah, Carol. You aren't a bread person, you've said. I'd gladly give up my sewing machine for Eric Kayser's baguette. Luckily, I don't have to do that. The LinkedIn widget for 'you might also like' seems to be broken. You can see all my dresses on one screen by this link:
