Treasury Tuesday

maRRose - CCC --- Treasury Tuesday, Crochet Christmas-02Sinterklaas and his Piet-helpers arrived safely in The Netherlands this past Saturday.
A reason for lots and lots of Dutch kids to be very happy (and a fair amount of adults too, I’m sure)!
You know, Sinterklaas is Santa Clause’s big brother, and he celebrates his birthday by giving presents to others on December 5th. Now …. how’s that for a true x-massy gift-giving spirit?

With all celebrations regarding Sinterklaas’ birthday going on at the end of November/beginning of December, it usually takes Dutch people a little longer to get into the fun stuff related to X-mas, but as soon as Sint and his Pieten leave the country and return to their sunny home in Madrid, we go all out on X-mas as well…. just like the rest of the world ;).
maRRose - CCC --- Treasury Tuesday, Sinterklaas-02My love for Sinterklaas ánd X-mas made me create two treasuries on this “Treasury Tuesday”…..
One is Sinterklaas-themed and the second treasury is loaded with inspiring Christmas-crochet!

This is my favorite Sinterklaas-project:
