Treasury Tuesday

maRRose - CCC --- Treasury Tuesday, Champagne Crochet-04It’s hard to believe Christmas is behind us …… I sure hope yours was wonderful in every way!
To go easy on the let down of Christmas 2015 being history already, it’s a good thing we still have the New Year’s fun to be looking forward too.
In The Netherlands this holiday is referred to as “Oud & Nieuw” (old and new), and there are a few traditions linked to our “Oud & Nieuw”.

Firstly there’s the “oliebollen” – fried dough filled with raisins – and “appelflappen” – puff pastry filled with apples.
Secondly, fireworks ……. Under constant discussion (for obvious reasons), the Dutch are still allowed to set off their own firecrackers, sparklers and small rockets on New Year’s Eve. I’ve noticed this is mainly a male-kind-of-thing ……..

A far less dangerous and fairly new tradition (1999) in a lot of Dutch homes, and most certainly in ours, is listening to the “Top2000” on the radio. This is a crowd sourced list of the 2000 best songs ever and great fun to listen too. There’s even a daily spin-off on television – wonderful to watch as well.

What would you say are special New Year’s Eve traditions in your country, or home?
My guess is 90% of us will raise a glass of prosecco or champagne and drink to good health and prosperity of the people we’re with – I know we will!

Which brings me – finally 😉 – to the newest “Treasury Tuesday” that has “champagne” as its theme!
Favorites this week are the clutch – I love its shape – and the stylish cardigan. The combination of the rather simple knitted body with the pretty crocheted border is an absolute win, I think.
