Lovely vintage postcard and texture work! I loved learning all about Sinterklaas!


oh this is such a wonderful photo and post. My family celebrates here in the States...we call it St. Nickolas day. Even though my children are 27 and 29 they still get a little something in their sock!


That's nice! I love your edit. In central and southern Europe, we call this lovely old guy Saint Nicholas, he visits on the eve of Dec 5th too and leaves gifts for kids in shoes so they can find it in the morning. His naughty "helper" is Krampus. It's one of my favorite holidays.


Beautiful take on the challenge! Thanks for the charming "history lesson," too -- I enjoyed learning about "Sinterklaas" and the Christmas traditions :)

Christmas Blessings to you!

This is so pretty, Cathy! ♥ Great idea!
Hope you had a happy "Festa di San Nicola" (We do celebrate him in some areas of Italy, especially in Trieste and Bari). Thanks so much for the recipe of the Speculoos! One of my friend lives in France, not far from Belgium, and ADORE Speculoos :) I will try your recipe this Christmas.
Happy Holiday Season!
