About Me

My photo
Antwerp, Belgium
Welcome to the new, and improved version of Heaven in Belgium. I am Jientje. "Jientje", like the boys name Gene, followed by "chu"? "Gene-chu", that's how you pronounce my name. Yes!!!!That's it!! So now you know huh? I am an addicted blogger. I was born and raised and am still living in Belgium. Yeah, the "this-is- Tuesday-so-this-must-be-Brussels" kind of Belgium .. There, you see? Maybe you couldn't find it on the map, but at least I'm trying to change that a little by sharing lots of pictures. I really love to cook and create new things, like this blog for instance. I am a mother, not a grandmother,I don't know if I'll ever be, but I'll let you know in due time! Oh and um ... I am a wife too! They say I'm a traveler, and a photographer. Well that's just what they say, I love to make pictures, but I am far from professional ... If my English is not perfect, that would be because it's my second language. I do hope you'll forgive me any possible misspellings or strange vocabulary ... Now, as a result of all of the above, I get way too little sleep and my days are always much too short!

Fave Five, the French Edition ...


Friday again, and our holiday is coming to an end ...
I love everything about this beautiful region, so sharing five more favourite things is not hard at all!


Favourite shop in Saint Rémy: Entre Sel et Terre.
I love their wide range of salts and spices.

Colourful handbags and shoppingbags.

Pastis. My favourite aperitif. There is nothing like it.

Sunsets

The colour and the scent of a lavender field. I hope they are in bloom this year.
Spring was very cold last year, so we did not get to see any. This picture was taken two years ago somewhere in the area of Sault.

See you all again real soon!!
