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!

The shot of the sparrows at the feeder with all the snow is wonderful! I love it!

All your Christmas decorations are wonderful too, so festive.

I absolutely love that second picture with the birds! And, your little orange zester/grater thingy lady is so cute. I have never seen one like that. Mine is so utilitarian compared to that sweet lady.

I knew exactly where I was with the first photo, your snow covered garden, I woke to more snow yesterday too. I love the mix of shimmer and sparkle with froliking angels and
little bears. Nice to see "your" reflection Jientje, in the shining gold ornaments of the "more glitter" photo. Have a joyful Christmas!

WackyMummy said...

Love love love your kitchen shots! So homey and yes, can definitely smell the holiday baking!

Avril said...

Love your angels!! I thought I was the last one to decorate the house - our tree is up but haven't had the energy to do the rest - only baking my Xmas cake now too! smells good so should be ready to take out of oven.
Just look at that snow ! ... it's swelteringly hot here!

Betty said...

Lovely decorations. I really love the little angels tumbling on your table. I am an angel collector so that made me smile!
Have a wonderfully blessed Christmas!

The sparrows would make a beautiful Christmas card. The Boyd Bears Nativity is just darling. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year 2010!
