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!

These were taken early December when we had our first snow. There is nothing prettier than that first dusting of snow …
It’s raining again now. Good old rainy Belgium. DUH!

It looks so pretty on the candles. We have more than a dusting of the stuff here.

It is raining here too! For the past 3 days we have had rain and more to come, although the temp is above 50 degrees! The mountain tops are capped with snow which makes a wonderful contrast to the desert floor. Hugs and smiles across the miles! beautiful pics my friend!

That first shot is lovely Jientje!
Lovely container for the candles. :)
I have rain too; but would much rather have snow!

Love the first shot Jientje and the boot. Snow does have a magic. It is raining here so in a few days I am off to London (where it is probably raining there too). We spent a wonderful week in Belgium, Brugges and Amsterdam a few years ago and yes it also rained there, you get used to it :-). hugs, Kathy.

I love these scenes. You're right. Dustings are the best. Not too messy, but just enough to throw a light blanket of white on everything :)

A short story this time. Excellent photos. Great textures and the sepia toning is masterful.

Loree said...

Your pictures are always so beautiful that they make me sigh and wish i could take photos which are just as gorgeous.
