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!

Macro Monday, A Touch of Spring

 IMG_8672

I used these little stone birds to decorate the dinner table when I had guests last weekend. They added just that little touch of Spring we’re all looking out for right now.

These look almost lifelike. We sure could use some spring right now. We're having a snowstorm right now. School is closed, so I don't have to work since I work in the cafeteria. I'll be relaxing inside today. (((HUGS)))

They are so very pretty. Have a nice Monday. Spring is trying to come out here in Georgia USA.

Wanda said...

I love your stone birds, Jientje. They look like my favorite Carolina Wrens, with their little round bodies and jaunty tails.

LceeL said...

So - these little stone birds ... do they poop pebbles?

But the pictures are lovely.

Mar said...

Yes, yes...spring! We have had some lovely days here. I have to tell you everytime I visit your blog, the picture on the title takes my breath away! It's just beautiful. Have a wonderful week, Jienjte.

I adore that first shot! The texture of the bird and berry is great. But what makes this photo so good is the way the birds in the background are looking in on the scene.

Lovin' Macro Monday,

Those are lovely!
Birdies over here are already busy with Spring and some already have Babes.
(Had to switch to Internet Explorer, since Blogger ist acting up on a few blogs again and swallows my comment entries :( )

Cute birdies. It is a good idea to have them about the table (picking up crumbs) rather than on a shelf somewhere.

Loree said...

I really like the way the colour turned out, with that kind of golden glow.

Rosidah Abidin said...

Beautiful touch! They almost seem like real. Have a wonderful week, Jientje :)
