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!

Ruby Tuesday, Countryside Rubies

 

ruby-slippers-door-stop_copy

Spending some time in my grandmother’s village is always a treat for me. 
My grandmother passed away many years ago, and my family does not live there anymore, but I’m so fond of that pure and unspoiled scenery that I love to go back there and let the memories carry me back to my childhood. 
The weather did not really cooperate, it’s a little gloomy and gray, but still…
I hope you’ll enjoy my rubies …

I'm not sure if I LOVE cows, but I do love that picture of the cows. Your pictures reminded me that I may need to make a trip to the countryside soon, just for the change of scenery.

Thank you for the tour of the countryside. I might just settle down on the hay and stay a while.

I love visiting quaint European villages...it is so peaceful.

I love cows - they're Hamburgers on the hoof.

And your pictures are, as always, perfect.

Jacki said...

You have inspired me to get more creative with my photos, which is why I turned a few sepia. :-)

Avril said...

Peaceful scenes! Love the cows all looking your way!

Caution Flag said...

I used to love cows until I became friends with a dairy farmer who decidedly does not love cows!

cat said...

Beautiful pictures! Cows are so photogenic, as are chickens.

Becky said...

Love this quaint village! I miss the days of long ago when everything was such a simple way of life, laid-back, no hurries. I miss my childhood and all the people that were in it. Thanks for the beautiful photos you always have!

loved your ruby walk--and I love cows too. If you have a picture of cows (with a ruby gate) that you can enlarge let me know.

Loree said...

It looks so beautiful and peaceful - like time has stood still.

lisaschaos said...

I love all the cows peeking at us! Did you call out to them? Very pretty!

Kala said...

That last shot of the cows is great!
