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!

Thursdays is for Doors …

 

I know I promised photos from inside the castle, but it will have to wait just a little while longer. I visited my family in Bruges yesterday, so I was out all day and I had no  time to edit the photos. Instead I’m sharing this lovely door I discovered on one of my recent photo walks in Antwerp.

Such a BIG door - and such a little doorknob. And then there's that big keyhole. Over that little doorknob. But what a wonderful door.

Europe has the most amazing doors. This is so detailed and very unique. I've never seen a door like it. It looks so large and heavy.

A very intricately designed door!

I'm so very glad you didn't come take a picture of my door! I, too, was struck by how small the knob is.

Rebecca said...

The door is beautiful. What a welcome those little cherubs provide!

Colleen said...

Wow! That is quite a door. I love the details on it.

Now that's what I call a door! Prachtig! I find the star backplate on the door knob quite interesting.

What a door!

Linda Higgins said...

a very beautiful door! I love the door knob! It just makes my imagination go wild...wondering what is behind the doors you photograph. Don't you just want to knock and take a peek!? Have you ever?

You wouldn't want to lose the key to that door, it looks totally intruder safe!

Marcee said...

Such a fantastic door, love all the details!

Joyce said...

Gorgeous door and it looks heavy but it has the tiny door handle on it so I guess it must not be so heavy? I need a new door and non of the ones I have looked at are even close to the beauty of this door. Always such beauty in unexpected items since now almost every thing is mass produced.

I still really really share your love of doors! I think if you made a compliation book of all your door pics it would be an incredible flip book! This one has a great color!
