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 candy store at Bokrijk Museum Park. 
It made me feel like a little kid all over again…

I love 'old world' sweet shops like this one. They take you back to another era.

Leora said...

The adult in me gets excited for all the jams. What a fun store.

When I was a little boy, I bought licorice boats at a candy store. Back then they were 2 for a penny. They don't sell licorice boats in the USA anymore, so, I was wondering if they still make them in Europe and sell them there? These licorice boats were very hard and shaped like a little boat. Perhaps licorice is too expensive to make them the way they used to.

Jientje, you are reaching my sweet tooth. Candy shops and ice cream parlors are always just around the corner or down the street.
Happy RT! :) I have a little candy in my red today.

I love the displays and the beautiful jars of all kinds of sweets! What a fun place to go into. I am afraid that if I were to walk in the door I would walk out with bags and bags of goodies!
