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!

Sunshine and Flip Flops

Cool drinks, flip flops and a swimming pool.
Sunshine and blue skies,
smiling faces
Red poppies and lavender fields
crickets on a hot summer’s evening
French “joie de vivre” …

… that’s what’s on my mind right now.

The French Provence is waiting for me.

Hi!!! I'm Marina from Greece. I randomly fell over your blog and as I was reading your profile I saw that you also like to make things with your own hands. I stuck at the "bobbin lace" you're writing cause we have the same technique in Greece, with a different name. I wish I knew it... I hope you're having a good time and I'll follow your blog from somewhere near you since we're moving to Brussels at the end of July!
