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!

Art in Joucas

 

This medieval French village hid yet another treasure. The atelier of Ulysse Plaud and Mieke Heybroeck is situated in one of the old houses of Joucas, and the old stone walls make the perfect setting to exhibit these life sized sculptures made out of marble and wood.

Great shots of a beautiful place. They are very artfully done and seem to tell a story.

Interesting sculptures but the village itself is much prettier.

Not my kind of art at all, but I can see how, if that's the sort of thing you appreciate, it would be quite magical to see it in this setting. I do kind of like art worked into its surroundings.
