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!

Beautiful photos of the past, Jientje. I remember the sticky 'fly catching tape' hanging from the ceiling...yuk! I have a set of small bowls like the one with the spoon!

I love such photos.
Have you ever seen on TV, the fellow who went into the Alaska woods and built a cabin by hand with just a few tools and lived there till he almost died beside a lake?
There was a plane that brought him supplies he could not otherwise get, like socks.
He loved the solitary life, hunted, had a garden,and chopped wood for winter.
He even used an axe to chop the wood for his cabin.He carved his own spoons and hammer handles and used wooden nails.He lived a dream.
