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!

Weekend Reflections, Light Ornament

This light ornament hangs in the hallway of a butcher store in Antwerp. I was fascinated by the beautiful reflections and I took several pictures with my Big Guy, trying to get the lighting right. When I was done, I stepped back and turned around still looking at my camera. That's when I bumped full impact into a man who was entering the store. "OMG! I stepped on your toes, did I hurt you?" I said. "No ma'am", he replied, "the pleasure was all mine! "

Funny story! The reflections are wonderful, I like that arched doorway, it's very regal.
