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,a grandmothe and 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!


Heaven is in Belgium

Ruby Tuesday

'A new brush sweeps clean but an old brush knows the corners'

Day two, and I'm pretty well settled in in this new place of mine.
Thank you all for sticking with me and following me here.

I think I'm going to have so much fun here!
Can't wait ...

You sure keep your new place very clean :)
Love your red broom! Happy Ruby Tuesday.

Robin said...

Great angle on that first shot :).

You might consider reducing the size of the second one just a teensy tiny bit - it barely fits on the screen, which makes it a little harder to view.

Carletta said...

I too like the angle on the first shot!
You took an old broom and made it look good.

Robin's thought of reducing the size makes sense - you want the whole effect of the pic without scrolling. :)

Jama said...

I like the colour of your broom!

Jientje said...

@ Mar: And a good morning to you too!
@ Robin
@ Carletta: What you say makes perfect sense. But I tried and did not seem to get it right. All I got was a blank instead of a picture. Have to go now, but I'll try again later.
@ Jama: yeah, she's on my patio, and because I take pictures of anything ....

Linnea said...

I like your new blogspace! That is an interesting subject for RT...very creative and I like how you captured the motion of the sweeps. Well done. Hi from California...

Libby's Library said...

You know that I'll follow you anywhere!

Melli said...

Jientje... ONLY you can make a BROOM look beautiful! Love the saying at the top too!

Christine said...

And a vacuum does both. LOL

Nessa said...

Love the viewpoint.

Can you bring your great broom over here? I've got some areas on which I think it can perform magic.

Yes, incredible that you can take a broom and make it an objet d'art.

Unknown said...

Now - if you could just come over here and sweep away the problems I've been dealing with, THAT would be great.

Robynn's Ravings said...

I would never see art in an old broom. You did and now I see it, too. Isn't that the whole thing? Bringing something no one else would see? Nicely done. Hope to see you at MY place. ;-)

Tatersmama said...

I love this! Making the commonplace, beautiful!

Robynn's Ravings said...

THANK YOU DEARIE!!!! You will forever be by "matchstick" follower "111." That's what the kids and I call it when the clock turns all ones. LOL Maybe you can find some matches or matchsticks, or something that looks like those to photograph and bring even more inspiration into our fun game. :) Thanks again, truly.

I've never seen a broom look so good...still doesn't entice me to use it very much LOL

Dr.John said...

That is a good looking broom, at that. It needs to get out and do more sweeping.

Jientje said...

@ prkl: Gee thanks!!
@ gail: I told you I take pictures of anything!
@ Dirk: Tenminste één Belg die in 't Nederlands durft reageren! Ik vind het ook mooi, al is 't opletten geblazen met sommige foto's!
@ DrillerAA: Spring cleaning. Don't remind me!
@ napaboaniya: That is SO sweet of you!! And no, I won't sweep it away!
@ LinneaW: Thanks!
@ Libby: You're a pal!
@ Melli: Not only me.There are better photographers than me. But I'm a good student.
@Christine: maybe I should try to make an attrative picture of my vacuum cleaner next time. Hmmm? It IS a red one?
@Nessa: You should have seen me shooting that picture!
@ Leora: sure!
@ Lceel: Okay. I'll see if I can get the damn thing started, and then I'll hop on it and fly over, how's that?
@ Robyn's ravings: there is art in everything.
@ Tatersmama: me too!
@ Robynn's Ravings: You're welcome!
@ Thom:no need to!
@ Dr John: Tell that to Thom!

Great shots, I love the detail and colours! I have some small trouble with the loading time on your new blog, but I'll live ;)

ah, a good old fashioned broom. When none of that fancy stuff will do, revert back to the broom!
