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

Sepia Scenes. Whining and Dining

Hey, pssst?

Overhere, Jientje ! I'm here!!
Zoom in will you?

That's better.
Have you seen my Mom, Jientje?

I'm hungry.

My nephew says I'm always hungry.
But I think HE is always sleepy.

I wish she would come .
Because I'm huuuuun-gry!

I am trying to figure out how to do this myself.
But I'm not quite there yet.
When I grow up .... I'm gonna ... I wanna ...

But... but .... I'm huuuuun-gry no-ow!

Where the hell is she?
Oh wait, I think I see her. There you are Mom.
I'm hu ...

O gee thank you Mom.
That was tasty.
When will you be back?
I'm huuuuuuuuun-gry!

Look for more Sepia Scenes here.

That is preciouse! I remember as a kid every spring there was a nest in the corner of one of the windows. Observed that hungry little ones for days and days. Every winter when the birds were gone my Mom took the nest down to clean the window - and in the spring it was there again - on the same place. Thank you for these pictures - they unlocked many forgoten drawers in my memory!

Melli said...

Amazing... so utterly amazing! I am truly AWED by these...

Wanda..... said...

Well Jientje...you were right...he wasn't trapped after all...just very hungry...he still looks like he's wrestling to get out though to me! :) They have such sweet faces!

Nessa said...

That one with the Lady Bug is amazing.

Susanne said...

Oh they are sweet! Love the one with the lady bug in there too.

quilly said...

How cute! And how did you get so lucky as to find them in an easily watchable and photographable (yes, I made up that word, it works, doesn't it?) place?!

Robynn's Ravings said...

That's just one big AWWWWWWWWWW!!!!

Willow said...

So cute! And amazing photography!

Avril said...

Ah - those are so cute!! Amazing photos! All of them - been scrolling down as I've missed a few (no energy for blogging - have had bad dose of flu). But your photos have made my day!!!

Thanks for visiting my blog yesterday!

@ Thom: the story just came to me as I was editing the pictures!
@ Korie: Why thank you!
@ Jacki: My favourites!
@ ellievellie: Yup, same here. Lots and lots of Summer memories at my grandmother's house.
@ Melli: Yes, I love them too.
@ Wanda: Now he wants to learn how to fly no doubt. He thinks that would be a lot more adventurous than waiting for his mom to return. That's why!
@ Nessa: Yeah. Very lucky shot. One of my favourites!
@ Susanne: I was surprised too when I viewed them on my computer! Knowing how I love swallows AND ladybugs because they both bring good luck, this picture deserves a little space on my wall I think!
@ Kirby3131: You would notice them allright. They make themselves be heard, don't worry!
@ Dianne: Thanks!
@ Mama: Looking back on what happened today, I think the ladybug DID bring me luck!
@ Quilly: Love the word, LOL! We were sitting down, having a drink, and there they were, feeding their kids just across the street. I watched it for a while, and then decided to try and capture it with my zoom. My camera is not that heavy, so I could easily pull it off handholding it. I used my elbows for extra stability and support. But the real surprise came when I edited them and saw the ladybug. That was the icing on the cake I think?
@ Robynn: You said that so well! Awww!
@ Willow: a good camera perhaps?
@ Avril. Yes, I saw you were ill. Get well soon! Glad you liked them!
@ Merisi: Thank you, it came as a complete surprise!
@ Shirley Wells: Thank you so much!

Jientje said...

Sandi Mc Bride: It came as a complete but very happy surprise!
@ Gaston Studio: You are welcome!
@ Cheffie Mom: I'm very proud of it!
@ Only a movie: I did, I had fun. And thank you, I am honoured!
@ Brian Miller: I'm glad you liked it!
