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



I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs because it makes you see the world rather than just look at it. 

~Author Unknown~


Tonight is my second lesson in my photography class.
In the mean time I’m practicing, practicing … practicing.


More Ruby Tuesday posts at Work of the Poet.

Beautiful. Water droplets are a favorite subject of mine, not that we get all that much chance at them around here.

Love the quote, so true.

Oh so pretty! I'm sure you will learn so much in your class. I would love love love to take one but it is not in the financial or the time budget right now. Perhaps after Christmas.
I am so looking forward to seeing the results of what you learn!
