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

Saturday…. Something??



Water drops and roses…
I could not resist the sight of them.


It’s been a very busy Saturday.
My photography class has taken up most of my time today.
And so I’m late. 
Here I am staring at this screen, trying to find the right words to say. 
My mind is a complete blank.
I think I’ll just leave it like it is, and carry on with the business of the day.

Why oh why are there never enough hours in a day for me eh?

I do not know... I, myself, find some days I have not enough... other days I have too many! I would really RATHER have not enough!

The roses... and the raindrops... are lovely! Have a great day!

These roses are truly lovely.

This is a great shot!

Christine said...

Right now, I feel like there are too many. Hospital time goes by very slow. Love the roses. I bet they smell heavenly.

Ellie said...

Love the roses! In Bulgaria they give yellow roses to a lady when the man is jealous :) I like the details - we can see the veins where all that rose butter and juice is flowing!

Wanda..... said...

Those roses look like they would taste like oranges or apricots...I must be hungry Jientje!

quilly said...

That is one of my favorite shades of flowers! So delicate! The droplets add a lot!
