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

Lovely sights! Belgium is one of my favorite places, Jientje. I'd love to hang out with you there, one day.

Happy, Happy New Year!

I love the walk under the branches of whatever that plant is . . . . amazing! I'll post a larger picture of the cemetery with the deer in it on Wednesday if you want to come back and have a look at it :) I forgot when I loaded the slide show I selected small size :(

Suburban Girl said...

I love your photo walk shots and the champagne glasses too. Have fun with that camera!

Gattina said...

Beautiful shots ! It's ages I haven't been in Borkrijk ! I suppose it's also very cold in Antwerp, this morning we had -8°C ! I wanted to visit the Ice Sculpture Expo in Bruges, but apparently the whole thing broke down, due to snow on the 24th ! So no ice sculpture pictures this year.

Loree said...

Love all the pictures especially the ones of the winter weather.

Jientje said...

@ kanishk : Thanks!
@ Secret Mom Thoughts : It came out better than I expected, thanks!
@ Kathy : Oooh, good! I'm glad he's decent again! Thanks for checking out my 365!
@ Paz : I hope that day will come Paz, you will be most welcome here! Happy new Year!
@ kaye : I will, thanks!
@ Rebecca : I am having fun with it!
@ Gattina : It's cold here too!
