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!

Macro Monday, Easter Chocolate Eggs




In case you’re wondering, I still have not eaten the chocolate eggs I bought. They’re so pretty I just cannot gobble them down like that. They’re part of my Easter decoration for now. But I did have some fun photographing their lovely detail. 
Don’t worry, you won’t put on weight just looking at these!









More Macro Monday at Lisa’s Chaos.

Ballerina Girl said...

Wow, they look like they were hand painted...and so yummy!
I can't wait for Easter when I can have chocolate and sweets again!!


Moonrayvenne said...

When I saw the pic of them the other day, I thought they were just painted eggs. I did not realize they were the chocolate ones you got. LOL! They look delicious! (((HUGS)))

Caution/Lisa said...

Oh, yes I most certainly did gain weight from looking. ARRGH!!!

Colleen said...

I'm sure they are as delicious as they look.

Beautiful photos, Jientje! Little birds and eggs, what perfect representatives of Spring! I understand not wanting to eat the little works of art...I do the same with some small candles I possess, cannot burn them!

RA said...

I can see why you don't have the heart to eat them. These chocolates look so pretty. Have a wonderful week, Jientje :)

James said...

The egge are delicious works of art and now they are being artfully used in your photos. The top picture with the birds is perfect.

I missed the last few days of your photos, but I am now all caught up and I love your new pictures. You see we are having March Madness in the USA now, and everything almost stops for the men's college basketball championship which is on TV. For some of us, it is like a religious holiday. That and the Super Bowl, World Series, NBA Championship and the Masters Golf Championship are all like religious holidays in the USA. You see we have freedom of religion in the USA. : )

Regina said...

Looks great . Awesome!

Heidi said...

The more I see these, the more I agree that I probably could not eat them either- too pretty.

I thought about what you said about worrying-not to do it until you need to. That was very good advice. I'm concentrating on taking it.

They are really pretty & you've captured their detail nicely.

Maria said...

Dutchbaby said...

Stunning! Are you sure I won't gain weight looking at these?

Brenda said...

Those eggs are so beautiful, they would be hard to eat. But when there is chocolate in my house, its hard to resist!

Unknown said...

Carletta said...

Love the last one Jientje!
Nice depth of field.
I don't think I could NOT taste just one. They look delicious.

Jay said...

Those eggs are indeed beautiful, but I'm afraid I would have no trouble at all in eating them! LOL!

You got nice and close in there, didn't you? It almosts looks as if they have a texture like fur!

Loree said...

Mmmm, you know, I may be wrong, but I just think I can taste those chocolate eggs. You better make sure they are all still there :)

They are too beautiful to eat! But when you do end up eating them I bet they will be good!!

The French Bear said...

Wow, they look incredible, it is hard to believe they are chocolate! I love the displays they have, and even the packaging, stunning! They need to hire you to do their photos, you make them look amazing!!!
