About Me

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

Midweek Blues, Bad Habit?


mwb 1575 

I bought these cute little mini buckets for next to no money on a flea market many years ago, and they still make me smile. I use one to keep my toothpicks in, and the other two usually hold tiny bits and bobs like elastic bands or in this case a tiny block of alum and a mini nutmeg grater. Both of which I never use. I keep the alum to stop the bleeding when I cut my finger, but I always forget to use it! The little grater was packed with the nutmeg I bought and I cannot bring myself to throw it away!

I know, I know… I will throw it away after this post. I never really thought about it until now. ”Stuff” that lingers around can be such a bad habit!  



Midweek Blues is hosted by Rebecca at the Dusty Cellar.

I like it. But, then again, I like ceramics and the color blue.

Just the kind of thing I would love to pick up at a flea market too. I love the way they make you smile years later. Money well spent I would say!

They are cute little buckets. :) I keep a few things around just because they're cute, like Dennis, lol.

Jientje, I like your little pieces of pottery.
And since you got them MANY years ago, they could have become valuable. Checking on eBay might give you a starting place.
Happy MidWeek Blues. :)
