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

Weekly Winners, Review and Preview




This Weekly Winners is going to be very random. It’s a review and a preview at the same time. I had so many photo opportunities this week it’s impossible to share them all, so I’m going to give you a preview of things to come on this blog in the next couple of days.


A garden fair was held at this lovely castle and I got to photograph it


inside and outside, top to bottom!


Arts and crafts.


More photos coming up in my Window Views next Thursday.


We spent some time in my grandmother’s village.



I can never get enough of that beautiful scenery there. 
More to come on Ruby Tuesday.  

Sunlight and Spring …


Tough guys being shy…

Under construction ...


An unexpected sight in the city.


More pictures from this huge cruise ship in Midweek Blues next Wednesday.

I posted about the chocolate shop in Napoleon’s Palace earlier this week . Go here if you haven’t seen it yet. It’s worth it, it’s amazing.


More chocolate pictures tomorrow on Macro Monday.


So there, it has been a very exciting week, and I will be sharing more pictures over the next days, so stay tuned!  
Don’t forget to visit Heavenin365 for your daily dose of my photography.
Visit I am Lotus to see more Weekly Winners.
Have a great week!

Love the castle and crocus shots. Very pretty!

Tara R. said...

Beautiful set. I think the b/w close-up of the horse is my favorite. Wonderful character in that shot.

Colleen said...

Oooh, I love the sneak peeks. I can't wait to see more. The castle intrigues me.
What camera do you use? I'm trying to decide which camera to buy, but I'm just confusing myself.

Avril said...

The Retired One said...

I loved all of these...especially of the village! Gorgeous!

Joyce said...

Love all your photos and it allows me to travel to places I could not go to at this time. I love the cruise ship at the end of the little lane. Crocus sure mean SPRING! I still can't get over that chocolate shop. It is amazing and I would love to get locked in that shop over night and sample all those wonderful chocolates. I have NEVER seen a shop so grand! Thanks for sharing.


What a wonderful collection. I just LOVE those tough shy guys!

Amy said...

All wonderful!! I think I want to live in your grandmother's village.

Lotus (Sarcastic Mom) said...

Oooh, I love the yarn spinning shot and the horse. Beautiful set!

Moonrayvenne said...

I love the purple flowers & the painted eggs. These pictures are all so different. Just beautiful! (((HUGS)))

James said...

This is a wonderful selection of pictures. My favorite one is the horses in your grandmother's village. I love seeing pictures of Belgium and France. I can hardly wait for seven nonths. You know the feeling of anticipation from when you were planning your U.S. trip. :)

Unknown said...

The more you share of your world, the more I want to live there! Wish I could! They are all lovely! Can't wait to see more!

Amy W said...

I have an almost identical shot of the spring tree danglers that was supposed to be in my post today & I just realized that it didn't upload with my other pics and I missed it!

So many beautiful shots I couldn't possibly name a favorite! I'll have to check in throughout the week to see more.

Denise said...

Absolutely impossible to pick a favorite here. ALL of these are amazing!

spacedlaw said...

A great collection. I particularly like the view of the cruiser at the end of the street.

Chantelle @ photomommy said...

Love the crocuses!

The French Bear said...

Ahhh, I would love to be there, especially to see that beautiful building. I love the details and the architecture, so wonderful. Was that lady making lace or spinning? That looked very interesting, and a doll holding bobbins!!! Wonderful photos, I had to smile at the workmen, I noticed their dungarees, they must be Skillers, or something like it (remember I sell work clothes)! There is always something neat to see in your pictures, never a dull moment!!!
