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!

Window Views, and a Door …






I’m usually very drawn to beautiful or interesting doors, but I often forget to pay attention when it comes to photograph windows. I immediately fell in love with this old shop door. It’s a little eating place and the sign on the door says “it’s a pity, we’re closed”. The Muscari in the window display looked so sunny it made me want to include part of the the window as well.


But when I walked around the corner, I discovered real art painted on the blinds!
Perfect for a Window Views  ( and doors too!)

jammer, indeed!
I don't quite get the art, but it is neat to see over a plain blind.

Of course you are usually drawn to interesting or beautiful doors! I am, too! But this one is still interesting, though it's not beautiful. I like the angle of the old-fashioned door handle, and the notice is fun!

Clever idea putting a piece of art on blinds. Nice pictures too.

I love when people take the time to create art in unexpected places.

only in Europe will you find such treasures like these fun shops and the cobblestone streets and colorful buildings! The states have their own kind of beautiful finds but Europe is just....quaint and nostalgic and has such a wonderful feel of sleepy township stuff, does that make sense? I just find your pictures so delightful... hugs...
